And so it begins…. New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio has announced the forced vaccination of all 340,000 municipal employees effective September 13, 2021. Mandatory vaccinations for a virus with over a 99.85% survival rate? This is not about a virus, this is about control. Last week, de Blasio made his support for vaccine mandates clear and urged private employers to implement them for their own employees, saying the rule will “get more people vaccinated.” “We have reached the limits of a purely voluntary system. It’s time for more mandates, different kinds, different places, different approaches,” de Blasio said in an interview with WNYC Friday. The mayor reiterated that tone during today’s press conference, telling private employers to “go as far as you can go right now.” “Each private sector employer needs to do what they believe is right. But I would strongly urge a vaccination mandate whenever possible or as close to it as possible. At minimum, requiring all of your employees to get vaccinated or to do weekly testing,” he said.
