5:34 am
but next year they voted to close brookfield, monk, grass valley, horace mann elementary schools and komatsu discovery academy. two more schools would only serve students up to fifth grade instead of eighth grade and rise cumin 80 schools would merge with new highlands academy. and protest some parents and activists moved into the parker school campus and started running and unsanctioned summer camp with activities and meals for children in that community. in a statement oakland unified demanded the group move out because they were not meeting district standards for safety and supervision and background checks. despite the pressure on the school board since february the majority of the school board has maintained their position on those closures and other votes since then. they oakland school board will also have to talk about and finalize the budget. it's a $700 million budget but they are working with $40

5:37 am
and the side effects are really the same after the coronavirus vaccine. a child may have no symptoms at all or may have a little bit of irritability or fussiness, redness and swelling at the injection site, or even a low- grade fever for a day or two. and some children may even have a high fever for a day or two. but those symptoms are self- limited. they are expected and are not atypical of what we expect from any immunization. >> is it safe for children get the covid vaccine at the same time as other vaccines or a flu shot? >> yes. and older children have been receiving vaccines along with their covid vaccine, or at least some of the time. they, of course, don't get as many vaccines as the younger children do. but, yes, they have been given this way and they are safe experiment you
