Dear FireRescue1 Member,

We asked and you answered – in force!

Do you plan to get a COVID-19 vaccine? Here’s the breakdown of the 1,300+ votes:
  • 62% said yes: 50% already got it or will get it under any circumstances, 11% only on their own terms, and 1% because department mandates it.
  • 29% said no, under no circumstances.
  • Others were unsure.
The debate was strong on Facebook. See what other members of the FireRescue1 community are saying, and share your thoughts.

Stay safe and healthy.
