Former Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s gubernatorial campaign notified staff members on Monday that they will be required to receive a COVID vaccine if they want to keep their jobs.
“In the interest of public health and the safety and wellbeing of our team, Terry for Virginia has made the decision to require full vaccination against COVID-19 as a condition of employment with the campaign,” wrote “Terry for Virginia” in a statement.
“The only way we’re going to truly end this pandemic and keep our economy strong is by getting every eligible Virginian vaccinated as quickly as possible,” the statement added. “The health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, supporters, and volunteers is our top priority, and this is another important step to protect our community and get through this pandemic.”
McAuliffe himself tweeted, “We are not going to be safe until everyone has a vaccine. And that’s what our goal should be. Our government must lead on this…” wrote the authoritarian hypocrite, who had tweeted earlier this year in support of Virginians’ right to make choices regarding their own bodily autonomy.
