BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Following the state’s announcement of the first COVID-19 vaccine mandate for schoolchildren, Kern County Superintendent of Schools said it supports measures public health experts say are necessary.

The vaccine will join other immunizations that have been required for decades for community safety, Superintendent of Schools said in a tweet.

Gov. Gavin Newsom said Friday he hopes to have all seventh-through-12th graders vaccinated by next fall.
