Mayor de Blasio considers expanding vaccine mandate for NYPD, FDNY
New York City is considering expanding its vaccine mandate to more city employees, including police officers and firefighters.
Now that New York City courts have confirmed that the city can mandate COVID-19 vaccines for its employees, Mayor Bill de Blasio said that he is now considering the mandate for all other civil service employees.
Currently, these employees must either be vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test every seven days.
About 68% of NYPD officers are vaccinated. That number is even less for the FDNY.
