An unvaccinated child was seen being taken away by police from the Museum of Natural History in Manhattan this evening.
Please see the upsetting video here:
The girl was with her mother as part of a protest against the unprecedented Vaccine Mandates that have swept New York City. All children over the age of five are required to have a Covid vaccine in order to enter indoor spaces such as the museum.
The group entered the museum without the mandated Vaccine Identification and were denied entry by staff after paying for their tickets. They were asked to leave by Museum Security due to lack of Vaccine Passport. When they declined to leave, security called the NYPD. After a peaceful protest that lasted over three hours, the police arrested the group.
According to witnesses, security locked the group inside the museum until police arrived.
The terrified child was seen flanked by two police officers. She was escorted down the museum stairs towards a waiting NYPD police vehicle and taken away.
All children in New York City are required by Executive Order to have the Covid-19 Vaccine and accompanying documentation to enter all restaurants and, amusement parks, arcades, movie theaters, music and concert venues, museums, aquariums and zoos, professional sports arenas, indoor stadiums, convention centers, exhibition halls, hotel meeting and event spaces, performing arts theaters, bowling alleys, arcades, pool and billiard halls, recreational game centers, gyms, and indoor play areas.
