The Santa Monica City Council will consider at its August 24th meeting, whether City employees should be required to obtain vaccinations for Covid-19, prior to reporting for their jobs and as a condition of employment.
The City Council (should) express its position that to protect the health and safety of both City Employees and the public we serve, absent legitimate medical or religious concerns, all city employees volunteers and contractors should be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19," says the calendar item.
The City of Los Angeles recently adopted a similar mandate. Employees must have their first shot by Sept. 7th, and their second by October 10th. No word yet on what will happen to those who refuse the City of LA mandate.
