Vaccine mandate takes effect in NYC for municipal workers

Mayor Eric Adams is ready to fire up to 3,000 workers city workers who missed the deadline to get vaccinated.
The vaccine mandate for municipal workers was put in place by former Mayor Bill de Blasio, but the Adams administration is following through with it.
Termination notices are in the mail and take effect today, targeting city workers who have been on leave without pay for declining to obey the city's vaccine mandate.
Unions are still trying to block the move.
Meanwhile, the state's highest court dismissed another motion to overturn the order that has since been partially lifted.
A final ruling on whether the governor had the authority to enact a mandate in the first place is still pending.
