After the ACIP Committee voted 15 to 0 in favor of approving the COVID shot for children, 22 states quickly expressed their disapproval by outlawing COVID vax mandates or plans to bar such mandates.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds: “Under my watch, there will be no COVID vaccine mandates for kids – period. In fact, we signed a law that prevents it. It’s the parents’ decision, not the government’s.”
Montana Governor Greg Gianforte had to say: “I trust parents to raise their kids and do what’s best for their kid’s health. On my watch, the State of Montana will not mandate the COVID-19 vaccine.”
