[New York] … “It’s time for people to see vaccination as necessary to living a good and full and healthy life,” de Blasio said during his daily press briefing.
“This is crucial, because we know that this will encourage a lot more vaccination.”
The program, which de Blasio dubbed the “Key to NYC Pass,” makes New York the first major US city to create such a mandate, and marks a significant escalation of the city’s efforts to curb the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases driven by the Delta variant. The initiative will launch on Aug. 16, the mayor said.
