Supreme Court justice axes appeal of NYC school vaccine plan

Source: AP

NEW YORK (AP) — Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Friday denied an emergency appeal from a group of teachers to block New York City’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for public school teachers and other staff from going into effect.

The teachers had filed for the injunction with Sotomayor on Thursday, in an effort to keep the mandate from going into effect Friday.

Under the mandate rules, the roughly 148,000 school employees had until 5 p.m. Friday to get at least their first vaccine shot. Those who didn’t face suspension without pay when schools open on Monday.

In a statement, Georgia Pestana, the city’s corporation counsel, said, “We are gratified by Justice Sotomayor’s decision. She made the right call on the law and in the best interest of students and educators.”

2. Fantastic!!!!!

And Newsom just ordered all CA school staff and student be vaxxed in today's state mandate! This comes 3 days after San Diego School Board did the same despite many protesters. Newsom won 62% - 38% in the recall.
