In light of recent news regarding questions pertaining to Barrington's vaccine mandate for teachers, we thought it would be worthwhile to poll our greater community of East Bay readers for their thoughts.

For this poll, we are asking whether or not you believe educators should be required to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in order to retain their employment, provided they do not have a sufficient reason for why they cannot receive one.
