Phoenix pauses COVID-19 vaccine mandate for city employees after federal court ruling

Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego

By KTAR.COM

 The city of Phoenix announced Tuesday it will pause the requirement that city employees be vaccinated against COVID-19 by Jan. 18 following a federal court ruling temporarily blocking a requirement for all federal contract workers to get the shot.

Phoenix announced in November it would be mandating employees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Jan. 18, citing an executive order from President Joe Biden requiring compliance as a federal contractor.

Employees, regardless of telework status or a previous positive COVID-19 test, would have had to submit proof of vaccination unless a religious or medical accommodation was granted or be subject to progressive discipline up to and including termination.

Tucson approved a similar ordinance last month, requiring city employees to receive at least one shot or an approved accommodation by Dec. 1 or be subject to termination.
