The experimental COVID shot is likely to be added to the Minnesota children education immunization schedule following the CDC's approval of the drug for the 2023 adult and children immunization schedule. Children are the least likely to be hospitalized or have severe cases from COVID. But myocarditis and other adverse effects are popping up in the vaccinated population, which is a valid reason for parents to not want to subject their children to the experimental jab.
According to the Minnesota Department of Health, the experimental COVID shot is currently "recommended" but not "required."
However, Minnesota State law allows the Department of Health Commissioner to "adopt modifications to the immunization requirements" (121A.15, Subdivision 12). Consultation and a consideration of costs is required before the Commissioner can modify the immunization schedule, but as we've seen under COVID, short cuts are frequently taken by public health officials.
The threat is real! If Governor Walz gets a second term and he keeps Jan Malcolm in place, it's highly likely COVID jabs will become a requirement for your children to attend school.
