State Delays Covid-19 Vaccine Mandate for Schoolchildren Until 2023


California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced his administration’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate for schoolchildren has been delayed until next year.

In 2021, the Golden State was the first to announce that it would require all school-aged children to receive the vaccine.

Fox News reports:

While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone above the age of five years old get vaccinated against COVID-19 – and everyone ages 12 years and older get boosted – the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is the only vaccine authorized or approved for emergency use in children ages 5 through 17 years.

Additionally, federal regulators have not yet granted final approval for coronavirus vaccine use to anyone younger than 16.

“So based on these two facts — we don’t have full FDA approval, and we recognize the implementation challenges that schools and school leaders would face — that we are not moving to have a vaccine requirement for schools in this coming academic year and no sooner than July 2023,” California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly explained in an interview.

“Until children’s access to COVID vaccination is greatly improved, I believe that a state-wide policy to require COVID vaccination in schools is not the immediate priority, although it is an appropriate safety policy for many school districts in communities with good vaccine access,” he in a release.

Newsom said he was waiting for final approval from Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulators to enforce the mandate.

  1. ironically picture shows a couple little kids celebrating. Probably the fact they are allowed to live a little longer without one of the 1291 possible terrible side effects like myocarditis (sp) or neurological issues for the rest of their lives terrible ,and sad

  2. Newsom is an idiot and needs to be thrown out of California government as soon as possible before he ruins this once beautiful state.

  3. The mandates to kill the population will be re-enacted as soon as they can get away with it. I say charge those who force mandates with terrorist activity.

    1. people need to resist medical tyranny.
      If anyone comes at me or my family with a deadly shot they will get a shot of their own.

  4. Why are they still forcing experimental Covid vaccines, that have proven do not stop people from being infected with the Covid virus, and the Covid virus has an over 99% recovery rate, while children never die from it unless they already have at least one preexisting morbid condition, as all the experimental Covid vaccines have been found to cause terrible side-affects and even death in many of its recipients, and nobody knows what it will cause to the recipients health in the short and long term future?

    Why does the FDA still have all the Covid vaccines still labeled as experimental, if they are really safe to use, or are all their terrible side-effects causing the FDA to retain the experimental label in order to prevent the manufacturers of these Covid vaccines, that have proven themselves not to work in preventing anyone from being infected with the Covid virus, from being sued for all the side-effects and deaths that they are being blamed for?

    Think about it, and watch who is getting the big money from “Big Pharma”, as always to weed out corruption, just follow the money, as there is nobody more corrupt than the CDC and FDA, and many of our federal government agencies, that all have been changed into political adversaries against conservative, Christian, and Republican policies and agendas, while they push the liberal propaganda of the Democrats and aid them in their aggressive attempts in seeking political power.

  5. Newsome is only doing this because he’s afraid he’ll lose this up coming election and he will. He doesn’t care about the American children and adults. All he cares about is himself.

    Plus Phizer and Moderna isn’t really a vaccine. If you read what they submitted to the FDA, no where do they mention this is a vaccine. Instead they call it a GENE THERAPY which has the same ingredients in it used to treat chemo cancer patients. Do you really want to have something injected into your body that is actually made to treat chemotherapy patients? I don’t.

    It takes at the very minimum according to Dr. Fauchi, if all the clinical trials go perfectly and all the human trials go perfectly, it can take up to a minimum of 10 YEARS to get an approval from the FDA for a TRUE VACCINE. They don’t want to wait that long anymore.

    This so called COVID-19 injection and boosters are NOT a vaccine, but a GENE THERAPY!
