All Philadelphia Police Officers Must Be Vaccinated For COVID-19, Arbitration Panel Rules

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- An arbitration panel has ruled that all Philadelphia police officers must be vaccinated for COVID-19.

Officers must provide proof of at least one dose or receive an exemption by Feb. 11.

Any officer who is vaccinated will receive a one-time payment of $500.

Officials say 71-80% of the department is already vaccinated.

The panel will meet next month to determine the consequences for those who remain unvaccinated.
