Federal judges rule New York City CAN force its 7,500 unvaccinated teachers to have COVID shot as critics warn it'll cause staff shortages and Mayor Bill de Blasio warns educators to have shot by Friday or face the ax

Thousands of New York City public school teachers face the prospect of being fired by the end of Friday after a panel of federal judges allowed the administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio to impose a vaccine mandate.

A federal appeals panel on Monday gave the nation's largest school district the green light to require all employees of city public schools to get vaccinated - or lose their jobs.

Lawyers for teachers who sued to stop the city's policy now say they'll ask the US Supreme Court to intervene. The New York Department of Education employs 148,000 school workers, including 75,000 teachers.
