NYC Teachers Accused of Fake Vax Cards Get Their Jobs Back

The New York City Department of Education (DOE) put 82 teachers who allegedly avoided the city’s vaccine mandate by obtaining fake vaccine cards back on the payroll pending an internal probe.

On April 25, the DOE placed the 82 teachers on indefinite leave without pay after discovering that they had purchased fake vaccination cards from a Long Island pediatric clinic. 

Several who spoke to The Post on condition of anonymity insisted they did get the covid vaccine but paid fees for a “detox treatment” to offset any adverse reaction.

The clinic raked in $1.5 million before authorities made arrests. 

A lawsuit was filed by the DOE last month to keep the alleged cheats on paid suspension. The United Federation of Teachers claimed that doing so was improper because no guilt was proven.

The DOE finally bowed last week and announced that the exiled teachers would be reinstated on the city payroll on September 6, the first day of the new school year.

An internal memo stated:

“Upon your return, the DOE will conduct an internal investigation related to whether the proof you uploaded is fraudulent.”

The teachers won’t be able to return to their classrooms or schools but have to sit in an isolated holding area until new instructions are given on September 1.
