California students in public and private schools will soon be required to receive a coronavirus vaccine, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Friday – a move that marks the first K-12 vaccine mandate in the U.S.

“There’s still a struggle to get to where we need to be,” the Democratic governor said, speaking from a middle school in San Francisco. “And that means we need to do more, and we need to do better.”

The requirement would cover students in grades seven through 12, but it would not take effect until one semester after the Food and Drug Administration grants full approval to that age group.

As it stands, the Food and Drug Administration has only granted full approval to children 16 and up. Children aged 12 to 15 are eligible for the vaccine through the FDA’s emergency use authorization – though public health experts expect the FDA to provide full approval for children 12 and up as early as next month, meaning the governor’s order to take effect as soon as January 2022.
