Dozens of anti-vax protesters block roads outside New York City Mayor de Blasio’s home in Brooklyn

Dozens of protesters blocked roads outside Mayor Bill de Blasio’s home in Brooklyn last night after he revealed plans to impose a vaccine mandate on employees of all private companies.

Protesters chanted “no vaccine mandates” and “my body, my choice” as they blocked traffic, including a garbage truck, outside the New York City address.

De Blasio issued and ordered the new Covid-19 vaccine mandate on Monday that children aged 5-11 are admitted in the rule that forces restaurants, cinemas and other public places to request a vaccination certificate before entry.

It remains unclear how De Blasio plans to enforce the draconian measures — the first in the nation — and whether his successor, Eric Adams, who will take the baton on Jan. 1, will maintain the policy.

Protesters last night demanded: ‘Save our children’ and ‘We say no, we say no!’ while another held a sign that read ‘Wake up New York’. Hold the line.’

And in another twist, a New York judge yesterday temporarily suspended de Blasio’s vaccine mandate for city workers, which required workers to have had at least one dose of the vaccine by Oct. 29 or they would have to go on unpaid leave. be placed.

An estimated 9,000 city workers were forced to take unpaid leave in November after the October 20 order went into effect.

The bomb vaccine mandate — announced just four days before most private sector workers leave for the holidays — begins on December 27, although the mayor says more information will be available on the initiative on December 15.

De Blasio said at a news conference Monday that the new shot mandate will apply to personal work, where any place with more than one employee on site is subject, and there will be no opt-out option for testing.

Some local business leaders have said they were “overwhelmed” by the new requirements. Others said they fear this will exacerbate the ongoing labor shortage, causing employers to lose some of their workers at a time when many are already understaffed.

Meanwhile, the vaccine requirements for indoor activities for children ages five to 11 will also come into effect in mid-December.

As of December 14, children who wish to participate in band, sports, orchestra or dance activities at school must have received at least one shot of a Covid-19 vaccine.

De Blasio’s previous vaccine mandate sparked protests across New York, where official data from the city’s Department of Health indicates that 80 percent of residents have been fully vaccinated.

The mayor had ordered all city employees, about 160,500 in all, to have at least their first shot by Oct. 29 or she would be suspended without pay.

On November 1, de Blasio said the mandate had had the desired effect. According to De Blasio, the vaccination rate for city workers has risen from 71 percent on Oct. 20 to 91 percent on Nov. 1.

Uniformed correctional officers were not included in the Oct. 20 mandate, with their union being the most vehemently anti-mandate of all and only 46 percent of workers vaccinated.

Their mandate came into effect on December 1.

Protesters are seen outside the offices of the New York City Department of Health on Dec. 6.

Vaccination rates rose to 85 percent for the New York Police Department, 88 percent for emergency medical services, 83 percent for the sanitation department and 77 percent for firefighters.

“We’ve put in the mandates over and over and they’ve worked,” de Blasio said.

But in another blow to vaccine mandates, U.S. District Judge Stan Baker ruled on Tuesday that President Joe Biden’s order requiring federal contractors to fully vaccinate employees before Jan. 18 was illegal.

Baker said Congress did not clearly authorize the president to use tenders to impose a vaccine requirement on contractors that will have “enormous economic and political significance.”

The ruling was the latest setback for Biden, who in September announced a series of measures to increase vaccination rates to fight the pandemic that is costing more than 1,000 Americans every day.
