Lawmakers are discussing a bill that would keep schools from requiring COVID-19 vaccines for students
Chattanooga, TN – According to the statement, the bill is in the House Education K-12 Subcommittee. The bill would stop schools from potentially forcing or pressuring their students to get the shot.
There are no vaccines approved for kids, but there are trials underway right now.
According to the statement, the schools wouldn’t be able to require kids to get vaccinated, their parents to get the kids immunized or require a vaccine to attend school.
If this bill passes, a school can face a civil penalty for each violation and it encourages parents and students to file a civil suit against a school or their local education agency.
