FOP Lodge 2 Statement on the City of Phoenix Vaccine Mandate

The Arizona Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 2 has taken the position that vaccinations work effectively to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We have encouraged our members to get the vaccine so they can stay safe at work and at home.

With that said, we believe that medical decisions like whether to get vaccinated should be made by the individual in consultation with his or her physician, not by government at the federal, state or local level. No one should be forced by the government to choose between their career and their health.
