WASHINGTON – Many parents are wondering if their kids will have to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination to attend school in the fall. For several states, that answer is no.

At least seven states have enacted legislation that specifically forbids public schools from requiring vaccinations. Most states have introduced general legislation that limits requiring people to demonstrate COVID.







In many instances, if those laws pass, they will likely apply to schools as well. The different approaches taken by states are leaving many parents with questions.

For example, in most cases where COVID vaccinations cannot be required, vaccines for diseases like measles and polio are still mandated.







The Centers for Disease Control is not taking a solid stance on vaccine requirements in schools. The agency only urges schools to promote vaccination.
