As previously reported, NYC Mayor Eric Adams fired municipal workers who refused to be Big Pharma lab rats.
The list included over 900 employees from the Department of Education.
Adams exempted athletes and performers from the citywide COVID-19 jab mandate for public and private sector employees.
His excuse for the exemption was to place New York City-based athletes and performers on a “level playing field.”
“This is about putting New York City-based performers on a level playing field,” he said.
“Hometown players had an unfair disadvantage.”
However, Adams ignorantly ignores the unfair advantage rich athletes have over working-class New Yorkers.
While NBA and MLB players can play unvaccinated, NYC teachers and other blue-collar workers cannot support their families without being a guinea pig.
Now, some NYC teachers face accusations of using fraudulent COVID-19 jab cards to retain their jobs.
“Fraudulent vaccination cards are not only illegal, they also undermine the best line of protection our schools have against COVID-19 — universal adult vaccination,” a spokesperson of the Education Department said in a statement.
“We immediately moved to put these employees — fewer than 100 — on leave without pay,” DOE added.
“I’m really disappointed to learn there were fake vaccination cards. Not only is it illegal, it undermines our entire trust,” Mayor Adams said in a statement.
“I’m really disappointed to learn that there were fake vaccination cards" allegedly submitted by DOE employees. “Not only is that illegal, it undermines our entire trust.”

ABC News reported:
Dozens of New York City Education Department employees are being placed on unpaid leave as of Monday for submitting fake coronavirus vaccine cards.
“Fewer than 100″ employees submitted the fake vaccination cards, the DOE said Friday. A union official estimated about 70 employees were impacted.
The United Federation of Teachers, the union representing educators in the city, is preparing to challenge the move, saying some teachers claim they were wrongly accused and placing them on unpaid leave violates “the basic notion of due process.”
“It is wholly improper for the DOE to unilaterally remove UFT members from the payroll based on mere conjecture that vaccination documentation is fraudulent,” Beth A. Norton, general counsel for UFT, wrote in a letter to the city.
“The UFT demands that the DOE immediately rescind the aforementioned notices and confirm by the close of business April 22, 2022 that the affected UFT bargaining unit members will remain on the payroll on April 25, 2022 and thereafter,” the letter added. “Should the DOE fail to comply with this demand and the due process procedures, the UFT is prepared to initiate litigation to challenge the DOE’s improper actions.”
As the New York Post noted, Mayor Adams will retain the COVID-19 jab mandate for city workers while exempting athletes and performers.
Mayor Eric Adams on Friday said he is “not at all” considering nixing the COVID-19 vaccine requirement for city workers — including dozens of school employees who allegedly submitted fake proof of vaccination.
On Monday, the U.S Supreme Court decided not to hear the lawsuit filed by four New York City public school teachers who got fired or placed on unpaid leave for rejecting the experimental COVID-19 shots.
