ITâ€™S SPREADING: Boeing Employees Protest Companyâ€™s Vaccine Mandate
Boeing will require all 125,000 of its U.S.-based employees to be vaccinated against covid-19, according to a new statement from the company and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Boeing employees will need to show proof of vaccination by December 8, when President Joe Bidenâ€™s executive order for vaccine requirements at government contractors takes effect.
President Bidenâ€™s executive order for vaccine mandates requires all government contractors to get their employees vaccinated against covid-19 by December, though people are able to claim medical and religious exemptions. Businesses with more than 100 employees also need to have employees vaccinated, but anyone who refuses can opt instead for regular covid-19 testing.
