File Attachment:
COVID-19 Vaccine Resolution 2022-07.ada.pdf
Summary: California Governor Gavin Newsom announced October 1, 2021, that California would be the first state in the nation to require all students to be vaccinated. Lodi Unified School District (LUSD) and all other California School districts already struggle to find qualified employees for both certificated and classified positions, and the COVID-19 vaccine requirement is likely to create more open jobs. LUSD supports local control and decision making; and LUSD public schools have operated in-person learning safely since reopening in the fall of 2020 without available vaccines or COVID-19 vaccination mandates for most of that time. The purpose of this agenda item is to request the Board review and give direction regarding a resolution to call state officials to recommend and not require the COVID-19 vaccine for students and staff.
