As NYC COVID Vaccine Mandate Approaches, More Than 19,000 First Responders Remain Holdouts – Gothamist (Me: Just get with public safety and health and vaccinate… or leave!)

Only 68% of all FDNY employees have shown proof of at least one dose. Based on headcount estimates provided by the Independent Budget Office, that comes out to 5,700 unvaccinated employees. That includes EMS employees, who on their own have a 74% vaccination rate. Firefighters, meanwhile, are hovering at 64%, bringing down FDNY’s overall average.  Source: As NYC COVID Vaccine Mandate Approaches, More Than 19,000 First Responders Remain Holdouts – Gothamist
