|Subject:||Prohibiting COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates for Children|
|As we continue monitoring the ongoing reviews of the COVID-19 vaccines by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for emergency use authorization, full FDA approval, boosters, and even indications for use in children; it is imperative that we acknowledge parental decision in this process.
According to the CDC, children birth age to fifteen months are recommended to receive ten immunizations, most of which include three or four total doses throughout that first year and a half of their lives. Depending on a parent or guardian’s decision and pediatrician’s advice for receipt in line with the CDC recommendations, there are numerous ‘Catch-up vaccination’ processes to ensure that children are fully vaccinated in preparation for school around age five.
My legislation would prohibit COVID-19 vaccine mandates for children and as a condition for entry into K-12 schools.
Please join me in supporting this important legislation.
Introduced as SB937
