Groups took to Lawyers Mall Wednesday to protest against the vaccine mandate for University System of Maryland students, faculty and staff.

“We should disobey. Disobedience is what challenges the mandates,” said Simon Molina, a UMD student.  “If you’re gonna wear a mask, wear a mask. If you’re going to take a vaccine, take a vaccine. But, you should never mandate a recommendation.”

USM said exemptions will be granted, by law, for medical or religious reasons.
