Proof of vaccination is being required for anyone wanting to be hired by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD), with some limited exceptions.
Article by Samuel Allegri from The Epoch Times.
“LVMPD is requiring all new hire employees to be vaccinated and to show proof of vaccination for COVID-19 prior to being hired,” their application page reads.
At the end of the announcement, they state that the department is an “equal opportunity employer.”
“All appointments to the competitive service shall be made without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, national origin, genetic information, military service, or political affiliation, and shall be based on merit and fitness only,” the statement reads.
There are some limited exemptions to the vaccine requirement in cases such as health and allergies or religious conflicts, the department told Breitbart.
The Employment Diversity Office will have the religious exemption cases forwarded to them for approval, and the health and allergy cases will be sent to the Health and Safety Section for approval.
“We will approach all requests for accommodations with great care for the individual applicant,” LVMPD told the outlet.
Pushback Against ‘Vaccine Passports’
More than half of U.S. states have banned the use of vaccine passports, asserting that they present serious privacy concerns and lead to disparate treatment of the unvaccinated.
The president of the largest union of health care workers in the United States says the organization will fight against companies requiring mandatory COVID-19 vaccines for employees.
George Gresham, president of 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East—which describes itself as the largest health care union in the country—said that hospital systems don’t have the right to mandate vaccines for employees.
The New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) has also released a statement opposing vaccine mandates.
“NYSNA strongly opposes the mandatory vaccination of health care providers for COVID-19 as a condition of employment or as a state or federal mandate,” the union states on its website.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a March 29 press conference that he will take emergency executive action against the concept of Americans needing a vaccine passport to be able to travel domestically and internationally.
“It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply be able to participate in normal society.”
Representatives from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department didn’t respond to a request for comment by press time.

New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
