BREAKING: New York City will become the first big city in the U.S. to require proof of COVID-19 vaccinations for indoor activities, Mayor Bill de Blasio said. It applies to indoor dining, gyms and indoor entertainment venues.
NEW YORK (AP) — New York City will soon require proof of COVID-19 vaccinations for anyone who wants to dine indoors at a restaurant, see a performance or go to the gym, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday, making it the first big city in the U.S.
The new requirement, which will be phased in over several weeks in August and September, is the most aggressive step the city has taken yet to curb a surge in cases caused by the Delta variant. People will have to show proof that they have had at least one dose of a vaccine.
“The only way to patronize these establishments indoors will be if you’re vaccinated,” de Blasio said. “The goal here is to convince everyone that this is the time. If we’re going to stop the Delta variant, the time is now. And that means getting vaccinated right now.”
The Democrat said some details of how the program will work still need to be worked out. The policy will go into effect on Aug. 16 but inspections and enforcement won’t begin until Sept. 13, the week that the city’s public schools reopen for the fall. headtopics.com

Despite this many Florida parents say more research and data are necessary. They really don’t trust the vaccine now with fully vaccinated people getting COVID-19. I still say some protection is better than no protection. I’m fully vaccinated and feel fine. Alabama has the lowest vaccination rate of any state.
Well there goes your freedom 💁🏼♀️ 4'x3' or 4.25'x3.5', 80 lb white cardstock. Good If the vax was truly developed to help, heal and get back to 'normal' then why the threats and incentives to get it? “You have more freedom when you’re vaccinated, and you have a lot less, you have fewer choices, fewer opportunities if you’re not vaccinated.'

Minorities can’t be expected to show proof…….. It’s a racist policy! Has anyone in the City Mayors office ever heard of HIPA? And why according to all these clowns it doesn’t matter if you have the vaccine or not But yet no ID to vote🤔🙄 You should automatically assume that every blue state is going to do this. CA is probably weeks away.

This is racist LOL. Zero mention that this will disproportionately impact Blacks and Hispanics/Latinos. Pretty sure this is racist based on demographics of who is and isn’t vaccinated. Lol at all the libs who think trump and Republicans were fascists I wonder which race/demographic this will affect? Racist says what? Yeah, Dems.
If unvaccinated are becoming infected, then you should ask these mitigating factors so you don’t overlook anything which could save lives 1. Unvaccinated as answer as to why Mitigating factors 2. Could COVID-19 be transported in goods or people received days before infection? Americans are being conditioned so that they take the side of the oppressor. Do people realize that this vaccine still remains illegal because it is being issued due to a state of emergency. The real pandemic is obesity. Why isn't that being tackled?

ACLU WHERE ARE YOU? the Shake Shack coupons didn’t do the trick? And everyone wonders why NY is losing population Most foolish. Vaxed zombies infecting each other indoors. Good for them! This would not be necessary if everyone just got vaccinated! 😷💉❤️ Don't Americans understand that pandemic is a biological crisis? If it’s not taken seriously, the crisis can evolve into economic. If a nation can’t come together now for pandemic, then when and for what else? In biological crisis, give all respect to the virus and the data.
The 'peaceful' protest and violence that will result from this will FAR out way the damage COVID does to the .02% of the population it affects. If your real concern is life. Fix the crime. Don't add to it. Whole bunch of people in the comments real happy about disparately impacting minorities and the poor I had no idea so many Republicans lurked the AP’s comment section
