More than a third of Chicago police officers defy city vaccine mandate

About 4,500 Chicago police officers didn't report their vaccination status by Oct. 15 as mandated by the city, officials said Monday.

That means roughly 35% of the city's 12,770 police officers could be placed on no-pay status in the foreseeable future.

The Chicago Police Department had the lowest response rate of any department in the city, but of the about 64% who did report, the majority of officers say they are vaccinated, according to data released by the city.

Specifically, 6,894 indicated being vaccinated while 1,333 reported they have not.

Those who said they are not vaccinated are required to opt into twice weekly testing for COVID-19 until the end of the year to remain in compliance with the city policy.
