California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s latest unconstitutional move has come for our nation’s most innocent and vulnerable: the children.
Taking his emergency powers to the limit, the Democrat governor last week mandated that all children who attend “in-person instruction” will be required by the state to be vaccinated against Covid-19 within the next year.
California students ages 12 and up will be forced to get the jab if they want to attend in-person classes pending the Federal Drug Administration’s approval of the Covid-19 vaccine for school-age children.
Newsom stated in a press conference on Friday that the FDA approval for children receiving the vaccine is expected to come for “different cohorts” in the coming months. The state expects that kids in grades 7 through 12 will be the first to be approved by the “next term” on either Jan. 1 or July 1, “whichever comes sooner.”
Meanwhile, the state is also wants to see all public education staff, including teachers, office staff, janitors, etc., get vaccinated by early next year as well.
To justify the decision the California governor claimed that the requirement is going to be added to the school system’s “well-established rules and regulations that have been advanced by the legislature for decades.”
While the state awaits FDA approval for school-age children, Newsom said they will be using the time to “work with districts…parents, and educators,” to allegedly “build more trust and confidence and build out a logistics so that we can deliver on what we’re building here today.”

Newsom’s latest requirement makes California the first in the nation to implement a statewide vaccine mandate for children ages 12 and up just so they can attend school.
Considering that children are already at a drastically lower risk than adults for experiencing adverse effects as a result of contracting the coronavirus, Newsom’s decision to force kids to be vaccinated is obviously more political than anything.
His despicable quest for favor and power in the Democrat Party unfortunately will come at the children’s expense.
