New York City police officers who don’t get vaccinated by the end of next week — are now facing termination. That’s according to a new letter from the Sergeants Benevolent Association.

New hires who haven’t shown proof of a second dose and those placed on unpaid leave for not initially complying with the October mandate, have until Feb. 11 to get vaccinated.

The NYPD is expected to notify those officers in jeopardy of losing their jobs on Monday.

While it’s unclear how many cops could be affected, about 5,000 officers have formally requested religious and medical exemptions to the vaccine.
