Will NYC Public Schools Require Students to Get the COVID-19 Vaccine?
The most telling part of the mandate is that enforcement of the COVID vaccine requirement goes into effect on September 13, 2021 – THE SAME DAY AS THE START OF NYC PUBLIC SCHOOL.
As of right now, no guidelines have been released at all.
It seems once again, even with a new chancellor, the guidelines will be released last minute. We can only speculate that the requirements will be strict and leave many New Yorkers upset and likely even more opting for private schools.
