“At a recent event, one parent joked to me we’re now officially in ‘vaccine season.’ The comment made me laugh, but there’s at least a kernel of truth to it. It’s not unusual for states to require that children receive an array of vaccinations — from polio, diphtheria, and chickenpox to measles, mumps, and meningitis — to be enrolled in a public school system. One vaccine that parents will not find on any state’s required list in 2022 are the Covid-19 shots, which have been a source of great debate in the US and other countries.” (09/19/22)
