Berkeley, CA.- Last night Assembly candidates Buffy Wicks and Jovanka Beckles appeared at Berkeley’s Stonewall Democratic Club endorsement meeting and were asked their position on mandatory vaccinations in schools.
Beckles did not answer the question. “That’s one of those issues that – it keeps us fighting each other. I know growing up, I mean, I’m a 55 year-old woman who grew up in a country, a Central American country where vaccines were mandatory. And I have the scars to prove it still at this age. Right? And so there was a time where it was mandatory and everyone got it. And we didn’t have to worry about our children and our teachers and our workers contracting something. However, now, you know, vaccines, that’s the real issues that we have to address. Is, is what has changed? What has changed with these vaccines that, so.” Beckles said before being cut off for time.
When asked the same question Wicks said, “I view this as a public health issue, and I support mandatory vaccinations in schools.”
