New York May Soon Require Covid Vax for All Schoolchildren

On the Sidewalks of New York is a weekly feature at Human Events wherein Jacqueline Toboroff, a native New Yorker, will share her observations and candid commentary on the goings-on in our nation’s largest city. Wherever you live, and whatever you feel, there is no escaping the fact that New York City matters.

New York parents, it should come as no surprise that legislation is currently before the Assembly and in committee requiring the COVID “vaccine” to be forced onto all children in schools. The first hint this was in the works was during the Hochul / Zeldin debate prior to the November 2, gubernatorial election. Moderator Susan Arbetter said, “Will you follow the CDC's recommendation to add COVID vaccines to children’s vaccine schedules?”  Hochul was vague. Arbetter pressed: “So would you mandate a COVID vaccine for children, yes or no?”

Hochul responded, “It’s something that comes down the legislature anyhow. The legislature makes the determination and consultation with health experts for next year’s school year.”

Welcome to 2023 and the legislature. On January 23, Assembly Bill A2178 was introduced. The bill would require immunization against COVID-19 for schoolchildren. It is sponsored by Democrat State Assemblymember Dinowitz. It “authorizes the commissioner of health to develop and supervise the execution of a program of immunization against COVID-19 for purposes of state aid to schools; requires immunization against COVID-19 for attendance at school.”

The part about “purposes of state aid to schools” is important.  There’s tons of money in play, both that America has spent and committed on the COVID “vaccine” and this is a warning to schools. They better comply if they want the state’s financial aid.

The federal government has spent over $30 billion on COVID “vaccines” as well as boosters, incentivizing their development and guaranteeing a market.

Fierce Pharma reports:
“Drugmakers who seized the opportunity to develop vaccines against the coronavirus are reaping massive revenues. In its annual forecast for global drug spending, the IQVIA Institute for Human Data Science put the figure at $157 billion through 2025. IQVIA projects global spending on medicines to reach $1.6 trillion by 2025, an increase from $1.25 trillion in 2019. The $1.6 trillion figure does not include spending on coronavirus vaccines.

To date in New York, the only kids mandated to get the COVID “vaccine” were private school kids. It was classist, unscientific, and unjust. As soon as the “vaccine” became available, minus any concern for side effects, parental consent, or even FDA approval (that little thing), private school parents were faced with three options; relocate to a different state, enter the failed public school educational complex, or homeschool. If they remained in private and opted not to “vaccinate,” they needed either a doctor's note or a religious exemption. Both were tremendously difficult to come by and, if ascertained, ensured the student recipients were half citizens, unable to partake in school sports, and school clubs, and forced to do incessant COVID testing that ate away at parents’ resources. It was done to fatigue the parents into capitulating.

The segregation and unscientific division of children based on public or private school barely received a blip from both the mainstream media and public school parents. Should Assembly Bill A2178 pass, expect to hear a thunderous roar; from everyone other than the private school parents who had no one to come to their defense two years ago.

As per Assembly Bill A2178, “The term ‘school’ means and includes any public, private or parochial child caring center, day nursery, day care agency, nursery school, kindergarten, elementary, intermediate or secondary school. The term "child" shall mean and include any person between the ages of two months and eighteen years.”

To the parents that were silent when the older and other kids were in danger, your silence has come to roost.

In pure Communist fashion, the Democrat sponsors of this Bill in one party Democrat rule New York will report the child’s parent or legal guardian for failing to follow the rules. As per the Bill, “Every person in parental relation to a child in this state shall have administered to such child an adequate dose or doses of an immunizing agent against COVID-19, which meets the standards approved by the United States public health service for such biological products, and which is approved by the department under such conditions as may be specified by the public health AND HEALTH PLANNING council.”

As we near February 2023, every person under the sun that isn’t a science denier knows, the COVID “vaccine” does nothing to stop the transmission of COVID.  We also know that children are at virtually zero risk from COVID but are at risk for dangerous and sometimes deadly side effects from the “vaccine” and booster. 

The only person who either still doesn’t know or pretends not to is Hochul. Going back to the debate, she told Zeldin, “You’ve been an election denier, a climate change denier. You and Donald Trump were the masterful COVID deniers. We are dealing with a real crisis, and the more people that get vaccinated, get those shots in arms. I would do it all over again, " she says, regarding mask and vaccine mandates and firing essential workers.

Around the same time Assembly Bill A2178 was introduced, Hochul stated in a video, which has now gone viral, that she won’t rehire the fired unvaccinated healthcare workers or hire new ones that are unvaccinated. Her excuse; “I don’t think the answer is to have someone who comes in sick to be exposed to someone with the coronavirus.” One must conclude the reason she is unwilling to follow the science is because of the grip Big Pharma has on the government and the media.

Project Veritas has just released a video exposing a wacko at Pfizer bragging about “mutating” the COVID virus for new vaccines. The Pfizer worker said, “Don’t tell anyone this…you know how the virus keeps mutating? Well, one of the things we’re exploring is, why don’t we just mutate it ourselves so we can create, develop new vaccines.” Translation, there is a financial benefit to creating viruses, creating vaccines, and forcing the public to suffer.

If you do one thing today, please click this link and fill out the very short questionnaire stating your opposition to Assembly Bill A2178.

If you have time to do a second thing, please forward this article to other parents. Encourage them to write or call their Assembly person demanding rejection of this Bill.  We’ve fought off these science deniers before, New Yorkers. After two long years, we got them to lift the mask mandates. We even caused a panicked Hochul to stumble her way through a “yes” or “no” question during the debate before the election on this very topic. Let’s turn the heat up again, realizing, with a groundswell of parents refusing to stay silent, we do impact policy and effectuate change.
