BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A statewide walkout against vaccine mandates in school will happen Monday. 

We spoke with several parents of students to see if they will participate in the walkout.

Heidi Cummings, who lives in Chico, said this is a great way for students against the mandate to make a point. She does not think her daughter will participate in it though. 

“I think she supports the walkout, but she doesn’t want to leave school. I mean they’ve been out of school so much and it’s so unsettled right now that she just wants to go and get her education," said Cummings. 

Autumn Avalos, who lives in Chico, believes everyone who is able to get the vaccine, should get it, so all students can be able to learn safely. 

"I personally don’t believe that there should be a walkout because I believe pulling kids out of school is a detriment to them and their education," said Avalos. 

This walkout plans to affect elementary, middle and high schools as online fliers ask parents, teachers, professionals, students and all to unite to participate. 

Shasta County parents are planning for a walkout meet-up at Riverbend Park in Redding tomorrow.
