Mandatory Vaccines Announced In LA County Following Newsom Recall Win

The number of pricks in Los Angeles are set to see an increase after the County declared that proof of vaccination will be mandatory for indoor establishments and outdoor events featuring hundreds of people.

Announced after Gov. Gavin Newsom's recall election win on Tuesday night, Los Angeles County will be tightening current vaccine-related restrictions on citizens by adopting New York City and New Orleans' approach toward improving vaccination numbers.

According to Fox 11 News, "The order will also require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test for outdoor mega-events, including Dodgers, Rams and Chargers games, County Public Health Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer told the Board of Supervisors Wednesday."

With an indefinite mask mandate already discouraging citizens in Los Angeles County that believe in the efficacy of vaccination and natural immunity, the uncompromising stronghold on citizens' lifestyles by the Blue state's leadership appears to be in its early stages, following the latest mandate.

Tuesday's ill-fated recall vote to oust Gov. Gavin Newsom from office appears to have given the California Dems a confidence in reinstating restrictions, contrary to rising complaints and protests in the Golden State. Close to 54 percent of California has been fully vaccinated.

OutKick's Clay Travis spoke on the updated mandates and how timing of the new rule is a giveaway of Newsom's strategy with not wanting to drive away recall opponents — with a large segment being opposed to California's inane COVID restrictions.
