VACCINE MANDATE: Firefighters and cops still lag behind, but 91% of city workforce now has the shot


With less than 24 hours remaining, New York City’s firefighters remained near the bottom of the barrel in complying with the COVID-19 vaccination mandate taking effect on Monday, Nov. 1.

In all, more than 2,000 NYC employees rolled up their sleeves Saturday as the clock ticked down to the first day of mandate enforcement, with 91% of the total workforce now vaccinated against COVID-19. But based on the percentages, it seemed few firefighters and police officers were among those who finally got the shot this weekend.
