A judge at a rabbinical court refused vaccination, and got suspended

News of a possibly Haredi judge who refused vaccination against Coronavirus getting put aside:
The Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of Israel and chief of the rabbinate’s top religious court, Rabbi David Lau, has suspended a rabbinical judge from a rabbinate court responsible for conversions, after the judge refused to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The judge in question was part of a court responsible for handling the conversions of IDF soldiers to Judaism.

Rabbi Lau said all judges are obliged to receive the vaccine.

“As far as he is concerned, it is the obligation of every judge to get vaccinated, and insofar as it is permitted by law, any judge who does not get vaccinated will be prevented from serving in his position and endangering others who come to the court,” Rabbi Lau’s office said in a statement.
Well if he's a Haredi, he sure set quite an example. There are thankfully more Haredis getting vaccinated now, but this was clearly one who adhered to an insular viewpoint believing these medicines to be more bad than good. And to think, that this one was even a conversion judge. Not acceptable, IMO.
