“Along these lines, assuming we get another variation that is risky and we tell New Yorkers, ‘This is how we should keep the city open and save lives,’ individuals won’t approach us in a serious way,” he said.
“That can’t happen.”
Adams likewise demanded that the order was “not with regards to end, it’s with regards to vaccination” but rather added, “Those regions that we want to supplant, we will supplant.”
Adams said he regarded the specialists engaged with last-ditch legitimate endeavors to hinder the order, yet entirely noticed that “at the present time, the rule that everyone must follow is that you need to get vaccinated.”
