FDNY prepares to close 20% of fire companies — and pull a fifth of ambulances — as COVID vaccine deadline looms

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared last week that all city workers, including firefighters and cops, have to get their first COVID vaccine dose by 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 29.

The mayor's mandate, the deadline for which was extended following ongoing disputes with workers' unions, also ordered that city employees who fail to start their vaccine regimen by Nov. 1 will be put on unpaid leave until they can give proof of vaccination, the New York Post reported.
