Federal Court Clears Vaccine Mandate For NYC Public School Staff – Gothamist

Shortly after the judges’ ruling, Mayor de Blasio said on NY1’s Inside City Hall that all public school staff must now get their first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine by the end of the workday Friday, meaning the mandate would go into effect when the new work week begins on Monday, October 4th.

“If you have not gotten that first dose by Friday five o’clock, we will assume you are not coming to work on Monday and you will not be paid starting Monday and we will fill your role with a substitute or an alternative employee,” he said.
