LETTER from JOHN A. RUDY
The unions representing New York state troopers and public school teachers oppose a mandatory vaccination requirement for their members. At the same time, more and more private employers are requiring vaccination by their employees as a condition of continued employment.
Conservatives regularly argue that government should emulate the private sector in its employment practices. A vaccination mandate is a good place to start.
For those state troopers and teachers who choose not to be vaccinated and thereby to ignore the risk they pose to us taxpayers and children with whom they come in contact, I suggest that they have at least two other choices:
1) find another line of work;
2) move to Florida or Texas.
