DOE Vaccine Mandate

Vaccine Mandate Now Effective October 4 for DOE. Notice from the Chancellor of NYC Public Schools, Meisha Porter.

The Second Circuit dissolved the temporary injunction placed on the vaccine mandate. A hearing was originally scheduled for this Wednesday, but the court made the decision to rule on the mandate today.  

This means that the DOE staff vaccine mandate can now go into effect. The DOE will begin implementing the staff vaccine mandate on Monday, October 4

Here is what this means for active staff who have not yet submitted their vaccination proof: 

  • You must report to work this week, and upload a proof of negative COVID test result in the DOE Vaccination Portal
  • You must submit your proof of vaccination by 11:59pm on Friday, October 1 in the DOE Vaccination Portal (unless you have an approved exemption). 
  • You will be removed from payroll beginning Monday, October 4 if you are not vaccinated by end of day Friday, October 1. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to your supervisor.  

Thank you again for you again for all you do in service of our students.
