Pending Federal Approval, New Bill Will Require NY School Children to Receive COVID-19 Vaccine
Written by Site Hub on October 27, 2021
Now that it has been reported that the FDA advisory committee recommends the COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11, a new bill would require all New York students to be vaccinated in order to attend school. This bill was introduced last week by Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz, D-Bronx. If the bill is approved, it would add COVID-19vaccines to the list of other vaccines that students are required to have for school, effective 30 days after full federal approval for children. It would also require the state Health Department to develop a vaccination program.
In a statement, Dinowitz said: “I would hope that the number one concern that people would have is protecting the lives of children. I don’t know that there have been many instances of negative reactions (to the vaccines), but what we do know for a fact is that we are closing in three-quarters of a million dead Americans from COVID.”
