Even after her life partner and fellow Los Angeles Police Department employee Raymond Guerrero died of COVID-19, Debra Guerrero wasn’t quite sure about getting the vaccine. She’d had the virus, too, and been pretty sick, but wanted to see further testing of the vaccine before getting the jab. But her daughters, who had just lost their father, changed her mind. “Every time I would cough or get a cold my children would worry that I was going to get sick and die,” said Guerrero, a police service representative for the past 20 years. “When your daughter looks you in the face and tells you, ‘You’re the only parent I have left,’ it’s very gut-wrenching.” Guerrero said that now — eight months after Raymond Guerrero’s death in January — she encourages everyone in the department to get vaccinated.
