Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates have driven American citizens into a frenzy of fighting back against him. From regular Americans, the working population, well-known Artists, and now, our very own state troopers.
I mean, we can’t blame these leery Citizens, after all the effectiveness of these vaccines has been really controversial after more new cases are among the vaccinated people.
It’s a known fact that more and more people are not in favor of taking a vaccine jab and recently, dozens of Massachusetts State Police have resigned over Biden’s vaccine mandates.
Under Gov. Charlie Baker’s executive order issued last month, all 42,000 state employees and government contractors must receive a COVID vaccine by October 17. If state workers do not get vaccinated and are not granted an exemption, they could face disciplinary action or be fired.
State Police Association President Michael Cherven said in a statement, “It is unfortunate that the Governor and his team have chosen to mandate one of the most stringent vaccine mandates in the country with no reasonable alternatives.”
Chervin said the troopers should have “reasonable alternatives” to being required to get vaccinated such as wearing masks and being tested regularly.
Previously, after the Massachusetts State Police union has filed a lawsuit to delay Governor Charlie Baker’s COVID-19 vaccination mandate, considered one of the toughest in the nation, which requires state employees to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 17 or risk being fired but this attempt was not really successful.
With the judge’s ruling, unvaccinated troopers were only given a few days to get their first vaccine dose or they could face disciplinary action instead, these brave troopers stand up for their freedom and left the job over the jab.
Massachusetts is not the first locality to mandate vaccines for government workers. In August, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that all Education Department employees must get vaccinated beginning at the end of September.
