CALIFORNIA - School walkouts happening across the state Monday over the COVID-19 vaccine mandate the governor laid out for school-aged children earlier this month.
Many parents took their students out of school Monday to protest the mandate.
Some parents and kids were out in front of Butte County Public Health in Oroville on Monday.
In Redding, people are at the Riverbend Park protesting the vaccine mandate.
The mandate will require all elementary through high schools students to get the COVID-19 vaccine once it gains final approval by the U.S. Government for different age groups.
Parents at Butte County Public Health said this is the first of many protests and they want to put an end to the mandate now before it goes into effect.
There was also a walkout in Alturas where the wet weather did not stop protestors to say no to the mandated vaccines for students.
The protest in Alturas was peaceful and there were about 100 people and covered several blocks.
Thousands of people were at the state Capitol protesting the mandate as California is the first state in the country to say it is going to require the COVID-19 vaccine for schoolchildren.
