California Governor Gavin Newsom announced on October 1 that all public school children would need to be vaccinated with the Covid-1 vaccine after receiving full approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), affecting them and their children. Can.
Currently, the government has approved the Pfizer vaccine for people 16 years of age or older, and older high school students in public or private schools must get the job.
In addition, emergency approval has been granted only for vaccines for 12-15 year olds; This means that when the FDA approves for that age, it must be obtained before the seventh grade and then before going to class.
This requirement could be implemented by January or July 2022.
Marie Burke, chairman of the Orange County Board of Education and a teacher herself, said it was up to parents to decide what was best for their children.
“I am certainly not proud that California is the first state to issue this order. I think parents are the best for their children to make such decisions, so I am very disappointed, ”Burke told The Epoch Times.
“I firmly believe in the rights of parents and parents know what is best for their children. This vaccine is the least tested of any vaccine. It’s not a virus that kills a lot of children unless they have a deadly co-disease, and I think it’s an official exaggeration. ”
Burke said that because of this measure, he believes many parents will expel their children from their home schooling. He added that many parents do not want their children to wear masks at school and be vaccinated.
“I really think you’re going to see a huge amount of kids coming out of school and being home-educated,” he said. “We are not in a state of emergency. We’re not one for adults, kids don’t mind. ”
John Crank, a parent of a student in the Tustin Unified School District, said he felt the move was a “general government exaggeration.”
“[The mandate is] Not unexpected. As soon as Newsm won the recall, we all knew that all these little things would start coming from him, ”Shrink told The Epoch Times.
“In my opinion, this is a general government excess. I am not against Vaxer. I’m pro-choice, and that’s your business, it’s not my business. So, the fact is that this is happening to a bunch of kids who are not really at risk of getting seriously ill. [is not good.]
Those who are in favor of the mandate will argue that students will spread it to adults who are more at risk, but that the problem should be taken care of if adults are vaccinated, Shrank said.
“If you’re worried about it, get vaccinated, it’s your business,” he said. “I don’t think our government needs to tell us what to do with our children. It’s my vision if I want to get vaccinated for my kids, I will do it. If I don’t want to do it, it should be my choice … It’s no longer a personal choice, it’s a matter of government intervention. “
Schrank added that the order would probably force parents to bring their children back to virtual education like last year, which left many students behind.
On Twitter, Newsom cited other vaccination requirements as evidence that the Covid-1 vaccine should also be needed.
The governor wrote on Twitter, “CA would like to get the Kovid-1 vaccine for our children to come to school.” “It will take effect after full FDA approval. Our schools already need vaccines for measles, mumps and more. Why? Because vaccines work. It’s about keeping our kids safe and healthy.”
Others were supportive of the move, citing it as a common sense solution to the epidemic.
“This common sense measure will save lives!” Gabriel Oliveira wrote in a tweet.
“Thank you! Our kids deserve a safe healthy school! Our school in Fresno County is not yet masked! The teachers were out, the kids were out! Let’s get it done!” Mirna Ansel also mentioned on Twitter.
“I appreciate the vaccination order. I just hope it leads to a ramp for masking and all other covid protocols in schools. I want to volunteer in class again and get some fun things that kids can bring to school, ”Chrissy Reagan added in a comment.
