(LifeSiteNews) — Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that children who are not injected for COVID-19 will not be given a remote learning option this school year.
After D.C.’s Office of the State Superintendent of Education announced that children must be jabbed for COVID-19 to attend school for the 2022-2023 year, Bowser said during a press briefing, “We’re not offering remote learning for children, and families will need to comply with what is necessary to come to school,” The Daily Signal reported.
“This is cruel,” the House Oversight Committee Republicans’ Twitter account weighed in, noting that students have already “dealt with the irreparable harm of school closures and remote learning.
“Washington DC is either going to wind up with a lot of ‘mysteriously ill’ teens or a homeschooling boom,” remarked Jo Lentz on Twitter.
In a July 19 press release, the Office of the State Superintendent of Education informed parents that in order to attend school, children must receive “the primary COVID-19 vaccine series,” meaning the first two shots of the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA injection, or a single Johnson & Johnson COVID shot, unless they are exempted.
With the FDA's decision to officially approve the Pfizer COVID jab, calls to vaccinate schoolchildren and more university students will become louder and more insistent.
But, America's children and young people must be protected from unknown future side-effects of these drugs, and parents' rights must be respected!
Please SIGN this urgent petition which demands that COVID vaccine mandates for schools and universities be prohibited in every U.S. state.
This petition will be sent to the leaders of every state legislature and to every governor in the United States, urging them to pass emergency legislation banning vaccine mandates for primary, secondary and university students.
Students simply have the right to be educated without being forced to violate deeply held principles and their own bodily integrity!
But, unfortunately, some private schools, like the Jesuit-run Brophy College Prep School in Phoenix, Arizona, have already mandated the COVID vaccine for their students, in spite of massive parental opposition. If parents or students reject the vaccine, students face intrusive weekly testing and exclusion from extra-curricular activities.
Also, more and more universities have actually started to disenroll unvaccinated students. But, even where that is not happening, not taking the vaccine often subjects students to masking, extra testing and additional administrative obstacles.
And now, with the Pfizer jab approval, Joe Biden's Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy, is threatening more mandates.
While it is true that the FDA approval for the Pfizer jab only pertains to those over 16 years of age, the pharmaceutical industry and some state actors have been pushing to get approval for pre-teens!
So, it stands to reason that the Federal government will try to impose vaccines on schools, for those 16 and over, as well as on all university students. But, eventually, such mandates could even apply to younger and younger schoolchildren.
That's why state legislatures and governors must fight back against any attempt to coerce school students to take a COVID vaccine against their will!
Science and logic should dictate public health policy. And both say that mandatory vaccination for children and university students is not only unnecessary, but very likely dangerous for the future health of America's youth.
The CDC reports that the rates of death, injury, and hospitalization are very, very low for children and adolescents and that COVID transmission in schools, both from student to staff and between students, is also very low.
And a European CDC study concluded that "no evidence has been found to suggest that children or educational settings are primary drivers of COVID transmission."
So, right now, we know that schoolchildren are at very low risk of becoming very ill as a result of COVID, or of even transmitting the virus.
But, we don't know how a hastily-prepared, unstudied vaccine will affect the health of millions of America's youth in the future.
Gambling with their future, and the future of our nation, should not even be entertained for one second!
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition urging state legislatures to ban COVID vaccine mandates for schools and universities - both public and private. Urge them to respect parents' rights, informed consent and bodily integrity.

The press release does not provide information on what kind of exemptions will be considered.
The students are specifically directed to at least start receiving the vaccine series by Sept. 16, 2022, and they “must have up-to-date immunization certification on file with the school within the first 20 school days” or they will be barred from school and school activities.
The mandate extends to all D.C. schools, including private, parochial, and independent.
According to an August 25 press release, “all students and staff” must also present “proof of a negative COVID-19 test result before the start of the 2022-2023 school year.”
The mandate is part of the implementation of a COVID-19 vaccination law passed in D.C. last year. The law required all eligible teachers and students to receive the experimental vaccines.
The District of Columbia has implemented some of the harshest COVID jab mandate policies in the U.S., having refused to grant a religious exemption even to physician-surgeon and retired U.S. Army colonel Sister Dierdre Byrne, who thereafter sued and was only then granted an accommodation.
On Friday, a D.C. judge ruled that Bowser’s COVID jab mandate for D.C. government employees is unlawful, after the D.C. Police Union sued.
On July 8, the FDA fully approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children 12 to 15 years old, despite evidence showing the vaccine is more dangerous to children than the virus.
A study from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine found a “mortality rate of zero among children without a pre-existing medical condition,” leading numerous experts to conclude that the benefits of injecting children against COVID-19 do not outweigh the risks.
An extraordinarily high frequency of myopericarditis (refers to inflammation of the heart muscle itself, and/or its suspending sack) has been reported in youth after injection against COVID-19. For example, a recent study found that about one in three Thai adolescents who received Pfizer’s mRNA shot — 29.24 percent, to be precise — suffered heart pathologies after “vaccination.”
Dr. Peter McCullough, MD, former professor of medicine at Texas A&M University Health Sciences Center, has called for an “unbreakable resistance” against children receiving the jab, citing numerous studies that show the “chance of myocarditis, and hospitalization with myocarditis, for one of these children who is going to be forced into vaccination … is greater than being hospitalized for COVID-19.”
