Mayor de Blasio to announce COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all city workers

Mayor de Blasio to announce COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all city workers | 20 Oct 2021 | Mayor de Blasio is set to announce a coronavirus vaccine requirement for all municipal employees Wednesday, The Post has learned. The city workers -- including firefighters and cops -- will have to get their first shot by Nov. 1, sources told The Post. Currently, only Department of Education staff are required to be vaccinated, but de Blasio has long considered extending the mandate to all 300,000 city workers... The news about the mandate did not sit well with one Brooklyn elected official. "The mayor has no idea what he's doing. We're going to lose half of our cops and half of our fire department if this goes through, and then what?" the official said.
