BREAKING: California Gov. Newsom Mandates COVID Vaccine for Children to Attend School

‘This is a decision that should have been decided upon by the legislature, not mandated by the governor’

By Katy Grimes, October 1, 2021 11:25 am

UPDATE below: California Gov. Gavin Newsom just announced a new mandate to require school children to get the COVID-19 vaccine in order to be allowed to attend school, “following full FDA approval.”

Putting this new mandate into perspective, Assemblyman Kevin Kiley replied, “Gavin Newsom just announced a vaccine mandate for K-12 students, days after opposing one for prison guards. California kids made the mistake of not giving millions to his campaigns.”

Kiley also issued a formal statement:

Today Gavin Newsom announced a “first” in the nation vaccine mandate for K-12 students. However, just days ago he actively tried to block a mandate for California corrections officers, whose union contributed $1.75 million to his campaign against the Recall.

In explaining his opposition to the corrections mandate, Newsom’s Administration said it is “working with those who remain unvaccinated with educational resources, access to clinicians and experts to answer questions, and ample access to the vaccine.”

“There is no reason the Governor’s policy of ‘education’ and ‘access’ cannot guide vaccination policy in schools,” Assemblyman Kiley (R-Rocklin) said. “At every turn, this Governor has let his top Special Interest donors dictate pandemic policy. It is an abuse of the public trust without precedent in our state’s history.”

Senator Melissa Melendez weighed in as well: “This is a decision that should have been decided upon by the legislature, not mandated by the governor. It’s also a fine example of what a modern day dictatorship looks like.”

Jen Val Laar at RedState weighed in: “I don’t think Newsom understands that he just really undermined the teachers union power in the state – estimates are that 25% of public school students will leave the system b/c of this mandate. The school choice ballot referendum got a major boost with that announcement.”

Summing up Newsom’s newest mandate was this Tweet: “There is no better spokesman for homeschool than Gavin Newsom.”

It wasn’t that long ago that government officials assured the public that vaccine mandates would never be imposed.

The Globe will update this article  as we learn more.


The governor issued a statement at 11:46AM:

Following the other first-in-the-nation school masking and staff vaccination measures, Governor Newsom announced the COVID-19 vaccine will be required for in-person school attendance—just like vaccines for measles, mumps, rubella and more.

“The state already requires that students are vaccinated against viruses that cause measles, mumps, and rubella – there’s no reason why we wouldn’t do the same for COVID-19. Today’s measure, just like our first-in-the-nation school masking and staff vaccination requirements, is about protecting our children and school staff, and keeping them in the classroom,” said Governor Newsom. “Vaccines work. It’s why California leads the country in preventing school closures and has the lowest case rates. We encourage other states to follow our lead to keep our kids safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19.”

  1. Gov. Newsom along with the other Democrats who completely control California need to be held personally liable for all student deaths and injuries resulting from this vaccine mandate?

    1. I think all the schools and us as parents need to fight to not have this for our kids I think we need to sue the administration and do petition so I don’t happen it should be a parents choice and he needs to be held accountable for his actions he’s gonna end up killing these kids

  2. Each and every one of the tweeters above have said it all so well. And in the meantime, as the state’s school districts BLEED students because of this ridiculous and unnecessary mandate, maybe even the children of those who are in this country illegally as well, the districts will not be receiving Average Daily Attendance money from the state. Or will they screw with the numbers and lie about them, as they are wont to do, to prevent even that from happening?

  3. Gov. Newsom should show us how safe and effective the vaccines are by having his children vaccinated in front of the news media? Of course that will never happen and this mandate doesn’t affect his kids who attend an exclusive private school instead of a public school?

  4. Gov. Newsom announced his vaccine mandate at the San Francisco Unified School District alongside Democrat state Sen. Scott Wiener the gay Jewish lawyer who pushed legislation that provides protection to people who have sex with minors and keeps them off sex offender registry. How sick is that?

  5. Another sad day in California!
    Parents need to do their homework.
    Children are at very low risk for serious Covid19 illness. Look to studies here in the states and in Europe. Look to VAERS. The CDC recognizes those under 18 are at low risk and rarely transmit to teachers. Let’s be honest this mandate is being driven by the CTA , AFT unions.
    Please look up Dr. Peter McCullough, he is well respected cardiologist who warns against the mRNA shot for anyone under the age of 30!

    Do not let them experiment on your children! We do not know the long term side effects!
    This is not a traditional vaccine like the Measles, Mumps and Rubella.
    Use a search engine other than Google and search for vaccine injured testimonials!

    Our children are the most vulnerable and need to be protected from Big Pharma experiments.

  6. I thought it was interesting that Gruesome said in his tweet: “This will go into effect following full FDA approval.” But we know that the vaccine has not yet been FDA-approved, only the Emergency Use Authorization extended, although the powers have tried to imply that the stupid thing HAS been approved.

    So is he just trying to scare and disorient people (again) by lashing out with one of his empty threats? Because he’s mad anybody voted to recall him?

    Actually, this nasty full-on dictatorial mandate seems like it is coming from someone who must know he WOULD have been recalled if he hadn’t deployed all of his dirty tricks and cheating. If that’s true, he is FURIOUS —– and this is his revenge.

    1. Maybe so.
      It may not be revenge but just his sheer need to be in control. A megalomaniac for sure!
      Not to get too” judgy” and superficial but he just does not look well to me, something is off.
      This is not a rational move when you look into the facts and data.

      1. I know what you mean, Cali Girl, about him not looking well. I can’t put my finger on what’s amiss but I don’t think you are being superficial, because if you ask me it’s a spiritual matter. I’ve noticed with members of the so-called “Ruling Class” that they often start to look sort of reptilian or crypt-keeper-ish, in a way that is not related to the natural aging process. It’s as if, over time, their outsides begin to match their insides. Kinda creepy.
        P.S. By the way, I have really enjoyed seeing you pop up over at Press California lately. 🙂

        1. ShowandTell, you nailed it. It is a reflection of his heretical actions. It is apparent he is unwell and unfit for office. He is looking quite reptilian.????
          Experimenting on children is unforgivable.

          *Yes I have been dappling over at Press California, I am a bit of a news junkie☺️
          It’s fun to read your comments too. Do you not love the news about the up and coming children’s author , Gov Gav???? Sure to be a #1 bestseller.

          1. Oh, I know! What a joke. These people and their children’s books. I think Kamala wrote one too. I guess they think being a “children’s author” makes them look caring and sort of innocent. Hah!

          2. We all say the same thing. He looks like what I imagine Satan in the flesh to look like. He is a handsome man yet oddly ugly and evil looking at the same time? Those smug looks he wears proudly is part of it.

      2. Maybe being a dry drunk is catching up with him. Hey, Bush bombed Iraq when he was on the wagon. We know that Gov. Hair Doo has alcohol issues, maybe he’s secretly self-medicating a bit too often these days. On some level he must know how much he is loathed. By millions.

  7. “The state already requires that students are vaccinated against viruses that cause measles, mumps, and rubella – there’s no reason why we wouldn’t do the same for COVID-19. ”

    ^^^ This statement just shows exactly what a STUPID horses-*ss this Governor is – the mRNA clot-shots are a COMPLETELY different mechanism of action than those for measles, mumps and rubella and any parent that’s paying a whiff of attention will yank their kids out of school to prevent the clots, anaphylaxis, Guillen-Barre syndrome, etc etc etc that are being reported EVERYWHERE except by the lapdog compliant mainstream media who keep trotting out the “Covid-19 vaccines are safe” line of BS every five minutes…..

  8. He looks so stupid mandating vaccines that haven’t even been proven safe and effective for children by the FDA. Hey, Look at me, look at me…..see what I can do. Seems so desperate and idiotic. Fear mongering, control freak. Did he have absent parents?

  9. Just posted by Alex Berenson, a former NYT science reporter:

    The question was: how are these vaccines different than other vaccines kids get before going to school

    Alex Berenson
    Oct 1
    I want to get this out fast. Here are three answers:

    1) Mechanism of action: the mRNA vaccines do not look or work like almost all other vaccines, which are far simpler biologically.

    Most vaccines present an inactivated or attenuated viral particle to the immune system so that it can react to the “dead” virus as it would to the live virus. The mRNA and DNA/AAV vaccines instead hijack our own cells and cause them to make a piece of the Sars-Cov-2 virus to jumpstart our immune system.

    It is now clear that this process carries significant risks – and more importantly, does not lead to the breadth or longevity of immune system response as normal infection with Sars-Cov-2.


    “While vaccination gives rise to memory B cells that evolve over a few weeks, natural infection births memory B cells that continue to evolve over several months, producing highly potent antibodies adept at eliminating even viral variants.

    The findings highlight an advantage bestowed by natural infection rather than vaccination.”

    2) Duration of protection: the Covid vaccines protect for only a few months at most; other childhood vaccines, with the exception of the flu vaccine, protect for decades or a lifetime.

    This difference is especially important for children, who might have to take boosters for decades (or at least until we regain our sanity, if we ever do). Further, natural immunity to the original SARS appears to last for decades – we don’t know yet if that is true of SARS-COV-2, but if it is the vaccines are an even worse bet.

    3) Side effect profile: the Covid vaccines have moderate to serious short-term side effects for an enormous number of people who receive them, far more than the flu vaccine or other common childhood vaccines.

    They also cause medically significant heart inflammation in as many as 1 in 3,000 to 1 in 5,000 teenage boys who receive them. Given that Covid itself is little more than a cold for almost all healthy children and teens, the vaccines have a risk-benefit profile that is unacceptable for teenagers, much less children.

    This is why many countries have not recommended them for people under 16. This is the current WHO recommendation for children and adolescents. They have rewritten it under political pressure, but if you read it carefully, you will see that they say children 12-15 “may be offered this vaccine” ONLY if they “are at higher risk of severe COVID-19.” Basically, that means the morbidly obese and kids with severe immune deficiencies, cancer, etc.:

    Vaccines are usually tested in adults first, and only later assessed in children when safety has been proven in adults, because children are still developing and growing. COVID-19 has also been a more serious and dangerous disease among older people. Now that the vaccines have been determined to be safe for adults, they are being studied in children.

    WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) has concluded that the Pfizer/BionTech vaccine is suitable for use by people aged 12 years and above. Children aged between 12 and 15 who are at higher risk of severe COVID-19 [emphasis added] may be offered this vaccine alongside other priority groups for vaccination. Vaccine trials for children are ongoing and WHO will update its recommendations when the evidence or epidemiological situation justifies a change in policy.

    1. Thank you CaliGirl for posting that well written summary. Hits all the points that parents should be given of in order to make an informed decision for their families. It is a shame Newsom is attempting to further segregate children and deny them the education they are entitled too. Not to mention many COVID treatment therapies are being studied and found effective, safe. I’d rather my child who has a high survival rate receive treatment IF they get COVID and develop their own immunity for a lifetime than risk death or severe side effects for life (cardiac damage)from an ineffective vaccine.

      1. Hi Stacy,
        I as a parent of grown children would want the information Alex Berenson has provided.
        I agree with with you, this is shameful to do to children.
        The risk of permanent heart damage should be taken very seriously. Dr. Peter McCullough a renowned cardiologist states myocarditis is permanent. I hope parents take this into consideration.

  10. The booster shot mortality rate and efficacy must be studied pronto. Jumping off cliffs is easy, but are you first to go…….

    As far as kids getting jabs……school may be out!

  11. Myocarditis in otherwise healthy teens. 1st shot depletes immune system 50%, 2nd shot an additional 25%,
    booster shot has 8 strands of HIV to wipe out remaining immune system… either the 2nd shot or booster has 80 foreign materials your body doesn’t recognize. Spike protein load is 270%. When your liver cannot produce enough glutathione to combat the spike protein, the remaining p2 replicates and moves through otherwise smooth veins creating spikes disrupting movement of white blood cells, forcing heart to work harder. Graphene oxide, magnetic, moves throughout body and into brain for control. These are not vaccines, they are mRNA gene therapy. You’re the guinea pig. stopworldcontrol.com (7,000 doctors, 1,000 attys..crimes against humanity)
    Tom Renz atty for Frontline Doctors (see videos) Stew Peters (see doctor videos) Bryan Ardis, Robert Malone inventor of mRNA; Judy Mikovits worked w/Fauci…. they have all warned against the insanity!

  12. Newsom doesn’t believe in capital punishment, but he just signed a death warrant for 129 innocent kids. CDC says the COVID vaccine death rate is one in 47618 as of today. There are 6,163,001 students. Do the math. That’s 129 kids dead. More than that will have permanent disabilities from the vaccine. More people have died from COVID vaccines in the U.S. in less than a year, than all other vaccines combined for the last 30 years.

  13. If you have not already read…. ROCKEFELLER FOUNDATION PAPER 2010~”LOCK-STEP” you’re living it!
    2017 Fauci presentation “This President (Trump) Will Have A Surprise Pandemic”
    Ironically, there is a cartoon from the ’30’s with masks and vaccine production…. the Cabal is very old

  14. This disease is 99.99+% survivable by school age children! Take your kids out of school if necessary. This is a life or death struggle with the globalists who want to depopulate the earth. The vaccine is deadly and the reported negative side effects are greatly suppressed, the numbers are much higher. One doctor said they are 100x as high as what is officially reported.

  15. “India govt declares most populated state officially COVID free after widespread use of Ivermectin” oann.com

    Show us the science. This is about $$$ power control, not science. It ends when you say it ends.

  16. There are reports that a small percentage of people die within 14 days of taking the COVID shot which is not a vaccine but rather an experimental remedy. The Governor by issuing this mandate is suggesting that this “vaccine”should be on the same par as the measles vaccine. The problem with that reasoning is that measles shots have a decades long understanding by the medical community while there are no long term studies on any level with this new COVID remedy, this is a DANGEROUS gamble by Newsom.
    Any one-size-fits-all approach simply doesn’t work where medications are concerned for a variety of reasons, different blood types, gender, etc.. My great fear is children dying from being forced to taking these shot. There will most likely be a certain percentage, even if it’s a small percentage, of children who have a fatal reaction once injected. If I’m right and I pray I’m not, how many deaths will be considered “acceptable”? Other than California Globe, will the local and state media report on these deaths? Probably not. Even if they do, will the media blame Gavin Newsom for forcing this the states children? Absolutely not, they will continue to protect this Governor no matter what and instead point the finger of blame towards the medical manufacturers of these “vaccines” like Phizer or Maderna.

  17. This is all so unnecessary. Children aren’t at risk for covid. My early teen recently tested positive for covid. A family member got diagnosed and because my daughter had cold symptoms (we actually suspected a sinus infection) we got her tested. We were floored when the test came back positive! It took 8…yes 8…days to get her test results back and in the meantime my elderly parents stayed with us (their choice.) Neither
    of them got covid, nor myself or my other child. We had also dined with friends prior to testing and my kids had seen their friends. NO one else contracted covid. I always suspected this virus was hyped up for an agenda, now I know that to be true.

    And just how will they keep track of all the boosters needed? Will parents have to send in proof of vaxx every 3 months? 6? Every time the fake cdc or fda recommend one? California leads the nation in stupidity with narcissistic dictator newscum at the helm.
    No poison jabs for us. We already do independent study so my daughter might be exempt for now, but it would take very little effort to make the transition to all homeschool. Take your poison jab and shove it, newsollini!

  18. I have tried without success to find out how the current vaccines for school aged children were mandated, was it by the legislature, or the various California health departments.
    This is Newsom’s modis operandi, he loves being first as well as being a dictator, remember his first in the nation gay marriage when he was mayor his death penalty moratorium after the people voted to speed up the process?
    Hoping Kevin Kiley and the like sue Newsom as they have done in the past.
