State of California Delays School Vaccine Requirements for COVID-19

The following is a press release issued by the Mendocino County Office of Education:

Because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet fully approved the COVID-19 vaccine for children of all ages, the Governor’s Office delayed the COVID-19 school vaccine mandate until the 2023-24 school year. Any new vaccine requirements will only take effect after full FDA approval and no sooner than July 1, 2023.

Mendocino County Superintendent of Schools Michelle Hutchins released the following statement:

I am thankful for this decision to delay COVID-19 vaccine mandates for all students. Our schools and students benefit when the State gives education leaders time to effectively plan for and implement new COVID-19 prevention measures. We know COVID-19 vaccines prevent serious illness and we continue to strongly encourage eligible school staff, families, and students across Mendocino County to get vaccinated and follow all recommended COVID-19 safety measures. Mendocino County schools will continue to ensure we use the best science, data, and prevention tools available to make our schools as healthy and safe as possible for all.

  1. Totally unacceptable it’s even being considered. We need to weed a lot of these rats out of office. It’s common knowledge these vaccines degrade people’s immune systems and make them more vulnerable to the very same thing it was meant to protect against. PLANdemic.

    No thanks Pfizer.
