CDPH has issued a press release stating that any COVID-19 vaccine requirement for students will not take effect until after full FDA approval and no sooner than July 1, 2023. For the 2022-23 school year, there will be no requirement of a COVID-19 vaccine for students to attend school.
In a related development, Sen. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) on Thursday withdrew a bill that would have required all California students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 starting in 2023. You can click here to read a statement by Dr. Pan about his decision to withdraw the legislation.
The CDPH maintains that vaccines remain an important tool in helping limit the transmission and severity of the disease, and students and staff are urged to stay up-to-date on vaccinations. The State Public Health Officer Dr. Tomás J. Aragón said, “CDPH strongly encourages all eligible Californians, including children, to be vaccinated against COVID-19.”
