COVIDtarian: NYC To Impose Vaccine Mandate On All, Including Children 5 And Up

The big question here, does incoming mayor Eric Adams keep it or dump it? Well, also, how soon till lawsuits are filed and courts shut this down?

New York City’s vaccine mandate applies to children as young as 5

From big Wall Street banks to corner grocery stores, all private employers in New York City will have to require their workers to get vaccinated against COVID-19, the mayor announced Monday in the most sweeping vaccine mandate of any state or big city in the U.S.

The move by Mayor Bill de Blasio comes as cases are climbing again in the U.S. and the worrisome but little-understood omicron variant is gaining a toehold in the nation’s largest city and elsewhere around the country.

“We in New York City 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,” he said.

De Blasio, a Democrat with just weeks left in office, said the mandate will take effect Dec. 27, with in-person workers needing to provide proof they have received at least one dose of the vaccine. And they will not be allowed to get out of the requirement by agreeing to regular COVID-19 testing instead.

The measure will apply to roughly 184,000 businesses not covered by previous vaccine mandates, ranging from multinational corporations to mom-and-pop businesses in the city of 8.8 million people, according to a spokesperson for the mayor. The city’s private-sector workforce is 3.7 million.

Also, anyone 12 or older who wants to dine indoors at a restaurant, go to a gym or see a show will have to produce proof of having received two shots of the vaccine, up from the current requirement of one dose, the mayor said. And children 5 to 11 will have to show proof of at least one shot.

Now, any of you New Yorkers who complain, nope, keep it to yourself. You voted for this. Suck it up. Don’t attempt to leave the city, don’t attempt to take your business out of NYC. Live with your vote.

De Blasio said he expects his mandate to survive any legal challenges. Employees will be able to ask for religious or medical exemptions.

Yeah, well, good luck with that. But, there is something interesting that is missing from the roughly 20 articles I’ve read, including the NY Times

None of them are asking that simple question, what statutes, laws, code, allows this? How about the New York State Constitution?

The mayor said he will release more details next week about how the mandate will be enforced.

The Devil is in the details. Will the NYPD be sent to enforce this? Checking papers? I don’t think the city will get the compliance from the cops like they do in Australia and some other places, where they’ve gone power mad.
