Schools not requiring COVID vaccine

LA Catholic schools not requiring student COVID-19 vaccinations

Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles will not require COVID-19 vaccinations for students, despite the recent federal emergency authorization of the Pfizer vaccine for children.

In a Nov. 5 email sent to schools and parents, Catholic Schools Superintendent Paul Escala explained his department has not received an order from local health authorities requiring the vaccine.
