(LOS ANGELES) — The Los Angeles Unified School District student vaccination mandate expanded beyond the district after California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that all students aged 12 and above will be required to be vaccinated by next fall.

All students in grades 7-12 are expected to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 come this fall semester. This announcement from the state’s governor is similar to the requirement LAUSD had for students within the district. Mark Lewis, a faculty member within the Redondo Beach Unified School District, told The Click that he supports the governor’s mandate and feels safer going to work with this mandate in place.

This podcast contains music from Blue Dot Session and audio from LAUSD board members gathered by the Associated Press.

Los Angeles City Council To Phase Out Oil Drilling

The Los Angeles City Council unanimously voted to ban the drilling of new oil and gas wells and will eventually shut down production of the drills currently in use. This ban comes after county residents in marginalized communities surrounding the area voiced concerns about the effects of oil drilling on their health. Activist groups and advocates for a healthier environment like Stand-LA, an acronym for Stand Together Against Neighborhood Drilling, and Black Women for Wellness, a Stand-LA coalition member, have led the charge.
