‘Herd immunity’ misinformation used in firefighter union exec’s defense of opposition to COVID-19 vaccine mandate


What happens when the first responder employed to save your life risks exposure to a deadly virus?

The FDNY Uniformed Firefighters Association held a press conference on Oct. 20 to announce that they not only stand by firefighters who are refusing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, they also exclaimed that they are also anti-mandate. The news came hours after Mayor Bill de Blasio announced an order mandating that all city employees get at least the first dose of the vaccine by 5 p.m. Oct. 29, or be sent home without pay until they do.
