The Solano County Board of Education proposes next week to wade into the Covid-19 vaccination debate with a resolution that, if approved, would take a stand against a vaccine mandate for schoolchildren.
An item up for consideration Wednesday is consideration of a resolution requesting that Gov. Gavin Newsom rescind the proposed Covid-19 vaccine mandate for children and teens in public and private schools, and veto any legislation that would require such a mandate.
Newsom has called for such a requirement for age groups for which vaccinations have received full authorization. Such a requirement could be in place for the start of the 2022-23 academic year.
