The Pennsylvania state Senate Republicans on Monday adopted legislation prohibiting a COVID-19 vaccination mandate for K–12 kids in order to attend school.

Sen. Michele Brooks’ Senate Bill 937 was approved 28–21 on a party-line vote and now proceeds to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

“No child shall be required to be inoculated with the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, known as COVID-19, as a condition of compliance with 28 Pa. Code 23.83 (related to vaccination requirements).”

It effectively implies schools can’t make youngsters acquire a COVID-19 vaccination to attend class.

To attend school in Pennsylvania, children must be inoculated against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, and chickenpox. For measles, mumps, and rubella, proof of immunity is accepted.

The state allows medical, religious, and philosophical exemptions for school-age children.

Senate Law 937 is expected to be vetoed by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, a Democrat who opposes the bill and has no intentions to execute it.

“The government has no intentions to require immunizations for K–12 schools,” Wolf’s office stated in a statement.

The governor also said Republicans should encourage their people to acquire COVID-19 vaccines.

All Pennsylvanians aged 5 and older are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, and Wolf has encouraged everyone to be vaccinated and obtain booster doses to curb the disease’s spread.

“Safety and peace of mind is the finest present you can give yourself, your family, and your community this holiday season,” Wolf said in November at Berks Community Health Center’s Rockland facility, where he promoted a walk-in COVID-19 immunization clinic.

Our capacity to protect Pennsylvanians from this devastating illness is improving, Wolf added. In the battle against this virus, the approval of the pediatric vaccination is crucial. I urge all eligible Pennsylvanians, particularly parents and guardians, to be vaccinated before the holidays.

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices advises that everyone aged 5 and older be vaccinated against coronavirus using FDA-approved vaccines (FDA).

Brooks said that other school-mandated immunizations weren’t permitted under the FDA’s “emergency use authorisation.”

Another backer, Sen. Doug Mastriano, cited the state’s mortality toll from COVID-19, which he compared to seasonal flu, avian flu, and swine flu.

Vaccination against COVID-19 is not presently required to attend school, but Democrats claim that it can save lives.
