A school in Hawaii announced an upcoming vaccine drive for elementary school students, but told parents they’re not welcome.
The bizarre request appeared in a letter to parents from the Kalihi Kai elementary school in Honolulu.
In the letter, the school says they’re scheduling two different vaccine clinics, as the FDA was poised to approve the experimental jab for youngsters.
“In preparation for FDA approval for COVID-19 vaccinations for children ages 5-11, KKS is planning to hold a student only COVID-19 vaccination clinic,” the letter reads.
“Tentatively, the vaccination clinic will be on November 10 and December 1, as the Pfizer vaccine requires two doses. The clinic will take place on campus during the school day,” the letter states, before adding, “Parents WILL NOT be allowed on campus during the clinic.”
Instead, the school says “staff will be on-hand to comfort and monitor your child.”
The outrageous letter caused a stir online, with one person commenting on Facebook, “Wow as a teacher of 20 years I have never heard of such a thing. Doesn’t seem legal.”
The school’s “student only” vaccine drive comes as San Francisco became the first city in the world to mandate Covid-19 injections for children, with the city’s vaccine passport system now being equally applied to children ages 5 to 11 and required to enter restaurants and other venues.
The move is similar to one made in New South Wales, Australia, earlier this year, where the city health department bizarrely called on children to attend a massive vaccine drive without parental supervision.
“Maybe mum and dad can drop you. Your mum or dad, or one of your family drop you. Make sure they stay outside the arena, because we don’t want too many people obviously milling around inside the arena,” said New South Wales Minister for Health and Medical Research Brad Hazzard. “Make some arrangements for – after you’ve got your access to that golden opportunity of the vaccination – to wait outside for you.”
