California to delay COVID-19 vaccine mandate for students
“A child receives the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at a pediatric vaccine center for children ages 5 to 11 in Santa Ana, Calif., Nov. 9, 2021. California ended up being the first state in the country to move forward on mandating COVID-19 vaccines for school children in October, when Gov. Gavin Newsom announced the state will need the vaccine for all school children ages 12-17 once the FDA grants complete approval. The FDA has actually granted full approval for Pfizers COVID-19 vaccine for those ages 16 and up, and for Modernas vaccine for those ages 18 and up.Pfizer has requested to broaden its approval to include those ages 12 to 15.
