A state mandate for all nursing home workers to get their COVID shots by September 27th isn't convincing about 18 % still refusing to get vaccinated.

The New York Post reports data shows Brooklyn with the lowest staff vaccination rates in the five boroughs at 77 % , but some individual nursing homes are recording numbers below that. Under the mandate, employees could be disciplined or fired for refusing to get vaccinated which could create a shortage of nursing home workers.
