New York City will require workers to get coronavirus vaccines

New York City will require all of its municipal workers — including teachers and police officers — to get coronavirus vaccines by mid-September or face weekly COVID-19 testing, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Monday.

The rule affects about 340,000 city employees. No workers will be forced to take a shot but officials hope the inconvenience and of weekly tests will persuade many to overcome a reluctance to get inoculated.
