The CDC unanimously voted to add the Coronavirus vaccine to the schedule for children, but Oklahoma's governor is not tolerating the tyranny the CDC is trying to dish out.
"Children in Oklahoma will 'never' be forced to get the coronavirus vaccine in order to attend school as long as Gov. Kevin Stitt (R-OK) remains in charge, the governor assured on Thursday following a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) panel voting to add the coronavirus vaccine to the list of child immunization recommendations," reported Breitbart.
"The CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted in unanimous favor of adding the Chinese coronavirus shot to the federal health agency’s formal list of immunization recommendations for children," reported Breitbart.

"While states are not obliged to follow this recommendation, critics believe some jurisdictions will embrace the recommendation and enforce it. That would not be unprecedented as many states and localities enforced the CDC recommendation for universal masking in both schools and healthcare settings for months on end," according to Breitbart.
"Regardless of what the CDC says, as long as I am governor, we will never force kids to get a COVID vaccine to go to school," Stitt said.

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida assured Floridians that 'as long as I’m around,' children will not be subjected to coronavirus vaccine mandates.
"There’s been a lot of questions to our office about the CDC potentially adding COVID vaccine to the childhood immunization schedule. And I know a lot of parents are concerned about that because if that’s on the immunization schedule, the fear is that schools could potentially mandate your child to get a COVID shot even if that’s not something that you want to do," DeSantis said.
"So I just want to let everyone be clear, you know, as long as I’m around, as long as I’m kicking and screaming, there will be no COVID Shot mandates for your kids," he said.
DeSantis emphasized that the decision should belong to the parent, not the government.
