If you're going out to eat, or to the gym, or taking in a game or show in Boston — you'll soon have to prove you've been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu made the announcement Monday, saying the policy is needed to help address shrinking hospital capacity.

The move comes as cases in the city and across the state are on the rise. But it was almost immediately met with pushback — as what looked like a few dozen protestors rushed in to City Hall to try to shout down Wu's announcement.

We discuss it all with Mayor Wu, on our very first "Mondays with the Mayor" since she was elected.
