In the video message posted to social media, Sheriff Mark Lamb said, “With the increase in private businesses and even government organizations talking about mandating the vaccine, I wanted to let you know that here at the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office we do not mandate the vaccine and as long as I’m your sheriff, we will never mandate the vaccine.”

Sheriff Lamb said, “We believe that your health choices are yours and yours alone, so whether you get the vaccine or don’t get the vaccine, that’s your private information.”
