New York City police union threatens legal action over de Blasio vaccine mandate

The mayor announced the requirement Wednesday, pitting himself against public employees, including police officers and firefighters who have refused to get the shots. De Blasio gave municipal employees until Nov. 1 to get their first vaccine shot. 

As an incentive, he said those who receive a dose by Oct. 29 would get an extra $ 500 in their paycheck.
