|Petition Title||Vaccination Requirements for School Employees and Students|
|Date Filed||9/1/2021 [Transmittal Sheet]|
|Petitioner||Kristen M. Calleja|
I am writing to voice my request and sincere hope that the board will mandate vaccines for all school employees, with only medical exemptions allowed. Vaccines are already required for all state employees. In addition, vaccines should be required for all students for whom the vaccine has been fully approved, just as many other vaccines are mandated.
Upon publication of the Notice of Petition in the Virginia Register of Regulations, and upon completion of the 21-day public comment period, VDH will make a determination - within 90 days of the close of the public comment period - as to whether or not to grant the petition.
|Comment Period||Will begin 9/27/2021 and end on 10/17/2021|
