COVID-19 Vaccines: What to Know
The San Diego Unified Board of Education unanimously approved an initiative last week requiring all employees of the district and students over the age of 16 to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Just three days later, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that a similar vaccine mandate for students would be implemented statewide.
San Diego Unified has set a schedule requiring a first COVID-19 vaccination by November 29 and a second dose by December 20. Students 16 and older who are not fully vaccinated by December 20 would not be permitted to participate in on-site education, but will be offered an alternative education program.
The FDA has given emergency approval for COVID vaccinations to be administered in the 12-15 age group. San Diego Unified recommends the vaccine for that group, although it won’t be required until full FDA approval is granted. Currently, more than 64 percent of San Diego Unified students 12 and older have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and more than 57 percent are fully vaccinated.
