Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “NYC to Require Covid Vaccinations for All Teachers and Staff: De Blasio” – below is their description.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said New York City school teachers and staff must be vaccinated by late September, calling the mandate a crucial step to keep children safe and stymie the resurgent pandemic.

The requirement, announced at a briefing Monday morning with reporters, goes beyond a previous policy that let teachers and staff choose weekly testing if they didn’t get inoculated. The mandate will require employees to receive at least one dose by Sept. 27, two weeks into the school year.

De Blasio said the mandate will speed a vaccination drive that has already led to 75% of New York City’s adults receiving at least one shot.

Monday’s announcement came just as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave full approval to the Covid-19 vaccine made by Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE, a milestone that could open the door to more vaccination requirements among employers and businesses.
