Attention IAFF Local 244 Members,
As this situation continues to evolve, the Executive Board of IAFF Local 244 would like to be clear with our membership that while we strongly encourage our members to be vaccinated against the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2); we also believe that the decision to get this vaccination should made by the member and his/her medical provider. Currently there is no mandate for either City or County members requiring vaccination and your Executive Board supports this direction. We recommend that all members read the IAFF full position statement as it includes vital information related to mandates. If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact one of your Executive Board Officers.
Members are urged to follow the IAFF social media platforms and to refer to the IAFF Corona Virus Resource Page for important, continuously updated information. The IAFF strongly recommends all members be vaccinated against the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). Read their full position statement here.
