NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a COVID-19 vaccination mandate for all City personnel. Starting from 20th October 21, 2021 (today), City workers will receive an extra $500 in their paycheck for receiving their first jab.

“As we continue our recovery for all of us, city workers have been a daily inspiration. Now is the time for them to show their city the path out of this pandemic once and for all.” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio asked the New York workforce to get vaccinated in the first place.

 

“There is no greater privilege than serving the people of New York City, and that privilege comes with a responsibility to keep yourself and your community safe,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “We have led the way against COVID-19 from fighting for the right to vaccinate frontline workers, to providing nation-leading incentives, to creating the Key to NYC mandate”.

This benefit will end at 5 pm on Friday, October 29th, by which point City employees are required to have proof of at least one dose. Unvaccinated employees will be placed on unpaid leave until they show proof of vaccination to their superiors.

Health Commissioner Dr. Dave Chokshi signed a Commissioner’s Order to formalize the mandate, which will immediately apply to approximately 160,500 City workers. About seventy-one percent of the workers have already received at least one vaccine dose.
