Biden Announces New Vaccine Mandates for 100 Million Americans

Updated: Sep 11


What Happened:

  • On Thursday, President Biden ordered new federal vaccine mandates that will affect up to 100 million Americans.

  • In his White House speech, Biden criticized the millions of Americans who have not been vaccinated saying “the unvaccinated can cause a lot of damage, and they are.”

  • With the goal of curbing the surge of infections from the Delta variant, the new orders will impose vaccine requirements for healthcare workers, federal contractors and private-sector employees as well.

  • The private-sector requirements are the most unexpected with Biden saying that employers with more than 100 employees must either require vaccinations or weekly tests for COVID-19.

  • Republicans have come out against the orders saying Biden is trying to strong arm private companies and that litigation will surely follow.

  • Meanwhile, the American Medical Association praised Biden for his efforts.
