  1. Does the university realize if a student has an adverse reaction not only will they get money from the compensation fund but can sue the university also. Recommending is one thing but forcing means the university has to accept the consequences. I recommend those that okay-ed this plan should be terminated. This could lead to more adverse publicity which the university does not need.
