Vaccine mandate for public employees still in effect in NYC, unvaccinated municipal workers...

(Natural News) The Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine mandate for municipal workers in New York City (NYC) continues to be in place, with authorities in the Big Apple continuing the termination of workers refusing the COVID-19 clot shot.

NYC Mayor Eric Adams said back in September 2022 that vaccine mandate for private companies would be lifted by Nov. 1, 2022 as a sign of the city's gradual return to pre-pandemic norms. However, public employees continue to be bound by the COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Adams remarked that proof of vaccination is still required for municipal workers – including police officers, firefighters and teachers.

In line with this, the Big Apple has continued laying off hundreds of municipal workers turning down the injections. Just recently, 850 teachers and aides found themselves jobless for noncompliance with the vaccine mandates. This brought the total of fired employees from the education sector to almost 2,000, according to the New York Post.

As of September 2022, NYC has fired more than 1,700 city employees – including 36 police officers and 24 firefighters – for noncompliance with the vaccine mandate.

"We are in a steady phase of pivot and shift. We do things, we roll things out slowly. Right now, that is not on the radar for us," Adams said, referring to lifting the mandate for government employees.
