Gov. Mills Won’t Rule Out Future COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate for Schools


It was a small moment with big implications.

Last night during the second major gubernatorial debate, Maine Gov. Janet Mills said that she does not support imposing a vaccine mandate on Maine school children “at this time.”

Mills did not elaborate, nor did the moderator ask her too. But the implication is clear: Mills is leaving the door open to impose vaccine mandates on Maine schools after Election Day.

The comment follows last week’s vote by Maine CDC Director Nirav Shah in support of adding the controversial COVID-19 shots to the federal schedule of vaccinations. Shah, who is a member of the federal CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), joined the other 14 members of that committee in recommending the mRNA COVID-19 shots produced by Pfizer, Moderna, and other major pharmaceutical companies for all American children and adolescents.
