The Los Angeles school district is expected to become the first across the United States to mandate Covid-19 vaccines for students attending in-person classes and who are 12 years or older.

As the nation’s second-largest school district with over 600,000 students, Los Angeles’ vaccine mandate might be leading by example for other districts to follow. The LA district’s Board of Education will meet Thursday afternoon and is expected to pass the measure with vast support.

Students are expected to have their first dose by November 21st and their second by December 19th to begin the 2022 semester. Students turning 12 after those dates have 30 days after their birthday to get their first dose. That said, students who take part in face-to-face extracurriculars will require both doses by the end of October.

The district also offers independent online study for those who have chosen to avoid in-person learning, but only a small fraction of the population has chosen to do so.

Los Angeles Unified School District has been incredibly successful with implementing vaccine clinics in schools while also acting as the nation’s most extensive school testing program, which screens all students and staff on a weekly basis.

On-campus and indoors/outdoors, students and staff must wear masks and be vaccinated, with exceptions for severe medical conditions and prominent religious beliefs.
