The text, California School Vaccination Requirement (McGraw Hill), explains how in order for Californian Staff members to be present in the school buildings, it is required for them to be vaccinated. Starting the 15th of October, teachers (and staff) in CA will be required to be fully vaccinated and if not, they will have to be tested weekly. After announcing this, it was estimated that 90% of all staff and teachers from California, were already fully vaccinated. For students, they have only been mandated to use masks to protect themselves and those around them. With this, the school can be a safe, stable environment.

I agree with having school staff members be vaccinated in order to continue teaching in person and I believe that for those who either religiously or medically cannot get vaccinated, it is fair to have the option to be tested weekly in order to continue teaching. If for whatever other reason there might be staff members who choose not to be vaccinated, I believe they should deny their right to teach (temporarily while the virus is still at its peak) since there is nothing that is holding them back from getting vaccinated; they just want to deny the solutions provided for them. Therefore, it would only be fair to deny the solution of teaching to them too. 

If you were a teacher who was not yet vaccinated, would you prefer to be tested weekly or to just get vaccinated?
