Los Angeles High Schools Cut Unvaccinated From Rosters

2021 10 19

High schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District began removing unvaccinated players from rosters on Monday. 

The move comes following an LAUSD mandate that bans students who are not fully vaccinated from participating in games or after-school practices.

According to the Los Angeles Times, LAUSD statistics indicated last week that at least 70 percent of district athletes had been vaccinated. On Monday, LAUSD announced that 77 percent of students on teams met the Sunday deadline for two-dose COVID-19 vaccine.

Unvaccinated students can regain their eligibility the day after becoming fully vaccinated with a second shot of the Pfizer vaccine or, if they are 18, the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine, according to the LAUSD.
