(Natural News) Government workers in the city of Denver who refuse to get the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine could be disciplined and terminated. The announcement follows Denver Department of Public Health and Environment (DPHE) Executive Director Robert McDonald’s vaccination mandate for the city’s approximately 10,000 workers. According to McDonald, all workers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Sept. 30.
Denver Department of Public Safety (DOS) Executive Director Murphy Robinson said he was prepared to punish and fire government workers who refuse to comply. “[Robert McDonald’s] mandate says city employees shall be vaccinated. If our folks don’t comply with it… then I am prepared to do what is necessary,” Robinson said. The DPHE executive director’s vaccine mandate applied to police officers, sheriff’s deputies and firefighters working for the city.
Kelli Christensen, a spokeswoman for DOS, confirmed Robinson’s remarks in an email sent to The Epoch Times. “Executive Director Robinson has been tasked to ensure all public safety staff are in compliance. [If] not, discipline – up to and including termination – could be imposed,” she wrote in the email. However, Denver’s vaccine mandate recognized exemptions on religious and medical grounds.
