Bill de Blasio Pushes for "Vax" Passport for Subway Travel
It’s not clear where de Blasio got the “vaccine mandates work” idea, as the most vaccinated countries faced a staggering rise of Covid-19 cases and associated pneumonia deaths.
Nevertheless, yesterday's Twitter post contains an alarming call to subjugate the population of New York and not allow people to access the subway without a vaccine shot.
In his address to the 57th Governor of New York, Kathy Hochul, de Blasio calls to institute an MTA vaccine mandate.
We know vaccine mandates work — New York City is proof of that. Now let's go even further.— Mayor Bill de Blasio (@NYCMayor) November 23, 2021
I'm urging @GovKathyHochul to institute an MTA vaccine mandate. Let's do what we can to keep our city, our residents, and our workforce safe.
Many commentators have drawn attention to the fact that the government are not instituting an internal passport with conditions for free movement around the city. Because it will lead to more skirmishes between NYPD and city residents.
