Should schools require Covid-19 vaccine for kids?

Most parents are against making Covid-19 vaccination mandatory for school children, but most Democrats favor such a mandate.

That’s according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.

The survey found that 31% of American adults believe public schools should make Covid-19 vaccination mandatory for students, while 58% are against making the vaccine mandatory.

In August, 43% favored schools requiring Covid-19 vaccination for children. 

Fifty percent (50%) of the survey respondents were parents or grandparents of school-age children, and 61% of them oppose schools making Covid-19 vaccination mandatory.

When it comes to party affiliation there is a sharp political divide over vaccine mandates.

Fifty-four percent (54%) of Democrats are in favor of public schools mandating Covid-19 for students, while 79% of Republicans oppose vaccine mandates.

Among those not affiliated with either major party, 63% are against schools making Covid-19 mandatory for students and 23% favor such a mandate.

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted unanimously during its Oct. 19-20 meeting to add Covid-19 vaccination to next year’s child, adolescent and adult immunization schedules.

Although the vote did not establish a mandate per se, several states follow the CDC’s recommendations.

  1. No , you need the ace2 receptor in order for the covid particles to multiply. Children under 12 do not have the ace2 receptor developed in order for the virus to adhere and multiply.

  2. NO vaccines or medical procedures should be MANDATORY! PERIOD! This should always be informed consent only and only consent by adults.

  3. Why would we vaccinate the children with a fake vaxx that doesn’t prevent transmission? What’s the point? And as the other comment states: NO MANDATES! Period. It’s a parent’s responsibility to choose what approach they feel is best for the child. I just hope more parents will learn about the miracle of the human immune system, sans medical interference. Just say NO to the Nanny State!

  4. I could die from a virus that my body has a high likelihood to overcome or die from a vaccine that could cause serious problem when I am perfectly healthy. We also know the jabs don’t prevent transmission.
    When these are the circumstances, no one should be forced to take the shot. informed consent only.
