Kansas AG Challenges Federal Vaccine Mandate for Head Start

MetrosourceDecember 22, 2021

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is challenging the new federal vaccine mandate for Head Start programs.

KWCH reports that Schmidt filed a lawsuit yesterday challenging the mandate. Schmidt says that the mandate will place a greater strain on the availability of childcare programs for low-income Kansas families.

The mandate calls for Head Start staff and volunteers who come into contact with students to receive COVID-19 vaccinations by January 31st.
