Attorney General: Colleges can't fine unvaccinated students
An Alabama college is reimbursing students who are vaccinated against COVID-19, despite the state's ban on incentives.
Birmingham Southern is requiring all students to regularly get tested for the virus for the price of $500, but said that vaccinated students could get their money back.
Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall said so-called vaccine passports are banned by a new state law.
Colleges and other institutions are trying to put safety measures into place while Republican lawmakers are pushing back saying mandates infringe on personal liberties.
