Coronavirus vaccines for NYPD cops delayed but city firefighters start inoculations

New York City police officers were told that COVID-19 vaccinations would begin for the NYPD on December 29, 2020, but this did not happen. No reason was given for the delay, and no date for vaccines has been given to the department.

When asked why, Mayor de Blasio claimed to be waiting for state guidance, reports Anthony M. DeStefano for Newsday.

COVID vaccines have begun for the FDNY. No explanation was forthcoming about why.

Eight NYPD police officers and 40 civilian members of the NYPD have died of COVID-19.
