*Sign our petition against vaccine mandates for educators HERE
Never in history have New York teachers been required to submit medical records to their employer, until now.
Is this legal?
Under Cuomo’s Emergency Powers, he can do virtually whatever he wants (unless it breaks federal law).
Here is what EO 202.95 says regarding teachers and the COVID vaccine:
- A teacher employed by a P-12 school (public or non-public) or school district must report that they have received a COVID-19 vaccination to their employing school or school district upon request of the district for purposes of Department of Health reporting only. Nothing contained within this directive shall be read as requiring any teacher to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
- Commencing Wednesday February 24, 2021 and every Friday thereafter, every school and school district shall report to the Department of Health, on a weekly basis, in a form and manner to be determined by the Department, the number of completed COVID-19 vaccinations reported in the prior week, as well as the number and percentage of teachers instructing students in-person during the prior week. Such weekly report shall include any other data elements as the Commissioner of Health determines to be appropriate to track in-person instruction in such schools and school districts.
