The ‘dubious’ CDC vaccine debate continues
A few days ago, a federal judge ruled against the Obama administration, allowing the administration to use a controversial new vaccine to prevent another pandemic.
But even though the ruling was unanimous, it is now unclear whether the vaccine will get into classrooms and classrooms will be able to use it.
The judge, however, said the administration has to show it has the scientific evidence to prove it will work in a classroom setting.
The administration has argued that it can prove the vaccine is safe in the classroom and then use it as a preventative measure, but the judge did not rule on that part of the case.
The Obama administration has said the new vaccine is still in testing, but there is no way to know if it will make it into classrooms in time for the start of the school year.
A new federal law has been enacted that requires school districts to vaccinate students.
The court did not weigh in on whether the new law will apply to the new vaccines, but if it does, it could mean the administration can still use the old vaccine for its own reasons, including to vaccinating teachers and students.
It could also mean the CDC will continue to use the older vaccine.
The Trump administration has threatened to stop the administration from using the old vaccines, though the administration will have to decide whether to continue using the older vaccines to protect against another pandemics.
