With the COVID-19 vaccinations being rolled out, some are concerned they may be mandated in the future.
On Friday, a group rallied outside the Liberty Pole. The event was spearhead by Jose Peo, a Rochester city councilman, and Save Rochester-Black Lives Matter. Some say they are not opposed to vaccines, but don't want to be forced to get them.
"We want you to have the choice whether or not you want the vaccine, simple as that. If you want the vaccine, fantastic, we're not going to jump ahead of you in line, take the vaccine. But, we want you to have your choice," said Peo.
There's been a bill proposed in the New York State Assembly that would require New Yorkers to get the vaccine in certain situations.
