The San Diego Unified School Board voted unanimously on Tuesday to require eligible students and staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Under the district’s “Vaccination Roadmap,” students ages 16 and older must receive their first dose of the vaccine before November 29 and their second dose on or before December 20 as a condition for attending in-person classes, according to Fox 5 San Diego.

Board President Richard Barrera said that timeline “allows for full immunity by the time students return from winter break in January.”

“It could not be more clear that this is the right move for us to take tonight,” Barrera said.

The plan then expands to include students 12 and older and will eventually include ages 5 and older if the vaccine is approved by the FDA for that age group.

Students who are not vaccinated by the deadline will be forced to attend independent study programs beginning in January and will be excluded from extracurricular activities.
