The COVID-19 vaccination requirement for indoor public spaces in New York City will extend to kids ages 5 to 11 starting Tuesday.
Parents will have to show proof that their child has received at least one dose of the vaccine before entering certain indoor places. If they don’t have proof, this means dining inside restaurants is off limits.
This is the next step in Mayor Bill de Blasio's Key to NYC initiative, which did not impact younger kids until this week.
The rule will be enforced whenever children enter any indoor gyms, entertainment venues and restaurants.
While this could pose a challenge for some families against vaccinating their kids, some residents told News 12 they understand the need.
