California Reverses COVID Vaccine Requirement For Students

It took them literally years, but California is finally catching up with the rest of America.

Schoolchildren will no longer require to be vaccinated against COVID to attend school starting on March 1st.

California is one of the last places in the country (the world?) to admit that we're going to need to go back to normal at some point.

Although, I'm not even sure if they're willing to say that at this point.

Maybe they don't want the restrictions to end, they just don't see anyway to extend Governor Gavin Newsom's "emergency" declarations.

Although this particular vaccination rule is a Department of Public Health rule and not Newsom's decision, it still shows how slowly the whole state is reacting to our changing world while Gavin Newsom is in charge.

California's Department of Public Health said that while the vaccine is no longer going to be required, it "is an important tool for keeping kids healthy and schools open and that it strongly recommends vaccination against the disease, noting that it had contributed to keeping children there in school."

"The state’s SMARTER Plan continues to provide an adequate framework to address the current COVID-19 situation, and has led to the decision to end the COVID-19 State of Emergency on February 28, 2023. As such, CDPH is not currently exploring emergency rulemaking to add COVID-19 vaccinations 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. Any changes to required K-12 immunizations are properly addressed through the legislative process."
