the only option to enjoy the Big Apple


“They tell them it’s badI think that’s one thing ridiculous”.

This is the to sense of hundreds of residents in the city of New York already vaccinated before increase in cases by Delta variant, especially in people who have refused to be inoculated.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) they called her the ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated’.

That is why the Big Apple becomes the first city in the United States to demand a immunization certificate under the ‘Key to NYC Pass’ program to access closed spaces in restaurants, gyms, bars, entertainment centers and government offices.

You cannot enter without having the card, it will hurt the restaurant a bit also because 100 percent of the people are not vaccinated, many fear it, “said Rogelio, a control officer at a restaurant.

I agree that it is mandatory because that is how those of us who have the vaccine protect ourselves, ”said Rafi, another resident.

The ordinance applies to both employees and customers and more and more private companies such as coffee shop chains and meat processors are joining Mayor Bill de Blasio’s initiative.

It will be a requirement to have the vaccine to visit indoor spaces such as restaurants, bars, gyms and other places, this is a bold and necessary action ”, declared the mayor.

In establishments there are warning signs to indicate that only vaccinated people can enter or that those who are not use a mask.

There is a violation of civil rights of course because a government cannot make decisions for you, but thinking about it as a community, it is necessary and important that there be a collective conscience, you have to take care of yourself to take care of others ”, said José, a resident of the big Apple.

The vaccination controls will require presenting the paper of the dose as proof and although there is nothing official digital, the state application ‘Excelsior pass’ compares with the medical records that people were vaccinated, while the application ‘NYC Covid Safe’ stores the photo of the immunization certificate.

Although there are already an average of 2.5 million people who use them, they present disadvantages especially due to the personal information required for the first and because in the case of the second, anyone can pretend to be vaccinated, as in the case of this cat. who got the green light on his immunization.

For now I only have my card that they gave me when they gave me the vaccine ”, commented Karla, who is already vaccinated.

Only vaccines approved by the World Health Organization will be accepted, but details on how they will be verified are not yet known.

It is also not known if those with medical and religious exceptions will be accepted in these places.

Children under the age of 12 who are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine do not need to present proof, but will need to wear a mask.

It seems very good to me, it seems like a good measure because that way we all take care of ourselves “, declared Ricardo Torres, a tourist.

Many companies are also choosing to hire ‘covid-19 security personnel’, who will monitor compliance with protection protocols and take care of monitoring their staff for symptoms.
