Los Angeles school board orders ALL students 12 and over to get vaccinated

Los Angeles County school officials voted unanimously on Thursday to order COVID-19 inoculations for all students aged 12 and over, the largest school district in the United States to take that step.

School board members approved the shots over the objection of several parents who said in Spanish they were concerned about the safety of vaccines and should have the right to make that decision for their children.

'I do not see this as your choice or my choice,' board member Jackie Goldberg said. 'I see this as a community necessity. That means people have to do things they're not comfortable with, they're not sure of, that may even contain some risk.'

The board's vote Thursday makes Los Angeles by far the largest of a handful of districts with a vaccine requirement. Nearby Culver City imposed a similar policy last month for its 7,000 students. LA has about 630,000 students.

I wonder if the City of Atlanta public schools might try this. Talk about the **** hitting the fan if that happens.

Can science figure out a way to add the vaccine to the water supply?

Excellent, and simple explanation by Goldberg. No drama.

A large district in a “friendly” state can do that. Most of us live in areas where all it takes is 3 screeching parents for the school board to cower and run away from any hint of so-called “controversy.”

This was actually the LAUSD Board of Education, not L.A. County BoE.

Don't kid yourself - if LAUSD possessed that power, it would have arrived at this decision long before now. I'm sure it took its lead from Biden's announcement.

I worked at LAUSD HQ for three years. Trust me when I tell you there is WAY more than enough politics in the District to go around.

LAUSD makes its own weather.

San Francisco schools have had no outbreaks since they opened in August, and child infection rates have remained flat. They're doing something right out there.

I agree but I think it was due more to mom than the school system.

Thanks guys! And absolutely. My mother worked at my elementary school the entire time her children attended there. She was always made personal friends with our teachers. It was a magical time.

It's called Washington Preparatory High School now. It was just Washington High when I went there (I hate that they added "Preparatory" to the name).

Henry Clay Junior High on Western, across the street from the Golf Course.

West Athens Elementary School for the 6th grade.
118th Street Elementary School prior to that (mom worked at this school).

Involved parents = involved students = involved teachers. That's how a school works when it's at it's very best, anyway.

The company where I work has performed E-rate related work at all those schools over the years, some of them more than once. I think of the four schools, the only one I've been to personally is Clay MS (which is right down the street from where I live AND work).



It is what it is.
