East Brunswick has rescinded its COVID-19 vaccination requirement for city workers.
Mayor Brad Cohen says he decided to backtrack after the CDC said the virus can be spread by both the vaccinated and unvaccinated. He made the announcement during Monday night's Township Council meeting.

But he did urge everyone to still get a shot, saying the only people the unvaccinated put at greater risk are themselves.
Mayor Cohen originally implemented the policy via an administrative order. Municipal workers would have had until Sept. 30 to provide proof of vaccination.
