    The US government has never forced anyone to be vaccinated so I doubt very much they would force anyone to be vaccinated against covid19.  If they passed such a law it would be overturned as being non-constitutional.

    However, schools can require students be vaccinated against any and all diseases for which there are vaccines; e.g. measles, mumps, chicken pox, croup, etc.  While a parent might file a lawsuit against this, I've never heard of a school's rule in this regard being overturned when their child has been prohibited from attending school because they failed to be vaccinated.

    Hopefully soon there will also be a vaccine for covid19.
