Cardona calls for mandating Covid-19 vaccines for educators
August 13, 2021
Education Secretary Miguel Cardona on Wednesday said he supports mandating the Covid-19 vaccine for teachers and other school staff, as districts across the country prepare to begin another school year shaped by the pandemic.
"I would favor the vaccine being required," Cardona said during a virtual National Press Foundation event, adding that he believes some reluctant adults will change their minds once the FDA fully approves the shots.
Cardona stressed that he believes the Covid-19 vaccine is safe.
