Governor Kathy Hochul announced a COVID-19 booster mandate for New York healthcare workers in her Friday briefing.
Healthcare employees will require a booster within two months once they become eligible for the shot.
Although the COVID-19 jab’s efficacy is useless against omicron, Hochul’s brilliant solution is more experimental shots for healthcare workers.
The prior COVID-19 jab mandate has created a staffing shortage across New York State, and a mandated booster will only exacerbate the problem.
And the requirement to take another dangerous injection will put healthcare workers at risk of developing adverse reactions.

Healthcare workers will need to receive a booster shot within two weeks of being eligible for one.
There will be no exemptions nor a test-out option, Gov. Hochul said in a briefing on Friday. https://t.co/FXYM5MXnuz

NY's medical facilities are already understaffed. Kathy Hochul’s last vaccine mandate for healthcare workers & resulting firings made the crisis worse. Now, she’s exacerbating the problem by requiring COVID booster shots. ENOUGH with the threats, mandates, fines & firings!

Northwell Health, New York’s largest health care provider, praised Governor Hochul for her tyrannical decision to mandate COVID-19 boosters:

“Getting boosted is a common sense move. We do not want people to keep having breakthroughs. Thank you to all healthcare workers who have been keeping this state safe,” said Hochul at a press briefing.
The new mandate calls for all New York healthcare workers to get a COVID booster within two months of eligibility.
“We had a mandate that healthcare workers be vaccinated that went into effect a few months ago. And it was an extraordinary accomplishment,” said Hochul.
“I want to thank all the health care workers and their employers for getting us to do the right thing and getting people to understand that it’s the best way to protect themselves and to protect the people they care for… That’s why it’s time and important to now protect people and the workers, and to protect the integrity of our healthcare system. Because they work with our most vulnerable New Yorkers, we need to make sure that our healthcare workers are now boosted. … You would want to make sure that anyone taking care of you is fully protected.”
Hochul claims the first COVID-19 jab mandate for healthcare workers was an extraordinary accomplishment.
The mandate helped New York obliterate its record-high case numbers in recent weeks.
While Hochul pushes propaganda that the COVID-19 jabs are safe and effective, there’s no proof they slow the spread.
Despite the dramatic surge, Hochul’s solution is another COVID-19 injection that will wane over a few months whenever the next mutation arises.
But New York healthcare workers can say no if they want to end the perpetual booster cycle.
