Bye. Go find a new job where vaccination is not part of the requirements.

Easy, fire them. Wouldn’t it be better if our police officers gave a shit about public health?

What religion are they practicing? I am currently unaware of major religions who are actively against the vaccine.

People claiming a religious exemption usually say that the vaccines were developed with fetal cells so they won’t take it, but then take medicine like Benadryl, Sudafed, Tums, and Tylenol that all were developed using testing with fetal cell tissue. In fact most everyday modern medicine was tested using lines developed using fetal cells.

But it’s not about facts or religion, it’s about asserting their politics. Likely same officers who use white lies to cover up their own misdeeds and are part of the bad apples that make the department toxic.

I think 200 SF police officers is a good # to lower the police force by,

A smack in the face to people that go to work every day and actually try to help others in a thankless public service job.

Their medical records should be checked by IA to see if they've had ANY vaccinations while employed by SFPD. If they have they should be given choice of vaccination or sign a waiver of ANY legal negligence or responsibility to SFPD/​SF City so that they own all medical/​legal consequences from their action. Refusal is an action.

I personally know two police officers that haven't gotten the vaccine. One is up there in age (good candidate for the vaccine, right?) so he's probably just going to retire if they don't accept his exemption. The other left and went to another state where they don't do vaccine requirements.

Pretty good that 87% of them got the vaccine though. Guess I'll learn who else isn't vaccinated by whether or not I stop seeing them around the area.

i want to see the rate of complaints about police conduct of the vaccinated and the antivax cops. I have a hunch we have identified the bad apples

For perspective, there are over 2100 police officers in SF. 10% being anti-vax doesn’t surprise me

Remember that when you call 911, you need to specify you want a vaccinated officer.

Next they're going to claim that their religious exemption prevents them from having to pay taxes. Just like all the other churches in the USA.
