Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “NYC to Require City Workers to Get Covid Vaccine by Sept. 13: De Blasio” – below is their description.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Monday that all municipal workers will be required to receive the Covid-19 vaccine or get tested weekly by September 13 to tame the spread of the highly contagious delta variant.
The vaccine mandate is the first expansion of a policy announced last week that requires health care workers in public hospitals and clinics to be vaccinated by Aug. 2 or submit to weekly tests. About 60% of the city’s more than 42,000 public hospital employees have been vaccinated, according to Mitchell Katz, president and chief executive officer of the system. Only 54% of people are fully vaccinated in the city, which missed its goal of fully vaccinating 5 million New Yorkers by the end of June. Just over 4.5 million New Yorkers are fully vaccinated.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
