‘I agree’ with California mandating Covid vaccines for school students – Fauci

Anthony Fauci has voiced support for California Governor Gavin Newsom’s decision to mandate vaccines for all students once they are fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

“I agree with what Gov. Newsom did in California,” Fauci said.

“People need to realize that having a vaccine requirement for schools is not a new, novel thing that is very peculiar or specific to COVID-19,” he continued.

“We’ve been doing this for decades.”

Gov. Newsom announced the news of the vaccine mandate last Friday and will begin with children above the age of 12.

Depending on FDA approval, the mandate could come into effect in January 2022, or at the beginning of the 2022 school year.

“It’s actually ongoing with other vaccines, so let’s do it with a virus that’s very, very serious,” Fauci said.
