NYC mandates proof of COVID-19 vaccine for indoor activities, New Yorkers react



New York City will become the first major U.S. city to require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for customers and staff at restaurants, gyms and other indoor businesses as the country enters a new phase of battling the highly-contagious Delta variant.

The announcement is the latest in a string of initiatives aimed at encouraging more residents to get vaccinated as the Delta variant spreads in the nation’s most populous city.

New Yorkers reacted to the update on Tuesday.

About 60 per cent of all New Yorkers have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to city data. But certain areas, largely poor communities and communities of colour, have lower vaccination rates.

The policy will be enforced starting Sept. 13. It is similar to measures taken in France to curtail the spread of the coronavirus.

As part of the initiative, the city is creating the “Key to NYC Pass” to provide proof of vaccination to workers and patrons at fitness centers, restaurants and entertainment venues, the mayor said.

  1. DID you know that the White House staff are not required to get the vaccine.. But then they’re forcing it on as. People wake up!!! doesn’t this say something to you our elective officials they’re not required to get this vaccine so they get to choose and we don’t. Don’t let them control what goes into your body say no to mandates!!!!!

  2. At this point the world just needs to come to an end not to be so “gloomy” but humans are really acting like they’re in charge, you can’t stop death no matter how it happens that’s how it’s meant to be. The world lacks love and peace everything is about money and it’s extremely sad

  3. I thought the key to NYC was to pay my taxes every year. Now they wanna take away my choice? I already pay the government too much. Tell me what vaccine u had to take 3 times in order for it to be effective?

  4. I canceled my membership at gym Bcs this guy forcing mandatory vaccines. This guy is terrible and breaking freedom rules and civil rights

  5. If you’re one of those idiots that trust your government, just ask yourself “ how is the trust toward their government of the stranded Americans in Afghanistan”.

  6. I've been contacted about a dozen times in the UK, to offer me the vaccine. SMS from the NHS, my GP, letters from the NHS. They couldn't give a crap about me when I needed medical treatment last year but when they want to force something on me they know where to find me. No, f off.

  7. Disgusting. I will not be forced to take medical treatment I do not need. I was planning a trip to NYC but will instead be spending my money elsewhere. Don't be fooled, people. They are talking about autumn boosters, this is going to become a twice a year thing for the rest of our lives. In 2028 you'll be told: "Sorry, you missed booster 12, you're not allowed in this diner/barber/supermarket/school/hospital."

  8. Do they own us?? , or did we Vote for them ? He, Needs to get RECALLED.
    We have our own Taliban, you think Not ? When one group expects the other to Do what they want ! It is about CONTROL one over the other, by fear, shame, guilt, segregation,threats, repercussions, getting terminated from work, excluding from locations. It is like the Taliban . If You say just take the Shot, then the people complaining about the Taliban should just join the Taliban , or the ones complaining and escaping Communist societies should just be part of it. It is the same in all 3 examples . It is One group abuse over the others Freedom to All !!!!!!

  9. I used to love going to NYC. Glad I got my full. I won’t be patronizing that place until freedom is restored.

  10. You will need an ID to work out, go to a restaurant to eat, but voter ID is racist? The Dems are out of their f—ing minds! Pure evil and greed!

  11. People forgot the mass shooting in the USA and these same politicians didn't make the people safe. To this day these demons never solved the gun violence that plague the nation but the people are still believing these politicians is going to save them. I will pray for you!🙏🏾🙏🏾

  12. This is what the government been doing for years. People are more concern with their pleasure instead of their freedom. Remember pleasure is only for a moment.

  13. A 64 year old man from University of Washington was removed off the waiting list to get a heart transplant because he's not vaccinated. And he's been on the waiting list for over 2 years.

  14. I'm It’s not about a virus its about global takeover by the elite….come on wake up you lot…the PCR was just the tool used so they could produce FEAR across the globe ready for the genocidal jab….its not a vaccine….the PCR only picks up debris in the system of the human body which is why you can PCR test your dog, the pavement, an apple banana etc etc and they’ll come back positive……if your not awake now you never will be….. 0 0

  15. So no medical exceptions for people who are advised against getting vaccine by their doctor due to preexisting conditions?

  16. This is outrageous!!! No difference than the flu or pneumonia. It’s not going away and need to live with it. This is pure communism! Divide and put people in factions! Disgusting!
