• More Than 26,000 NYC Workers Miss Vaccine Mandate Deadline. Enforcement Set To Begin Monday

*

– More than 26,000 New York City government employees, including firefighters, police officers, and sanitation workers, flouted the deadline for Mayor Bill de Blasio’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, according to data provided by his office.

-The workers had until Friday at 5 p.m. to get the shots and claim a $500 bonus. On Monday, the unvaccinated city workers will be sent home without pay, potentially jeopardizing response times by first responders and interrupting other city services.

The new figures show 89% of city workers have taken at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, with 19,000 city workers inoculated since de Blasio announced a vaccine mandate and eliminated the alternative for weekly testing on October 20th. New York City carries a public workforce of 378,000 people, and about 159,000 are under the new mandate.

===============================================

My 2 cents opinion:
I am sure that the city will be able to find 26 thousand replacements with people that are responsible and do not mind picking up garbage, buildings on fire, or playing soldier. It sets a bad precedent to let individuals set public health policy procedures because they do not believe, or trust authorities. Estoy seguro de que la ciudad podrá encontrar 26 mil reemplazos con personas que sean responsables y no les importe recoger basura, edificios en llamas o jugar al soldado. Establece un mal precedente, permitir que individuos establezcan procedimientos de políticas de salud pública porque no creen o no confían en las autoridades.
