California Will No Longer Enforce the COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate for K-12 Schools

Good news!

The California Department of Public Health has announced that the state will no longer seek to get all K–12 students vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend school.

It can be recalled, the state of California will require all students to get the COVID-19 vaccine before they are allowed to enroll in public schools, according to an executive order signed by Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom in 2021.

Fresh off of a rigged recall election, Newsom has gone into overdrive.

“There’s still a struggle to get to where we need to be,” Newsom said. “And that means we need to do more, and we need to do better.”

“This is just another vaccine,” Newsom said. The Covid vaccine will join “a well-established list that currently includes 10 vaccines and well-established rules and regulations that have been advanced by the Legislature for decades.”

A delay in enforcing this mandate was announced by state officials last year, giving people until at least the summer of 2023 to comply.

On Friday, public health officials announced that they would no longer be pursuing this strategy as the state nears the end of its COVID emergency on February 28.

However, the department still recommends the vaccination of students and staff.

“CDPH is not currently exploring emergency rulemaking to add COVID-19 to the list of required school vaccinations, but we continue to strongly recommend COVID-19 immunization for students and staff to keep everyone safer in the classroom,” the department said in a statement. “Any changes to required K-12 immunizations are properly addressed through the legislative process.”
