New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio addressed his ongoing vaccine mandates on CNN Thursday night; saying people will get the injections if their “paychecks depend on it.”
“I believe with enough leadership, enough mandates, we can get a hell of a lot more people vaccinated. The more people are vaccinated, the more we make a transition to a time when COVID is in the background, not the foreground,” said the outgoing mayor.
“Human beings are predictable. If you say, ‘Your paycheck depends on it,’ people will make the practical decision and they’ll go and get vaccinated,” he added.
