A Massachusetts State Police sergeant ended up in the intensive care unit (ICU) after he received the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) Covid-19 vaccine.
According to reports, the 19-year police veteran received his jab on October 15th. After ending up in the ICU, his fellow officers expressed concerns about Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker’s vaccine mandate for state employees, which was introduced on October 17th. This mandate required officers like them to get the vaccine or risk losing their jobs.
Attorney William Gens, whose Boston law firm was hired to represent a group of state police, said that many state troopers are concerned because of the “highly disturbing incident.” He added that Baker’s vaccine mandate has forced the state troopers to take the J&J single-dose vaccine for fear of losing their jobs.
Sources state that the 18-year veteran is married with two children. Brigham and Women’s Hospital confirmed that the police officer is in ICU but details about his condition are unknown.
Massachusetts State Police officer in ICU a day after he got the jab because he didn't want to be terminated. Safe and effective? Tell that to this officers family and the paralyzed officer in Colorado that had a stroke last weekend.This has got to stop! https://t.co/qpwUBh0cZu
