I knew COVID-19 Vaccine Passports were inevitable in the United States.
The only question was which city or state would be first to make the announcement.
And the winner is NYC.
On Tuesday, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced COVID-19 Vaccine Passports for NYC that resemble what governments in France, Italy, Greece, and other European nations passed in recent weeks.
Previously, NYC vaccine segregation was confined to large concerts and sporting events.
But starting in September, Medical Jim Crow expands to gyms, restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, and more.
From De Blasio’s press conference:
BREAKING: NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio is mandating vaccines for workers and customers.
The mandate applies to:
– Indoor dining
– Indoor fitness
– Indoor entertainment & performances

I heard that loud and clear.
If you refuse to be a Big Pharma lab rat, then you are a second-class citizen in NYC.
That’s the message to New Yorkers and tourists in the Big Apple.
For any business that complies with this tyrannical policy, they deserve to shut down.
The NYC vaccine mandate has nothing to do with public health and everything to do with the tyrants seeing what will break your will.
Any business going along with this deserves to go bankrupt.https://t.co/rQAe0fQv26

NYC is going to mandate vaccines for businesses
Don’t get fake vaccine cards

So is Mayor de Blasio ushering in a new Jim Crow law in NYC by banning blacks from restaurants via vaccine passports? Most black New Yorkers are not vaccinated.https://t.co/iXA8aDR5Nv

How the fu** does this protect people who aren’t at risk from COVID?! And if you are at risk and got the vaccine, then what are you worried about?! Insane tyrants.
NYC to mandate proof of vaccination for many indoor settings https://t.co/k5pJNreV70

De Blasio has taken the giant leap to full-blown tyranny.
With this latest decree, it’s the final test to see if New Yorkers are forever brainwashed, subservient sheep.
The New York Post reported:
New York City is mandating proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter certain indoor businesses — including all indoor restaurants, entertainment venues and gyms, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday.
“It’s time for people to see vaccination as necessary to living a good and full and healthy life,” de Blasio said during his daily press briefing.
“This is crucial, because we know that this will encourage a lot more vaccination.”
The program, which de Blasio dubbed the “Key to NYC Pass,” makes New York the first major US city to create such a mandate, and marks a significant escalation of the city’s efforts to curb the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases driven by the Delta variant. The initiative will launch on Aug. 16, the mayor said.
“It will require vaccination for workers and customers in indoor dining, in indoor fitness facilities, indoor entertainment facilities,” he said from City Hall. “The only way to patronize these businesses indoors is if you’re vaccinated.”
“If you want to participate in society fully, you’ve got to get vaccinated,” de Blasio added.
Enforcement will begin on Sept. 13, following a public service announcement campaign, de Blasio said. Entry will be denied to anyone without a shot.
Politico also reported:
The new program to “unlock New York City” will begin Aug. 16, with enforcement set to start Sept. 13, according to City Hall. Enforcement will fall to the city health department and businesses could be fined, though the details still need to be worked out in the coming weeks, the mayor said.
“When someone is vaccinated, they can do all the amazing things in New York City,” de Blasio said Tuesday. “If you’re unvaccinated, unfortunately you will not be able to participate in many things. … This is crucial, because we know this will encourage a lot more vaccination.”
De Blasio’s announcement marks one of the most aggressive steps taken by an elected official to combat a rise in Covid-19 cases caused by the Delta variant. In late July, the mayor mandated that unvaccinated city hospital workers and clinical staff at the city health department submit to a weekly Covid-19 test — a move first reported by POLITICO — and that city employment for new hires is contingent on vaccination.
An official described the move as just a first step toward a wider vaccine requirement in the nation’s biggest city.
“The mayor is now 100 percent [on board] and aggressively pushing vaccine certification,” said a City Hall official familiar with the discussions, who asked for anonymity to speak ahead of the formal announcement. “[De Blasio] wants it for everything indoors — public and private — but obviously has to scale implementation and expects a lot of pushback.”
The official added that New York City wants to “lead the nation in this regard.” The move is believed to be the first of its kind in the nation for a big city.
The policy comes as de Blasio has faced criticism for not reinstating mask-wearing mandates amid a recent spike in cases, but he has insisted the city’s focus has to be on vaccination. On Monday, Rep. Adriano Espaillat and CityCouncil Member Mark Levine, who chairs the health committee, called for a similar proposal to the one being rolled out Tuesday.
De Blasio is on his way out later in 2021.
This is his final death blow to murder NYC.
The wicked policy of COVID-19 Vaccine Passports will unlikely entice many people to receive the experimental jabs.
It will cause division, business closures, and a mass exit of more residents.
If there’s no resistance, NYC is dead!
