US. Authorities in New York City, to tighten COVID-19 vaccination requirements as of Jan. 29.

Authorities in New York City plan to tighten the municipality’s COVID-19 vaccination requirements. Effecting Jan. 29, all persons aged five and above will be required to show proof of full vaccination in order to enter any indoor dining establishment, indoor fitness facility, indoor entertainment venue, or certain meeting spaces. Full vaccination is defined as having received both doses of a two-injection vaccine or one of the single-injection Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The full vaccination requirement currently applies only to individuals aged 12 and above, with children between the ages of 5-11 only requiring proof of one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

New York City also requires employers to verify that all employees who perform in-person work are vaccinated. Such workers must have received at least one dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine and have a maximum of 45 days to obtain the second dose. More information here
