The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says it won’t be requiring staff to get the COVID-19 vaccine, fearing such a transfer would trigger a major discount in its workforce.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva told Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” Friday that tons of of sheriff staffers would somewhat lose their jobs than get the jab – including Los Angeles already is coping with far too many crises, together with a large homeless inhabitants, to lose extra deputies.

He known as a mandate requiring all Los Angeles County staff to be totally vaccinated by Oct. 1 — with exemptions just for medical and spiritual causes — “politicized” and “poorly thought out.”

“I cannot in good conscience impose a mandate like that,” stated the lawman, alleging his division was already politically focused with a hiring freeze after being down greater than 1,000 staffers. 

Villanueva, a Democrat, stated he’s vaccinated and encourages his 18,000 underlings to get vaccinated, however doesn’t need to impose it.

In July, the sheriff refused to again a county indoor masks mandate — saying the COVID-19 precaution is “not backed by science” and that the regulation enforcement company won’t implement it.
