COVID-19 immunizations will be required for public school pupils in California.
Gov. Gavin Newsom stated Friday that all pupils in California will be required to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine in order to attend public school.
After the Food and Drug Administration gets complete approval to the COVID-19 vaccine for children, the requirement will take effect.
Newsom tweeted, “Our schools currently require vaccines for measles, mumps, and other diseases.” “Why? Vaccines are effective.
“This is about ensuring the safety and health of our children.”
During a visit to a San Francisco primary school, Newsom revealed the new requirement.
Depending on FDA approval, he said the requirement will be broken down by grade groupings — K-6 and 7-12. In August, the FDA approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, commercialized as Comirnaty, full approval for persons aged 16 and up. For youngsters aged 12 to 15, the vaccine has been approved for emergency use.
Unvaccinated students can still attend public schools in California if they enroll in an independent study program.
Governor @GavinNewsom will make an important announcement and emphasize California’s continued efforts to protect children and teachers who have returned to full-time, in-person instruction this school year. https://t.co/VwpjQRLhL5 — California Governor’s Office (@CAgovernor) October 1, 2021
