California Drops Plan for K-12 Coronavirus Vaccine Mandate

California Gov. Jerry Brown has cancelled a proposal to mandate the coronavirus vaccination for all children from grades K-12. Gavin Newsom, a Democratic senator, allows three-year olds to have the vaccine. “state of emergency”The expiry date is February 28th.

Newsom declared that K-12 students will be required to get the vaccine after they have received the final approval of the Food and Drug Administration. The policy’s implementation was delayed, apparently for logistical reasons. Just one year ago, as Breitbart News reported, K-12 vaccine requirements were still a distinct possibility, as a Democrat in the state legislature offered a bill to make the coronavirus shot one of the state’s required vaccinations for attending school.

However, the policy has been scrapped, thanks to Newsom’s decision to let the state of emergency end. CalMatters Reports:

The state has dropped its plan to require the COVID-19 vaccination for K-12 students as the state of emergency comes to an end Feb. 28, after nearly three years.

That said — “we continue to strongly recommend COVID-19 immunization for students and staff to keep everyone safer in the classroom,”In a statement, the California Department of Public Health stated that they were aware of this.

The policy would have applied to all of California’s 6.7 million public and private students. But enforcing the requirement would have posed a challenge, given the vaccine’s waning immunity.

Last week, President Joe Biden told Congress that he would end the state of emergency as well as the public health emergency on coronavirus pandemics on May 11. This will close a chapter which has been ongoing for more than three decades.
