LA workers rally against the mandated COVID vaccine, despite incidents of adverse effects such as seizures and death. The city will be forced to stop offering vaccination services if they refuse to comply with the mandate.
A day-long rally was held near the LA City Hall Wednesday, as health care workers called for an independent commission to look into vaccine safety. The protest comes amid a growing anti-vaccine movement in California and across the country.
The “no vaccine passport rally santa monica” is a demonstration against LA Municipal Workers who are being forced to have the COVID vaccine.
(CBSLA) – LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A march and demonstration against COVID-19 vaccination regulations in downtown Los Angeles drew over a thousand municipal and county workers on Monday morning.

Sky2 flew above Grand Park, where first responders, healthcare professionals, utility employees, teachers, and others were among those participating.
The March organizers maintain that this is not a political event, but rather an unified front to defend their right to bodily autonomy and freedom of choice.
“It’s all about liberty.” This has nothing to do with anything else. “This is about your rights as an American,” said John Knox, a 21-year firefighter paramedic and organizer of the day’s march with the organization Firefighters 4 Freedom.
“We’re here to say, ‘No, you’re not going to tell us what we can and can’t do with our bodies,’” says the group.
The Los Angeles Government Board of Supervisors overwhelmingly approved an emergency order in August requiring all county workers to produce confirmation of complete COVID-19 immunization by Oct. 1. Employees that are disobedient may be fired.

Following the decree, almost 600 L.A. County firemen and other county workers joined a lawsuit attempting to overturn the rule.
Workers from a variety of municipal agencies, including law enforcement, were among those in attendance, according to organizers. Speaking to the audience, one guy identified himself as a member of the LA County Sheriff’s Department.
“Just so you know, LASD is not a phantom.” “You’ve got the LAPD up here, you’ve got the LAFD up here, you’ve got a lot of various agencies,” he said.
Last Monday, Sheriff Alex Villanueva of Los Angeles claimed he might lose more than 3,100 cops as a result of the law. Only little more than half of all LASD staff were completely vaccinated as of November 2.
Opponents of the requirement claim that if individuals choose to leave, response times would worsen and the public will suffer.
“This is government overreach,” Knox added, “and people are sick of being told what to do.”
Meanwhile, city of Los Angeles workers have until December 18 to be completely immunized. Those who do not “should be prepared to lose their job,” according to Mayor Eric Garcetti, who acquired the coronavirus last week while attending the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Scotland.
In September, municipal records revealed that roughly 11% of the city’s 57,400 workers had expressed their intention to seek a religious or medical exemption from the rule. Nearly 3,000 LAPD officers were involved.
Vaccination is also necessary for all workers of the Los Angeles Unified School District. At least one dosage of the vaccine has been administered to 97 percent of LAUSD officials, 97 percent of teachers, and 95 percent of classified supervisors. Employees who do not get their second injection by November 15 risk losing their employment.
The vaccination regulations imposed by the Los Angeles City Council have been tough. A municipal rule went into effect on Monday, requiring confirmation of a COVID-19 vaccine to access restaurants, pubs, gyms, shopping malls, and a variety of other facilities.
The “la city council passes vaccine mandate” is a rally against the COVID (Council on Occupational and Industrial Disease) that passed in LA. The rally was held to ask for support from the public.
