Safe States for Children: List of States That Won’t Comply w/ CDC to Mandate COVID Jabs for School

February 10, 2023

By Jim Hoft | The Gateway Pundit


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officially added the ‘unsafe and ineffective’ COVID-19 vaccine to the recommended childhood immunization schedule for 2023.


COVID-19 was responsible for only 1,460 deaths from individuals 0-17 years of age from January 1, 2020 to February 1, 2023, according to Statista.com. This accounts for 0.1% of ALL COVID deaths in the United States.


It’s worth noting that 0-17 is a sample size double the other groups, which are spread out among 9-year increments.


📈 See the graph below:


The immunization schedules are updated annually in the late fall and are used as a guideline by states for school entry requirements and by physicians, and healthcare providers.


State or local authorities frequently consider the CDC’s schedule when establishing their school admission requirements.


The CDC claimed that adding the COVID vaccine to the list of immunization schedules does not mean it will be mandatory for school entry.


“CDC only makes recommendations for use of vaccines, while school-entry vaccination requirements are determined by state or local jurisdictions,” the agency said in a statement during the ACIP immunization schedule vote.

The CDC approved to add COVID vaccine to the routine immunization schedule. Again: the ones who voted to force your children to be the subject of this experiment were not themselves voted into their position by the People of the United States.


There are still no long-term side effect studies. There is no FDA-approved COVID vaccine available in the United States. The most recent vaccine booster was tested on just 8 mice. Below is the most recent data collected by VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System:

In October 2022, following the news that the CDC panels voted to include COVID-19 in the childhood immunization schedule, The Gateway Pundit made a list of Republican governors who publicly stated that they would not comply with CDC mandates and would not force children in their states to take the experimental COVID vaccine.
