Harvard Business School is shutting down its in-person classes due to breakthrough cases, despite a student vaccination rate of at least 96%.
“With the support of Harvard University leaders, advised by city and state public health officials, we have decided to move all first-year MBA students and some in the second year, to remote learning for the week of 9/27 to 10/03,” HBS spokesperson Mark Cautela said in a statement on Monday.
The move comes after “a steady rise in breakthrough infections,” the school admitted.
“Contact tracers who have worked with positive cases highlight that transmission is not occurring in classrooms or other academic settings on campus. Nor is it occurring among individuals who are masked,” Cautela added, ridiculously.
The annual cost of attendance for Harvard Business School is $73,440. Students will now have to fork over their high-priced education dollars for distance learning.
“Ninety-six percent of Harvard University’s employees are vaccinated, while 95% of its students are vaccinated, according to the university’s COVID-19 testing dashboard,” MSN reported.
“Harvard is requiring vaccination against COVID-19 for all of its community members, including students, faculty, staff and researchers,” the report added. “There were 62 positive tests among graduate students and three in its undergraduate population for the week of September 19.”
Harvard Business School shutting down despite a 96% student vaccination rate comes at a time when President Joe Biden has set a target for returning America to “normal” at a 97-98% vaccination rate.
REPORTER: "How many Americans need to be vaccinated for us to get back to normal?"
BIDEN: "97%, 98%. I think we'll get awful close. But I'm not the scientist. I think one thing is for certain. A quarter of the country can't go unvaccinated and us not continue to have a problem." pic.twitter.com/oT0zRXxpJo

REPORTER: “How many Americans need to be vaccinated for us to get back to normal?”
BIDEN: “97%, 98%. I think we’ll get awful close. But I’m not the scientist. I think one thing is for certain. A quarter of the country can’t go unvaccinated and us not continue to have a problem.”
It looks like Harvard is already near Biden’s goal of a 97-98% vaccination rate and it still has a huge problem on its hands.
The Covid shots clearly do not stop the spread of the virus; therefore, they are not a public health matter. They are a symptom-mitigation tool that should be available to a patient upon consultation with a doctor.
At least 150 million Americans have gotten Covid and recovered from it, based on CDC calculations, and thus, have superior natural immunity. Nonetheless, even the ‘best and brightest’ at Harvard refuse to recognize natural immunity and will instead rely on vaccines that are failing to ‘stop the spread.’
