Police unions push back on vaccine mandates

Nov 2, 2021
So far these mandate were local. But police officers in many states face coming federal vaccine requirements for public workers.
Chicago police officers and their supporters protest the department's vaccination policy outside of police headquarters on October 26, 2021 in Chicago, Illinois. The city has started to place police officers on unpaid leave for refusing to comply with the city's requirements that they report their COVID-19 vaccination status. As of last week, only about 65 percent of the city's police have complied with the order.
