Police Want to Get COVID Vaccines Sooner Rather Than Later
The union that represents Ohio police is urging the state to put officers higher on the list of people eligible for COVID-19 vaccines.
Ohio Fraternal Order of Police president Gary Wolske says officers thought they’d be among the first responders who’d get the vaccine first. Firefighters and EMT’s did, but police were not included in that top tier group. Wolske says they should have been.
“We are in closer contact with citizens in the community than most everybody," Wolske said.
