Tucker Carlson misleads on CDC, vaccine mandates for schoolchildren

Published on 21/10/2022 at 23:28

Fox News host Tucker Carlson claims a decision from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will make the Covid-19 vaccine mandatory for all schoolchildren. This is misleading; the public health agency cannot declare a national vaccination mandate for schools, as requirements are determined locally and can vary from state to state.
