Los Angeles Unified School District’s Board of Education unanimously approved a measure on Thursday mandating Covid jabs for all students 12 and up.
“The science is clear — vaccinations are an essential part of protection against COVID-19,” Interim Superintendent Megan K. Reilly said in a statement following the vote. “The COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and requiring eligible students to be vaccinated is the strongest way to protect our school community.”
Students will have to upload proof of vaccination to the school district’s “Daily Pass” system by January 10 unless they have an exemption.
