Just when you thought the world had completely lost its mind, San Francisco lib-libs come along to snap you out of it and prove that there’s always something new up their Coexist long-sleeve shirts. The San Francisco Department of Health announced this week during a Zoom meeting that it will soon implement a vaccine mandate for children to enter public places.
The policy will require children ages 5 and up to show proof of vaccination in order to enter public spaces where adults are currently required to show the same proof.
“That will happen no sooner than about eight weeks after the vaccine is available to kids,” San Francisco Health Officer Dr. Susan Philip announced during the meeting.
San Francisco becomes the first jurisdiction in the world to mandate EUA vaccination for all 5-11 year olds.

This week, the U.S. began shipping out millions of COVID shots for children 5-11 with a plan to begin giving shots to children this week. “We are not waiting on the operations and logistics,” coronavirus coordinator Jeff Zients told the Associated Press.
Santa Clara County (CA) began putting shots into arms for children ages 5-11 on Wednesday.
Once vaccinated, the children will need to show proof of vaccination and wear a mask in many locations even if that person is vaccinated.
“You cannot use a self-attestation of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. You must have proof that you are vaccinated,” San Francisco’s government COVID page states.
