NYC Mayor-Elect Eric Adams vowed this week to “revisit” Bill de Blasio’s vaccine mandate for all public employees after the severe restrictions put upwards of 9,000 workers on unpaid leave for refusing the injections.
“We need to revisit how we are going to address the vaccine mandates. Now, I stated I did not want to Monday-morning-quarterback the mayor. This is his time to be the man, he has to make the decisions,” Adams said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“I hope the mayor — and I am encouraging him to do that — to sit down with unions and come to a resolution,” Adams later told CNN. “And if he doesn’t, if this is still going to January, I’m going to sit down with them and we’re going to get this resolved.”
“If you know when you sit down at the table that no matter what happens, you’re going to not have to deal with what the current mayor stated, that is unfair,” he explained. “I would not want someone to do that to me as a man, and I’m not going to do it to this man. Here’s an opportunity for him to bring about a resolution and when I inherit this situation, I’m going to bring about a resolution.”
