DC Student Athletes, School Staff, Ordered to Get Mandatory Vaccinations


DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has ordered all student-athletes over the age of 12 to be vaccinated, with no option to opt out and undergo testing instead.

All school “employees, contractors, interns, and volunteers” will also be required to take the vaccines.

The mandate will go into effect on November 1 and applies to all DC public schools, public charter schools, private schools, parochial schools, and child care facilities regulated by the Office of State Superintendent of Education.

“We know that vaccinations are the most effective tool to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect children who are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine,” said Mayor Bowser in a statement. “This new mandate requirement, without a test-out option, will add another critical layer to the robust measures we have implemented to reopen our schools and keep our child care centers safe. We also know that sports are a high-risk activity. Requiring athletes to get vaccinated will ensure they not only stay safe, but also stay in the classroom and are able to participate in school-based extracurricular athletics.”

Bowser’s statement said that there will be exemptions for religious or medical reasons.

The Hill reports that “according to the D.C. government’s vaccine dashboard, nearly 70 percent of the city’s population has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Roughly 55 percent of those aged 12 to 17 in D.C. have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine so far.”

The Los Angeles Unified School District has also ordered all eligible students be fully vaccinated by Jan. 10.

Students are required to take the first dose by Nov. 21 and the second dose by Dec. 19. If a student wants to participate in extracurricular activities the deadline is even earlier. In that case, they must have their first dose by October 3 and second by the end of the month.

“The science is clear – vaccinations are an essential part of protection against COVID-19,” Interim Superintendent Megan Reilly said in a statement earlier this month. “The COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and requiring eligible students to be vaccinated is the strongest way to protect our school community.”

Families will be required to upload proof of vaccine to the Los Angeles Unified’s Daily Pass system for each student.

    Yo Timcast ! Check out what Pfizer did ( allegedly, without parental consent) to kids in Nigeria with a meningitis vax.

    Maybe try electing a straight, white man to run things if you don’t want everything to be broken? Every single one of these awful cities have a black lesbian running things.

    The most effective tool to slow the spread? Yeah sure worked for Duke and their 356 cases in their 98% vaccinated student and 92% vaccinated employee population.

    Nice of the Republicans to invite us over for a pandemic, eh Luigi?

    Luigi:
    I hope they brought lots of Ivermectin!

    Mario:
    Luigi, look! [points to a letter on the door] It’s from Mayor Bowser! [reads] Dear pesky plebes; the Wokeists and I have taken over the Bullshit Kingdom! Tyranny is now a permanent guest at all of my DC Fascist Establishments! I dare you to defy me if you can! [turns to Luigi] We gotta fight the mandates!

    Luigi:
    [pointing at the screen/player] And you gotta help us!

    “Vaccines are safe and effective”, drones the NPC. Meanwhile the FDA has a public outcry of WTF are you idiots doing? on youtube.

    Safe and effective. Until two years from now everyone is sterile. Or dead.

    I mandate that you stop mandating things.

    Counterpoint: No

    We are the guinea pig.

    I’m not so worried about the vaccine itself as I am about where all this is leading to. I think this will never stop…. there’s no reason to think this won’t lead to mandatory boosters every six months or every year. Soon it will be required for all children, and if you don’t give it to your kids, CPS will come after you.
    This is approaching evil.
