COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

Is there a student vaccine mandate?

On Tuesday, May 24, the Board of Education approved an amendment to postpone the District’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for students and align with the State to implement the mandate no sooner than July 2023.

This means there will be no requirement for COVID-19 vaccination for any student group to participate in summer school, extracurricular programs (including athletics), or in-person instruction during the 2022-2023 school year.

San Diego Unified expects that by postponing the implementation of the student vaccine mandate, additional age groups will receive full FDA approval, allowing the mandate to apply to a broader school-wide age range when implemented. We are also hopeful that newer versions of the vaccine may become available, providing better protection against current strains of the virus.

What is the vaccine requirement for staff?

On September 28, 2021 the Board of Education Trustees voted unanimously to require all District employees, partners, contractors and other adults who work directly with students and district employees on district property to be fully-vaccinated on or before December 20, 2021. Details of this Board presentation can be found here. Fully vaccinated means having received the two-dose series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Booster shots are not required, but are highly recommended.

The health and safety of our students and employees is paramount, therefore, this mandate is a condition of employment for employees; the District may take disciplinary action, up to and including termination for employees who do not comply with this mandate.

New employees will also be required to show proof of vaccination.
