Earlier this month, IU Health announced it would require all of its employees to get their COVID-19 vaccinations by September. But there are some who say a vaccine mandate could lead to medical discrimination.

On today's show we find out how people are reacting to these announcements coming out of IU Health and several universities across the state. We talk about the pros and cons of having vaccine mandates, as well as learn about potential legal repercussions.

Can employers and schools legally require their staff and students to get a vaccine? What happens if someone doesn't get it?
