The potential COVID vaccine mandate and the launch of a “COVID Passport” have been a large part of political conversation over the last few months.
Now it’s officially the law of the land in New York City.
Mayor de Blasio announced on Tuesday that the city would be requiring vaccination in order for residents to participate in indoor dining, fitness, and entertainment. Vaccination status will be “proven” with NYC’s version of a passport, called “Key to NYC Pass.”

De Blasio is the first mayor to implement this aggressive strategy. At this point, it’s unclear if other liberal cities will follow.
