New York City, the Department of Veteran Affairs and the state of California announced plans Monday to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for many of their employees, a shift in how the country is seemingly dealing with vaccine hesitancy after months of campaigning to the public then offering money and prizes when vaccination levels dipped.
In New York and California, the mandate comes with the option of wearing a mask and receiving testing at least once a week if a worker does not want to be vaccinated. The VA did not offer another option for its medical employees.
The announcements, including in the most populated city and state in the country, came as the more infectious delta variant continues its spread across the country, leading to spikes, outbreaks and the reinstallment of some COVID restrictions in certain areas. More
