And another one

West Contra Costa Unified School District voted last night to mandate vaccinations for students and their time line is a lot more aggressive than the other Bay Area school districts which have passed similar mandates, from NBC Bay Area:

Students 12 and older are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, with proof of their first shot by Nov. 15 and their second shot by Dec. 15, according to the new resolution.

Students younger than 12 must receive their first shot no later than 30 days after their 12th birthday and their second shot within 60 days of that date.

The resolution also mandates that district staff members and volunteers must show proof of their COVID-19 vaccination status, either complete vaccination or first shot, by Oct. 15 and must receive their second no later than Nov. 15. Final proof of full vaccination for workers is due by Dec. 7.

 

Naturally parents who showed up in person opposed the mandate, those appearing remotely supported it.

And what we’ve been seeing nationally is that vaccine mandates work. And it’s really time for Alameda Unified School District to take this under consideration with the vaccine on the cusp of being available for students under 12.
