Covid-19: New York makes the vaccine mandatory for all private sector employees

From December 27, in New York, all employees in the private sector will have to be able to provide proof that they are vaccinated against Covid-19 to get to the office.

It’s an unprecedented move in the United States: New York Mayor Bill de Blasio imposes vaccination on all employees working in the Big Apple, which represents 184,000 companies.

In the United States, some companies have already made vaccination a sine qua non for coming to the office, which is fully in line with American law. But the decision was never made at the city level.

89% of New Yorkers vaccinated

In New York, the obligation has already applied to municipal employees since November 1. As of today, 94% of these workers have been vaccinated.

A total of 89% of adult New Yorkers have so far received at least one dose of the vaccine, while the Omicron virus variant has been confirmed to circulate in around 15 US states, including New York.
