Public Advocate's Statement On The Imminent Vaccine Requirement For City Workers

October 29th, 2021

Press Release

"I want to thank my team for successfully navigating our first week of gradually returning to the office in person, and for doing so safely. Ahead of the implementation of the vaccine requirement for city workers, I am proud to have already achieved 100% compliance within the Office of the Public Advocate.

"With the new requirement about to take effect, I once again encourage the city’s municipal employees from all agencies to get vaccinated today and protect yourself, your coworkers, your families and friends. While it is true that the rollout of this policy could have been improved, and its development aided by greater union participation, these frustrations are not a reason to oppose vaccination and risk lives, either from COVID-19 or from a lack of crucial services New Yorkers depend on. We all have a moral mandate to protect one another."
