New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled more of his new plan for workplace vaccine requirements, which allows for medical and religious exemptions.
De Blasio rolled out the details of his plan on Wednesday, requiring private-sector workers in the city to receive at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine beginning Dec. 27 and proof of the second dose within the next 45 days for Moderna or Pfizer recipients.
"We saw every single time we put a mandate in place, it was the decisive factor in getting a lot of people to move," the mayor said in a press briefing. "So, I do not expect people to be losing their jobs because we have a body of evidence that shows that people make the decision, when it's really the moment of truth … to get vaccinated."
