Up to half of Chicago's rank-and-file police officers could be placed on unpaid leave starting Friday because of a dispute between their union and Mayor Lori Lightfoot over a city requirement for officers to disclose their vaccine status.

The dispute in Chicago is emblematic of tension across the country between unions and employers as cities and businesses seek to enforce vaccine mandates. At least 228 officers have died of Covid-19 this year compared to 245 last year, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page.

Covid is the leading cause of death for officers despite them being among the first groups having access to the vaccine at the end of last year.

At least 120 officers in San Francisco will be off the street after failing to comply with the city's vaccine mandate, CNN affiliate KGO reported. Eighty of the 120 police officers work in the department's patrol division, San Francisco Police Officers Association vice president Tracy McCray said.

In a message to officers in Chicago, their union president framed the issue as an employment dispute between the city and the officers.

"I've made my status very clear as far as the vaccine, but I do not believe the city has the authority to mandate that to anybody let alone that information about your medical history and change the terms of employment so to speak on the fly," said John Catanzara, president of the local Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) lodge. Earlier this month, the former president of the union died of Covid. He served as president from 2014 until 2017.

Considering that COVID is the leading killer of police officers in the last two years, you'd think they'd be leaning on their membership to get vaccinated rather than fighting them.

As for resignation threats, they tend to be full of sound and fury but contain very little substance.

OK, OK, I'll get a flu shot!
Getting mine this afternoon. 

Went to the doctor, they weighted me in shoes with full pockets. So my BMI is officially 28.2.

I still need to reduce a bit in the middle, eat more veggies, but I’m mostly not concerned about all that.
Yeah, BMI is a crude measure. I've heard that for men, a very critical measurement is having a <40" waist, and I'm sitting just fine at 38" despite being a very large human being and having a BMI over 30.

Amen, brutha.

I recently encountered someone within my actual circle of friends, that hasn't been vaccinated.  I was surprised, I really assumed she had been.

She's not an anti-vaxxer or hardcore political person from ANY party.  She's had what she believes are some reactions to flu vaccines over the years and just doesn't want to endure it.

I have just been beating her over the head with the stats and data lately (in a polite and respectful way of course), and I think I've got her coming around.  She agreed to at the very least discuss it with her doctor, and I'm hopeful that her doctor will be very forceful.

That was my better half- for the longest time.  She just doesn’t react well to shots.  
I finally got her converted a couple months back.
