Will Oakland Require COVID-19 Vaccinations for Public School Students?
Oakland Unifiedâs Board of Education is considering a proposal that would require all students 12 and older to get vaccinated against COVID-19.Â Some say itâs a necessary step to make schools safer, while others worry that it will create another barrier to in-person learning.
The resolution could be voted on as early as tonight, and if passed, OUSD would become the first district in Northern California to mandate vaccines for students.
