Biden spoke at United Airlines’ Chicago area headquarters, a success story about the need for a vaccine in which about 999% of workers did not file for a waiver. He also pointed to the achievements of some healthcare systems and colleges and universities in vaccinating staff and students. “At Rush University Medical Center, here in Chicago, more than 72% to 95% of employees have been fully vaccinated to meet their needs.”
“Even when I’m out on Fox News,” Biden said with laughter and applause. “Fox News needs vaccinations for all employees. Give me a break. Fox News.”
In the six weeks since the Department of Defense announced the need for active duty forces, the vaccination rate in this group has increased from 76% to 97%. And Biden is talking to leaders of large companies, announcing several vaccine mandates.
On the same day, the White House issued a statement. Report on Vaccine Mandate Yet. The results show that “Organizations with vaccination requirements have seen their vaccination rates increase by more than 20 percentage points, and their share of fully vaccinated workers has risen above 90 percent as usual. Requirements are already broad, “25% in businesses, 40% in hospitals, and colleges and universities that serve 37% of all graduate and undergraduate students,” but when OSHA offers its employees The principle is finalized by more than 100 workers
And, as. Friday’s disappointing jobs report. Reminds us that Covid 19 continues to stifle the economy, even as vaccinations provide a way forward. The White House report states that “during the recent spread of the Delta variant, the number of cases, hospital admissions and deaths in low-vaccine states was about two and a half times higher.” “Small business employee hours increase rapidly and are longer during the heyday of the delta variant in states with higher working age vaccination rates, compared to states with lower vaccination rates.”
Polls have repeatedly shown that the majority of people support the vaccination mandate. A new survey also suggests. Majority support for school children vaccination mandate 12 to 17 years old
They have public support.
More companies, school districts, and other organizations keep them in place now.
