De Blasio to require all NYC public workers to get vax’d—no option for testing

This has to be stopped.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is set to announce on Wednesday that all municipal city workers will be required to get vaccinated against COVID, with no option for testing. It has been primarily law enforcement and firefighters who have been hold-outs against getting vaccinated.

Of the city’s firefighters, 60 percent have had one shot of vaccine, while among police officers 70 percent have undergone the jab.
A spokeswoman for the mayor’s office said that this order covers 160,500 workers in total, with 46,000 of those required to get their first shot by Oct. 29 or face potential termination, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Workers who do not submit to the requirement will be placed on unpaid leave. The mayor’s office intends to try to negotiate with the labor unions that represent city workers.
