NO JAB, NO JOB: Big Apple Mayor Fires Another 200 City Workers for Refusing COVID Vaccine

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has fired more city workers for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to a report from The Daily Wire, 200 more city workers have been fired for failing to vax, bringing the total number of firings up to 1,752 workers.

The city did not specify where the cuts were made.

Six months ago, Adams laid off over 1,500 government employees who refused to comply with the city’s vaccine mandate Feb 11 deadline. Such employees who were let go included 914 in the Department of Education, 36 in the New York Police Department, and 25 others from the city’s fire department.

“City workers served on the frontlines during the pandemic, and by getting vaccinated, they are, once again, showing how they are willing to do the right thing to protect themselves and all New Yorkers,” Adams said in a statement earlier this year.

Just after Adams terminated the unvaxxed city staff, he faced backlash from police and fire associations.

NBC New York reported Andrew Ansbro, president of the Uniformed Firefighters Association of Greater New York, who once estimated up to 500 firefighters would face the risk of termination due to their refusal to comply with the mandate, called out the mayor for exempting New York City-based professional athletes and performers from the citywide mandate.

“If you’re gonna force people to get vaccinated because the science changes, you also have to acknowledge that you’re allowing people to have exceptions because the science changes, and it’s no longer necessary,” Ansbro said.
