Colorado Gov. Jared Polis and Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont, both Democrats, joined GOP governors from Alabama, Florida, Iowa, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and Virginia in pushing back against the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) decision to add COVID-19 vaccination to the 2023 childhood immunization schedule.
Under the new rule, school children must be injected with the COVID-19 shot – which has been linked to a plethora of adverse reactions – before they can enroll in public schools.
A report from the Daily Signal mentioned that an additional five states with GOP governors – Arkansas, Montana, South Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming – have reiterated that COVID-19 vaccines will not be mandated for students who wish to enroll in public education.
Journalist Margaret Menge also cited in a Substack post an email sent by the Indiana State Department of Health that said the Hoosier State "will not make [the COVID-19 vaccine] a required vaccine for school children." Indiana is led by Gov. Eric Holcomb, a member of the GOP.
In all, a total of 17 states – 15 GOP-led and two Democrat-led – expressed their refusal to comply with the CDC's new mandate.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, is the only one who has openly embraced the rule. He announced that the Golden State will follow the public health agency's rule and require children to get injected with the COVID-19 vaccine as a prerequisite for attending public schools in the state. (Related: Not even ONE state legislature has passed a covid vaccine mandate – it's all rogue governors and local officials doing the dirty work.)
Moreover, Menge cited 10 other GOP gubernatorial candidates who declared that they will not mandate the COVID-19 vaccines for school children if elected. They are Lee Zeldin (New York), Darren Bailey (Illinois), Heidi Ganahl (Colorado), Kari Lake (Arizona), Bob Stefanowski (Connecticut), Tudor Dixon (Michigan), Tim Michels (Wisconsin), Dan Cox (Maryland), Derek Schmidt (Kansas) and Doug Mastriano (Pennsylvania).
Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA vaccine technology, put in his two cents on the CDC's decision in an Oct. 21 Substack article. He mentioned that the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices unanimously voted to add the COVID-19 injections to the childhood schedule. This schedule, Malone added, determines what vaccines a state will require children to attend public schools.
"Mainstream media is pretending that states determine what vaccines are used, but the truth is that pediatricians use the CDC schedule," said the mRNA vaccine pioneer. "State public health systems use the schedule to determine which vaccines to require [for] children to enter schools."
Malone warned: "Therefore, we can expect an even bigger homeschooling and private schooling boom. Even before omicron, before all the risks of severe adverse events were known, 60 to 61 percent of parents disapproved of adding these COVID-19 shots to the childhood vaccine schedule."
Ultimately, Malone called for "an overhaul of the whole Department of Health and Human Services enterprise." He also exhorted parents to stand up and "take control back from the state."
