Chicago police union says 'hell no' to Lightfoot's COVID-19 vaccine mandate Matthew Miller Wed, August 25, 2021, 6:28 PM
A leading Chicago police union opposed an impending mandate from Mayor Lori Lightfoot that requires all city officers to get the COVID-19 vaccine. John Catanzara, president of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police, said his group is "100% against mandated vaccines for our members," according to a statement given to Fox 32. "This vaccine has no studies for long-term side effects or consequences. None," Catanzara told the Chicago Sun-Times. "To mandate anybody to get that vaccine, without that data as a baseline, amongst other issues, is a Hell, no' for us."
