Gov. Kristi Noem Pledges To Never Mandate COVID-19 Vaccine For Schoolchildren

  South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (Photo courtesy Gov. Kristi Noem/Twitter) On Wednesday, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem pledged not to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for children. Her pledge came after the CDC's advisory committee on immunization practices recommended the COVID-19 vaccine's inclusion in the vaccines for children program.

Watch her complete speech from the townhall 'I Hate Critical Race Theory': Kristi Noem Blasts CRT Being Taught To Children. Gov Noem in her speech said: I brought two bills this legislative session that banned critical race theory from being taught in our classrooms. In our k-12 schools and another one that banned it in our universities, the legislature supported and passed. And I signed into law the university one. So, now in South Dakota going forward, critical race theory cannot be taught in our universities they killed the k-12 one.  So, tomorrow I will be signing an executive order to make sure that critical race theory is not taught to our kids in our public school systems too.
