I mean, I’m not getting into the local issues, only to talk about general principles, that people need to realize that having a vaccine requirement for schools is not a new, novel thing that is very peculiar or specific to COVID-19. We’ve been doing this for decades.”

Vaccine Mandate For Students Not A New Thing In The US, Says Dr. Anthony Fauci

Vaccine mandates for students have been going on for many years in the US. Parents cannot enroll their students to school if their child is not vaccinated against certain diseases like measles, rubella, etc. Fauci also pointed out the same and said, “My own children could not have gone to school if they had not gotten vaccinated with the measles, mumps, and rubella. So, when we see pushback on that, it’s as if this never happened before. It’s actually ongoing with other vaccines. So, let’s do it with a virus that’s very, very serious.”
