PROVIDENCE — The vast majority of Rhode Islanders may have moved past the pandemic, but some of those who lost jobs because they would not get vaccinated against COVID-19 are still looking for vindication, reinstatement “and/or” back pay for their lost wages.

They also want legal protections going forward against what they view as “discrimination.”

One was a former Barrington school teacher; others were former nurses who lost their jobs in a Rhode Island hospital for refusing to take what more than one called “an experimental vaccine.”

Altogether, more than five dozen activists in Rhode Island’s anti-mandate movement came to the State House in person late last week – or sent letters – to make their arguments known to state lawmakers.
