Thousands of teachers still unvaccinated in Northern California

The number of teachers who are vaccinated varies widely among Northern California districts, ranging from 98% in San Rafael to about 77% in Manteca, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Some school districts, such as Los Angeles Unified, require all teachers to be vaccinated. However, the state of California allows teachers to remain unvaccinated, as long as they have weekly Covid-19 testing.

According to the Chronicle, about 23% of district workers in Manteca and 16% of district workers in Tracy are unvaccinated, compared with 3% in San Francisco Unified, 5% in Fremont Unified and Oakland Unified and 2% in San Rafael.

The governor’s office declined to explain to the paper why Newsom has not yet required adults in schools to get vaccinated.
