A COVID-19 vaccination mandate for students 12 and older in the Los Angeles Unified School District has been postponed from this fall to next year. The Board of Education voted Tuesday to delay the mandate to no sooner than July 1, 2023, aligning the district with the state. California announced last year that it would require all schoolchildren to receive the coronavirus vaccine, and Gov. Gavin Newsom estimated it would take effect for the start of the 2022-23 school year. But last month the Newsom administration paused the requirement until at least summer 2023 because school administrators worried they would not have enough time to implement the mandate.
