Roughly 65% of the city's employees are fully vaccinated, as of Tuesday — below the city average of 71%.
Vaccination rates by department will be released later Thursday.
Why it matters: It's been almost two months since Philly's early September deadline for its workers to get vaccinated passed. Yet up until last week, only a third had shown proof of vaccination.

State of play: Philadelphia's mandate for city workers is voluntary, which means employees either have to get vaccinated or double-mask on the job.
Meanwhile, all health care workers in the city had to get their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by last Friday. Acting Health commissioner Cheryl Bettigole said the city is still surveying the data on how many made it.
Bettigole said the city will work with nursing homes that aren't at a 100% vaccination rate to test employees semi-weekly.
What we're watching: More residents will likely soon be eligible for a vaccine. A Food and Drug Administration advisory panel backed Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11 earlier this week.
The School District of Philadelphia told Axios that although it supports anyone who's eligible to get a vaccine, there are no plans to enforce a mandate for students at this time.
