Bill de Blasio on Friday urged all private employers to make vaccinations against COVID-19 compulsory, calling on them to do the ‘maximum you feel you can do’ as the nation is roiled by early signs of a resurgent pandemic.
The mayor of New York City told WNYC radio that he wanted the private sector to do more.
‘If anyone is asking my advice, particularly large employers, move toward vaccine mandates now,’ de Blasio said.
‘I urge every employer to go to any form of mandate that you’re comfortable with.’
On Wednesday he announced that workers in public hospitals and clinics would, from August, be compelled to get vaccinated or submit to weekly testing for the virus.
