Mayor de Blasio to announce COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all city workers

Mayor de Blasio is set to announce a coronavirus vaccine requirement for all municipal employees Wednesday, The Post has learned.

The city workers — including firefighters and cops — will have to get their first shot by Nov. 1, sources told The Post.

Currently, only Department of Education staff are required to be vaccinated, but de Blasio has long considered extending the mandate to all 300,000 city workers.

The current vaccination rate among the city’s workforce stands at about 83 percent. That number is significantly lower among cops and firefighters.

The NYPD has a vaccination rate of 69 percent among its 55,000 cops
