A 19-year police veteran in the ICU after receiving the J&J shot on Friday. Fellow officers say they are more fearful than ever over Charlie Baker’s Oct. 17 mandate to be vaccinated or face being fired.
“Several state troopers are concerned,” said attorney William Gens, whose Boston law firm was hired to represent a group of state police. “This is a highly disturbing incident.”
Gens said the vaccine mandate has left the troopers with no choice but to be a “lab rat” and take the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine. A trooper said the sick sergeant is “a gentleman. A good man. Everyone is hoping for the best for him. This should never have happened.”
