Clark County Fire Department mandate
As an employee of the Clark County Fire Department and a member of IAFF local 1908, I affirm the following three propositions. By signing this petition, I am exercising my constitutional right outlined in the first amendment to “petition the government for a redress of grievances”, regarding the vaccination mandate being implemented by Clark County.
1. I am opposed to a county or department wide COVID19 vaccination mandate in any form.
2. Every member of the Clark County Fire Department should have the right to make their own medical decisions regarding the COVID19 vaccination in consultation with their family, church, and/or personal physician.
3. Clark County has a duty to honor the collective bargaining agreement with Clark County Firefighters Local 1908 (July 1, 2021-June 30, 2024) which states in Article 14 on page 14 under physical examinations: “Employees may decline part or all immunizations. If the employee does decline part or all immunizations they must sign a form stating that they know the risk”.
My signature on this petition does not reflect my position on the efficacy, necessity, or value of the COVID19 vaccine itself. Rather, my signature reflects my opposition to any member of the Clark County Fire Department being forced to receive the vaccination against their will.
