Appointed in court by Sotomayor President Obama In 2009, New York City rejected a challenge from teachers who were trying to order vaccinations by the end of October 1 or put them on unpaid leave until September 2022.
Sotomayor denied the emergency request without explanation or directing the request to a full court for review.
Sotomayor’s decision follows the same course of action as her court colleague, Justice Amy Connie Barrett, who Rejected In August, Indiana appealed for an emergency from university students and allowed the school to proceed with mandatory vaccinations.
In an interview with Spectrum News 1, the mayor said public school staff should receive at least the first dose of the vaccine by 5 p.m., Oct. 1.
“If you don’t get that first dose on Friday, at 5pm, we’ll assume you don’t come to work on Monday and you won’t get paid from Monday, and we’ll fill your role with an alternate or alternate employee.” Said.
De Blasio said the vaccine requirement goes into effect October 4. Basically and all teachers and school staff were expected to be partially vaccinated by Monday.
“Vaccination is our strongest tool in the fight against covid-19 – a decision that is on the right side of the law and will protect our students and staff,” the city’s education department said in a statement.
The mayor said about 87% of employees in the education department have already received at least one dose, including 90% teachers and 97% headmasters.
