Two New York judges made the headlines after they allow the COVID-19 vaccine as part of their rulings.

Manhattan judge Jed Rakoff ordered the release of a woman accused of drug dealing on the condition is she promises to be vaccinated.

Rakoff said he could not grant bail to a suspect if he felt they are a danger to the public.

He said that granting her bail in exchange for a COVID-19 vaccine is the right thing to do to ensure she is not a health concern to the public.

Meanwhile, Bronx judge Jeffrey Zimmerman made vaccination part of a plea deal.

Zimmerman told the defendant facing drug possession, shoplifting, and criminal contempt that he could get a less penalty if he decided to get himself vaccinated.

Sources said the two defendants on the said cases had has objections to the proposal of the judges.
