Last week, de Blasio issued an order mandating that all New York City employees, including firefighters, police officers, first responders, and sanitation workers get the Covid injection or face termination.
Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra condemned the anti-mandate workers as “selfish”
Andrew Ansbro, president of the Uniformed Firefighter Association, said earlier this month that over half of NYC firefighters took the injection, but feared the mandate will lead to operational problems rather than more vaccinations.
“I think two weeks from now, when the day comes, we may have some serious operational difficulties when firehouses have to get closed,” Ansbro said.
“They’ll show up to the firehouses and the fire department is going to have to tell them to go home and leave the city unprotected because they tell them to leave the firehouse.”
