New York City will require proof of vaccination for people

New York City residents and visitors will be required to show proof of vaccination for indoor dining, gyms, and shows, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday.

The mayor is calling the city's vaccines passport 'Key to NYC Pass'.

This is a magical place, filled with wonders, de Blasio said about the city. If you open the door, that is gonna open up to you. If you are unvaccinated, you won't be able to participate in many things. It's time for people to start drinking an essential vaccine. This is vital to living a healthy, healthy life.

De Blasio said New York City is the first to take this approach. It will start Aug. 16 and be implemented from Sept. 13 onwards.

The mayor, as well as many other cities across the country and the world, has been trying to incentivize individuals to get COVID-19 vaccination as the Delta variant continues to spread and claim lives. The proof-of - vaccination announcement follows last week's announcement regarding a $100 cash incentive for vaccinations. The cash incentive has proven effective so far, with over 11,000 individuals receiving their first dose of the vaccination in the four days since the program started. We're now at this point that we dreamed of, and we're going to go even further with a smart mix of incentives and mandates, he said. The World Wide Web will use every tool we've got to end the delta variant and fight the COVID era once and for all.
