At last night’s East Longmeadow school committee meeting, I spoke about DESE’s recent guidance for vaccinating children 5 to 11 years old. (1) It is not the role of schools to “promote and administer COVID vaccination” as DESE suggests. (2) I am extremely uncomfortable with the proposal to set up vaccination clinics in elementary schools. (3) It’s wrong to ban unvaccinated students from school sports. Our kids have lost enough over the past year and a half.
