Up to 30% of Bridgeport city employees remain unvaccinated

Seventy percent of city workers are vaccinated in Bridgeport, Connecticut — not counting school employees, according to Hearst Connecticut Media. 

A Bridgeport spokesperson told Hearst the remaining 30% of the city’s 2,000 employees either haven’t been vaccinated or didn’t respond to the city’s inquiry.

Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim said employees who don’t get vaccinated could be terminated, but employees can get tested weekly as an alternative.

The deadline for participation was September 27.

Davis Dunavin loves telling stories, whether on the radio or around the campfire. He fell in love with sound-rich radio storytelling while working as an assistant reporter at KBIA public radio in Columbia, Missouri. Before coming back to radio, he worked in digital journalism as the editor of Newtown Patch. As a freelance reporter, his work for WSHU aired nationally on NPR. Davis is a proud graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism; he started in Missouri and ended up in Connecticut, which, he'd like to point out, is the same geographic trajectory taken by Mark Twain.
