The Challenge: Mayor Adams’ resolution to fireside greater than 1,400 authorities employees for not getting the jab.
I used to be profoundly moved by Diane Pagen’s story relating to her expertise being arbitrarily fired from her job as a public-school social employee as a result of COVID vaccine mandate (“You Suffer, Too,” Feb. 17).
I’ve a fundamental query: Since this mandate was imposed by former Mayor Invoice de Blasio in October, and since he stands out as the metropolis’s worst mayor ever and incorrect on most every thing he stood for, and since we now know that this isn’t the pandemic of the un-vaccinated as these beforehand vaccinated may also nonetheless be contaminated, why can’t Mayor Adams, merely concern a brand new directive that ends the vaccine mandate for all metropolis employees?

Adams says the vaccine mandate is unfair to Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets. That’s solely the tip of the iceberg with all metropolis workers and companies given an ultimatum to get vaccinated or no job.

Now us vaccinated individuals can now really feel secure. Town promised to fireside all employees who refused to be jabbed. The exact same individuals who labored by the worst of the pandemic and have survived to date.
Isn’t it ironic, although, that 1000’s on the Tremendous Bowl screamed, rooted, hollered and had been pleased being seen, when all largely unmasked? I assume they held their breath in order that they wouldn’t unfold this endemic.
Administrations could change, however the calls for and instructions don’t.
Adams has determined to get robust and make an instance of a number of the most vile people town is aware of: The over 1,400 authorities employees fired for not getting the vaccine. Instantaneously, our metropolis grew safer.
I’m wondering what number of, like myself, have double pure immunity and the — physician’s phrases right here — optimum degree attainable of antibodies.
Doesn’t matter if these workers had exemplary careers. Conform now and grow to be a de facto science experiment for power-hungry tyrants.
When the gasoline nozzle clicks when filling your automobile signaling it’s full, do you retain pumping? No, proper. That might be irrational, silly and will presumably trigger hurt.
I’m a vaccinated New York Metropolis high-school instructor; my husband is on unpaid go away as an unvaccinated instructor with an impressive spiritual exemption enchantment and a pending courtroom case over the failure of the Metropolis to supply a 3020a listening to, in keeping with State tenure legal guidelines.
After I determined to vaccinate, Rachel Maddow of CNN and others assured us that “a vaccinated particular person will get uncovered to the virus, the virus doesn’t infect them, the virus can’t then use that particular person to go wherever else. It can’t use a vaccinated particular person as a bunch to go get extra individuals.”
My husband and I had COVID this January. It affected us no in a different way. Belief is gone amongst lots of the vaccinated.
When will we ever select to get vaccinated once more? When will we ever vote Democrat once more, if it’s the celebration of mandates, not private alternative? Who will work and reside within the metropolis if individuals earn much less, pay extra, really feel much less secure and lose energy over their very own bodily choices?

Is there anybody in New York politics who hasn’t misplaced their collective minds and may admit the foolishness of firing individuals based mostly on whether or not they obtained the vaccination?
Truthfully, to resolve to vaccinate or not is a private alternative and HIPAA legal guidelines ought to apply.
That is insanity.
