California voters are paying the price for not removing Governor Gavin Newsom while they had the chance. Now, he’s taking out his vengeance on parents across the state who dissent with his Covid policies by driving a further wedge in between them.
Gavin Newsom just issued a ‘vaccine mandate’ for K-12 students in public and private schools across the state.
“In the first such action in the nation, Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a mandate Friday requiring all eligible public and private schoolchildren in California to be vaccinated against COVID-19, a policy the state expects to affect millions of students,” the LA Times reported.
“The mandate would take effect for grades 7 through 12 the semester following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s full approval of the vaccine for children ages 12 and over, according to the governor’s office,” the report continued. “Students in kindergarten through sixth grade would be phased in after the vaccine is formally approved for younger children.”
“The mandate could take effect for students 12 and older as early as January 2022 if there is full federal approval for a COVID-19 vaccine for that age range, the governor said in remarks at a San Francisco school,” the Times noted.
“There’s still a struggle to get to where we need to be,” Newsom said. “And that means we need to do more, and we need to do better.”
