The Los Angeles School District has cancelled the implementation of its vaccine mandate after up to 30,000 students refused to comply.

The district threw in the towel — at least for now — because of the mass non-compliance. The school was supposed to implement its 100 percent vax mandate this month. But now that has been canceled.

“Los Angeles had planned to shift students who remained unvaccinated by Jan. 10 into its online school, City of Angels. Many worried about its ability to accommodate tens of thousands of new students at the start of the next semester and the disruption it would cause for staff and children,” according to USA Today.

Politico added, “Politico reports, “other U.S. districts in blue states are scaling back previous student mandate ideas, too. School leaders in Portland, Ore., tabled discussion this fall amid vigorous pushback, while New York and Chicago have taken a wait-and-see approach. Not only are they wary of mandate critics, but they also question whether they should impose a requirement before the Food and Drug Administration fully approves vaccines for their students — a threshold Los Angeles Unified didn’t wait for.”

The District added that it is now trying to “identify” which students are least likely to get vaxed.

“Districts elsewhere have weighed which students are most likely to be unvaccinated if a mandate is enforced, and the drawbacks of having those students learn under remote instruction,” Politico added.

District officials didn’t reveal what sort of metrics they are looking to base their plans on.
