New York City is the first to give a vaccination-only option to school employees - and Greenburgh may be the first municipality in the area to follow its lead.
Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner tells News 12 he has been pushing for a vaccination mandate for some time now, but board officials hesitated, asking for more time to assess data about the vaccines.
However, with the new FDA approval for the Pfizer vaccine, he is going to start pushing back again tomorrow at 4:30 p.m. during a public meeting to enforce a vaccine mandate for all town employees.
"Whatever the federal and state laws allow us to do, I'm going to be recommending to the town board that we do the maximum," says Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner.
At this point, no county official in the area says they are considering a vaccine mandate at this time.
Instead, they are going to encourage vaccinations.
