Education Secretary Supports Vaccine Mandates

He asks states to “make sure it happens.”

Miguel Cardona, Secretary of Education, voiced his support for mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for eligible schoolchildren saying the FDA’s full approval of inoculations for certain adolescents should clear the way for state officials to implement plans to begin vaccinations.

“Not only do I support it, but I’m encouraging states to come up with a plan to make sure it happens,” he said, during a multi-state tour of schools and childcare facilities. “I would like governors who hold those decisions to make those decisions now that [vaccines] are FDA approved.”

The education secretary added, “Governors should work with their school officials and with their health officials to roll-out requirements, especially in areas that are high-spread and where students might be at risk for going back to remote learning or hybrid learning as a result of the spread of COVID-19.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for governors and schools officials regarding vaccine mandates for schoolchildren.
  • For Secretary Cardona to seek the Lord’s direction as he issues recommendations and promotes policies.
  • For students who are still recovering from the disruption to their education due to the pandemic.
