New York City’s COVID-19 vaccination passports disproportionately disadvantage black communities and it isn’t even close.
Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the city’s plan to implement COVID-19 vaccination requirements for gyms, restaurants and other businesses.
“It’s time for people to see vaccination as necessary to living a good and full and healthy life,” de Blasio said during a news conference.
Beginning on Sept. 13, New York City citizens will be forced to show either their “Key to NYC Pass” or the state’s “Excelsior Pass” if they wish to enter the aforementioned businesses.
“It will require vaccination for workers and customers in indoor dining, in indoor fitness facilities, indoor entertainment facilities,” the mayor said.
