Governor Phil Scott doesn’t support the vaccines under Emergency Use Authorization for mandatory use in schools.
At today’s press conference, Gov. Scott was asked by Vermont Daily Chronicle: “Is it ever appropriate for a vaccine under Emergency Use Authorization to be considered for mandatory requirement for public school enrollment?”
Scott replied: “Not as far as I’m concerned,” and then asked Health Commissioner Mark Levine to respond further. Levine said that “most of us would feel assured” by full FDA approval of a mandatory school vaccine.
Levine and Agency of Education Secretary Dan French may discuss the subject of public school vaccination at length tomorrow afternoon. The schedule for the Senate Education Committee for tomorrow has both men appearing at 3 pm to discuss “mandatory vaccination for schools.”
