Private sector employees in NYC will have to be vaccinated. Otherwise, they will face termination.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced this on December 6.
“We have decided to use a preemptive strike to really do something bold to stop the further growth of COVID and the dangers it’s causing to all of us,” the mayor said.

C-19 is a disease caused by the CCP virus.
De Blasio is the democrat who announced the mandates in his appearance on MSBC’s Morning Joe.
The cause behind the mandates is the Omicron mutation, colder weather, and upcoming holiday gatherings.
Employees have to verify vaccination status to their employers with vaccine passports.
The mandate will be into effect on December 27. Further details are scheduled to be shared on December 15.
Eric Adams, who will succeed the term-limited de Blasio, didn’t comment on this issue.
Vaccine mandates for employers make everything harder, and they can’t avoid the vaccine anymore.
“The more universal they are, the more likely employees will say, ‘OK, it’s time, I’m going to do this.’ Because you can’t jump from one industry to another or one company to another; it’s something that needs to be universal to protect all of us,” he said.
NYC will extend the vaccine mandate for indoor dining to children at age 5, amending it to force people to get two shots instead of one.
“How can he enforce this on businesses that operate without licenses from NYC?” he wrote on Twitter. “He can’t. Don’t open the door for the de Blasio health police. You don’t need a vax to work in most private-sector jobs in New York City. The court will tell us this, too.”
Many employers are forced to get the shot.
The city reported a weekly average of 1,600 cases, the highest number since September 27. Hospitalizations are lowered on a weekly average of 43.
Most of the people infected with C-19 have mild or no symptoms.
The vaccine effectiveness has dropped dramatically during the time, forcing the officials to promote the booster shot.
The Biden admin shared that they will mandate the vaccines in the private sector, but the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration suspended enforcement of the rule one month ago.
The courts ruled against another similar mandate linked to health care facilities.
NYC’s restrictions have been challenged in court. De Blasio announced that the private sector mandate would prevail over any challenges.
