Global News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: New York mandates vaccines for health workers, as US lags behind in shots” – below is their description.

Health workers in New York are facing a new ultimatum this week, as new state mandates now require them to be vaccinated for COVID-19 or lose their jobs.

The new rules come as the United States lags behind in its vaccination rate compared to other countries. According to Johns Hopkins University, less than 56 per cent of Americans are fully vaccinated, and the country now ranks 42nd in the world.

As Jackson Proskow reports, vaccine mandates are also still facing fierce push back across the country.
