New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) announced a vaccine mandate for cops, firefighters, and city workers.
The deadline for getting the first vaccine dose is November 1st.
New York City will require police officers, firefighters and other municipal workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or be placed on unpaid leave, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday, giving an ultimatum to public employees who’ve refused and ensuring a fight with some unions representing them.
The mandate affecting the nation’s largest police department and more than 100,000 other Big Apple workers — including trash haulers and building inspectors — carries a Nov. 1 deadline for getting the first vaccine dose, de Blasio announced.
Of the workers affected by the new mandate, 71% have already received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to the city.
Now, we have this.
NYPD’s police union has announced they are going to take legal action against the vaccine mandate.
