>>Department Of Education Not Requiring COVID-19 Vaccines For Schools
(Harrisburg, PA) -- The Pennsylvania Department of Education is not planning on making the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory for students or school staff. Officials say the discretions around the vaccinations rest with the Department of Health, and it is not their intention to require a vaccine but to leave that to the local discretion. This comes after the FDA gave emergency authorization for the use of the Pfizer vaccine for kids aged 12 to 15. The CDC also endorsed its use of the vaccine for this age group yesterday.
