Do not add controversial vaccines to childhood recommendations for school attendance requirements

All the vaccines on the childhood vaccine schedule have stood the test of time and are much better understood by the medical community and the public at large. None of the vaccines for Covid 19 are fully tested for young children and young children are at much lower risk for the disease itself.  For these reasons at least, Virginia should not require a Covid vaccine for attendance to our schools. Parents should keep the right to make the medical decisions for their own children's best interests.
