Seattle firefighters who lost their jobs over the COVID vaccine mandate dropped off their boots at the town hall.
About 100 firefighters will no longer work for the department, whether due to resignation, retirement, or termination because of the city’s covid mandate.
Seattle firefighter Andrew Pittman “I just have strong moral and philosophical convictions against taking the shot,” Pittman told Dori of why he won’t get vaccinated. He added that COVID has run through his family, but the department won’t accept natural immunity.
