State, county correction officers have until Wednesday to get COVID-19 shot or risk being fired
State and county correction officers have until Wednesday to get their COVID-19 shot, or risk being fired, after the state's top court refused to intervene and stop Gov. Phil Murphy's vaccine mandate.
Several police unions, led by the New Jersey State PBA, asked the state Supreme Court Friday for an emergency stay on Murphy's order after a three-judge appeals panel ruled against them.
Murphy's order, issued last month, requires staff at county jails and state prisons to get their first shot by Wednesday and be fully vaccinated by the end of March.
Those who don't comply face termination.
