Vaccine Mandate is expected to finally come to an end in New York City. With the onset of the pandemic, strict mandates were imposed all over the world. America was no different. Quarantine, wearing of masks and social distancing were being strictly followed.
Every sector suffered from the ill effects. Major sports leagues got delayed or postponed. A lot of athletes found it hard to make their way back into the team that they play for. Such was the case with Kyrie Irving.

All major leagues made it mandatory for their players to get both doses of vaccines. This made Kyrie miss almost thirty-five games in the current season. This came as a huge blow to the Nets.
The performance of the team suffered significantly due to the athlete’s absence. The easing of the vaccine mandate is expected to be a great relief for everyone.
