A growing number of employers, government agencies, institutions, restaurants and entertainment venues are mandating COVID-19 vaccines in response to the delta variant, which continues to drive elevated case numbers, and as portions of the population remain unvaccinated against the virus.

In his most forceful pandemic actions and words, President Joe Biden announced sweeping new federal vaccine requirements affecting as many as 100 million Americans.

"Our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us," he said, speaking to the roughly 80 million Americans who are not yet vaccinated.

In New York City, proof of vaccination is already required to participate in most indoor activities including employment, exercise and entertainment. Mayor Bill de Blasio has also mandated all city public school workers get vaccinated, and other city employees including police officers must get vaccinated or undergo weekly testing.

The state has mandated vaccination for all health care workers and locally, many colleges have also rolled out mandates for in-person students, too.

Here is a list of federal, state and local mandates, as well as employers, restaurants, schools, and theaters in New York, including Long Island, that have issued vaccine requirements. We'll continue to update this list.
