New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has been on strike harder than President Joe Biden for vaccination duty in the United States, has decided that from December 27 all businesses and private businesses in the city will have to vaccinate their employees to come to work.
Mayor Eric Adams, who was elected on Nov. 2, leaves Democrat Councilor Joe Biden out of office on Dec. 31. His vaccination duty is due to take effect Jan. 4, but has been suspended by court. Conclusion – About employees of companies with more than 100 people.
“Here in New York, we have decided to launch a preventive attack (against the corona virus) to do something bold to stop the progression of Govt disease and the risks it poses to all of us,” he told MSNBC. De Blasio said. The channel surprised everyone by announcing the vaccine obligation for 184,000 businesses, organizations and businesses.
He said in a statement that from December 27 all private sector employers in New York will be affected by the need for the vaccine.
“I think it’s a good idea (…) for the public good,” said Sarah Tejam, 30, who works in the legal profession. “A lot more people are getting sick with this virus, even with the vaccine.”
But this decision, already made by the most influential mayor, was not welcomed by all.
“I’m not surprised our mayor used such a brutal method, it ignores our traditions,” Jeff Bolermann commented. “Nothing he does anymore will surprise me.”
In addition, “New Yorkers 12 years of age and older must show proof that they have received two doses of the vaccine”, except for those receiving single-dose serum from Johnson & Johnson, according to the mayor.
The Town Hall added that children between the ages of 5 and 11 must show by December 14 that they have been vaccinated to participate in “high-risk course activities such as sports, music and dance.”
The Democratic mayor stressed that “New York will not give up an inch of land in the fight against COVID-19,” as he was most active during epidemics in 2020, as was former Governor of New York State Andrew Cuomo.
Mr. De Blasio had already imposed a mandatory vaccination on all municipal officials on November 1, and the measure was put to good use despite some protests by firefighters, police and garbage collectors.
The omigran variant of the corona virus has now been confirmed in at least 15 US states – with some cases in New York State.
The largest city in the United States has been ravaged by epidemics, especially since the spring of 2020, with at least 34,000 deaths and images of its utterly desolate city of more than 8.5 million people.
According to City Hall data, “New York has provided more than 12.5 million vaccines (and) nearly 6.5 million New Yorkers – 89 percent of them adults – have received at least one dose.” , (As well as) 125,000 year old children 5 to 11 ”.
But these actions run the risk of being challenged in court.
Last Thursday, Joe Biden called on his fellow citizens to combat their political divisions to fight COVID-19 during the arrival of winter and the new Omigron variant.
The 79-year-old Democrat leader has been trying nationally to get vaccinated in public and private institutions, but he has met with strong opposition from several Republicans and has stumbled upon legal action initiated against these control measures.
A handful of Republicans even tried to block a fiscal law on Thursday to prevent U.S. federal services from being shut down.
The budget was finally approved in the evening.
