“Getting vaccinated is a service to the community,” Judge Crifasi said in a statement.

The covid-19 vaccination giveaways started early in the summer, when the pace of vaccinations first started to fall off. There were gift cards, free trap shooting targets and even the occasional joint. A few months later, with the delta variant spreading and case numbers continuing to rise, a vaccination might now be considered an act of community service.

In East Baton Rouge, some people appearing before Judge Fred Crifasi, of the 19th Judicial District Court, are being afforded the opportunity to get vaccinated in lieu of certain community service hours. https://www.dianomi.com/smartads.epl?id=3533

The judge began offering the alternative earlier this week, amid a surge in case numbers in Louisiana. In that time, roughly 19,000 cases have been reported in the state. Louisiana is among states with the highest daily reported cases per capita in the nation, according to date from The Washington Post.

“Getting vaccinated is a service to the community,” Judge Crifasi said in a statement. “So, if a probation candidate is inclined to get vaccinated, I will grant credit for that effort toward any requirement of community service. The amount of hours varies and depends on the person’s circumstances.”
