On July 14th, 2021 I sent my first direct correspondence via email to “Dr.” Gillian Ice.
In this email I clearly stated to Gillian Ice that Once House Bill 244 is effective it will be illegal for a University to require a vaccine that is not fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
The next day July 15th, 2021 Gillian Ice replied to my email.
In Gillians email reply to me she acknowledged that it will be illegal to mandate Emergency Use Authorized (EUA) vaccines. She also claims if no FDA approved vaccine is available they would change the public health strategy (I will show you how this was a lie later in the article). This is where you can see the vagueness begin. notice she refers to it as “the vaccine” very unspecific considering 3 different vaccines were under EUA at the time.
Keep in mind this is before Ohio University’s vaccine mandate and before ANY vaccine was FDA approved.
On August 23rd, 2021 the FDA approved the first and currently only approved COVID Vaccine. The vaccine is called “Comirnaty”. It is produced by Pfizer. On August 31st, 2021 Ohio University announced its COVID-19 vaccine requirement
On September 3rd, just days after the vaccine mandate was put in place I sent Gillian Ice the following Email describing the known risks of the COVID vaccine.
In my email after sharing evidence from the CDC and FDA that showed the information on OU’s website claiming the vaccine was safe was false. I Then specifically disproved the lies on OU’s website as you can see in the part below.
After my email to Gillian the school quickly scrambled to update the FAQs, But they didn’t update them to share accurate information about the adverse effects of the experimental vaccine, they simple removed any question and answer about adverse effects. Luckily I made sure to archive the page before they changed it.
Gillian did not reply to this email for over a month. Then, on October 4th, 2021 she finally did. Her reply is below.
In her response she provided one study THAT IS NOT PEER REVIEWED claiming vaccinated people are less likely to be infected. My previous posts have more than proved this is not true and that Natural Immunity provides far better protection than any of the vaccines.
To this point it seems Gillian has disregarded all the studies the data I have provided her, My emails did however seem to strike a nerve at this point. Because I had gone out of my way to provide this information, Gillian went out of her way to inspect my medical history and COVID test results. This made me feel extremely uncomfortable that a University Employee can access my private information because simply because they disagree with me, from this point on I felt Gillian did not care about my psychical or mental health.
I replied with multiple peer reviewed studies and more once again proving Gillian wrong.
Now keep in mind Comirnaty is the ONLY FDA approved vaccine. On October 21st 2021 after once again not receiving a reply for weeks I sent another email to Gillian.
My email was very long so I will highlight the important parts. The following is directly from this email to Gillian Ice:
Since Comirnaty is the ONLY FDA APPROVED Vaccine for COVID-19 and Because Comirnaty is not available in the United States yet Ohio University in knowingly requiring students to get Emergency Use Authorized Inoculations. Blatantly in violation of HB 244.
As the FDA clearly states the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine is EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZED.
Pfizer’s own website says the Comirnaty is Approved and the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is Authorized.
PFizer also clearly states the two vaccines ARE LEGALLY DISTINCT.
Comirnaty’s own website clearly states the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZED. This is as of 10/20/21 it has been clearly stated since the approval of Comirnaty.
Making matters worse Ohio University’s health officials have not updated their webpage information to reflect these facts either because they don’t know or don’t care. Either way it seems hard to believe people with so little competence can continue making decisions for thousands of student’s health. Comirnaty is not listed as an accepted COVID-19 vaccine on the website, and has not been listed since Comirnaty was approved, as seen in the archive link from August here. This clearly shows the webpage has been updated but Ohio University still didn’t update this information to make it accurate during those changes. Despite me personally reaching out multiple times to express the concern of Ohio University hosting and publishing medical misinformation on its website.
The two Pfizer vaccines are legally distinct, but the University has decided to describe the vaccines as one “Pfizer” vaccine. This is obviously confusing, and it is sad to see when one of the vaccines in question is Approved and experimental and the other is Emergency Use Authorized and experimental. The University Know’s it is illegal to require any vaccine that is not the Comirnaty vaccine for COVID, and the attempt to cover itself by leaving the health orders broad and confusing is a sad ethical failure on the Universities part. Knowing vaccine mandates lower public trust in vaccines and knowing Ohio University’s lack of competent health leaders also hurts vaccine rates it has become clear the best way to get people who want to be vaccinated inoculated is to give them the freedom to choose what treatment they get and when. A decision that should be made by a patient and their doctor, not by a University Health Official that can’t be bothered to do deep research into something that has harmed so many students directly, and even more indirectly.
All the way back In October I told Gillian that no FDA approved vaccine was available in the United States and therefore Ohio University’s Vaccine Mandate was Illegal. Remember back in July Gillian acknowledged she understood this law, she said if there was not a fully approved vaccine “we will switch to a different public health strategy”. It is now December and it is now clear this was another one of Gillian’s bold faced lies. There is still no Fully FDA approved vaccine available in the United States, but Ohio University still has not changed their public health strategy.
According to Pfizer (the manufacturer of Comirnaty and the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid Vaccine) Comirnaty and the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine ARE LEGALLY DISTINCT.
According to the CDC Vaccines.gov displays the “types of COVID-19 vaccines available”.
This means COMIRNATY the ONLY FDA approved Covid vaccine IS NOT available ANYWHERE in the United States. This means Ohio University’s vaccine mandate is unlawful in the State of Ohio. Read my previous post here to learn more about all the laws and ethics violations Ohio University is currently committing.
But you don’t have to believe me just yesterday OhioHealth Admitted they STILL are ONLY distributing EUA COVID vaccines, and they ARE NOT distributing Comirnaty finally confirming what I have been telling Gillian and Ohio University for months.
One of Ohio’s largest hospital systems is not distributing the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) fully approved COVID-19 vaccine, it confirmed to The Ohio Star Wednesday.
“As of today’s stock, we are currently distributing the Pfizer vaccine that does not have the Comirnaty branding label,” Katie Logan, a spokeswoman for OhioHealth said by email.
HB 244, recently passed by the Ohio State Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Mike DeWine (R) says, “a public school or state institution of higher education shall not . . . Require an individual to receive a vaccine for which the United States food and drug administration has not granted full approval.”
The Star asked those universities whether they were distributing Comirnaty or Pfizer’s EUA vaccine. Ohio University told The Star that OhioHealth distributes their vaccines.
“They are being distributed in this area by the Athens City-County Health Department and OhioHealth,” Jim Sabin, a school spokesman said.
This means Ohio University has not administered A SINGLE DOSE of Comirnaty. This means Ohio University DOES NOT HAVE FDA APPROVED VACCINES. This means Ohio University’s Mandate is UNLAWFUL. This means Gillian Ice knew about HB 244 making it a law that Vaccines must be approved to be mandated, but Gillian can no longer claim she was unaware they were not administering a NON FDA APPROVED VACCINE because I told her they were months ago, and now Ohio University’s provider of vaccines OhioHealth has also admitted this.
This is part of what’s led Students at Ohio University have had to file a lawsuit, you can learn more about that here.

Don’t you think a School that relied on the approval of a vaccine in order to okay the mandate for that vaccine should inform the students that: the school can’t provide and the students can’t receive that approved vaccine? Shouldn’t that be a very basic part of informed consent? Why wasn’t it? Why did the school feel the need not to share this information?
