President Biden is set to issue the most sweeping set of federal vaccine mandates in U.S. history, affecting thousands of employers and tens of millions of Americans.
“Biden to mandate all employers (100 workers or more) require #COVID19 vaccinations or weekly virus tests, affecting as many as 100 million Americans,” PBS reported.
Businesses that don’t abide by the new virus policy will face “substantial fines up to nearly $14,000 per violation,” according to a senior Biden admin official.
“In addition, Biden will require health care workers at Medicare & Medicaid participating hospitals and other health care settings to be vaccinated, impacting more than 17 million workers,” PBS added.
More details on the coming federal vaccine mandates was reported by NBC News, which said they were “designed to ramp up pressure on the unvaccinated, putting in place additional requirements for federal employees, large employers, and health care providers that the administration said would affect around 100 million workers, more than two-thirds of the U.S. workforce.”
President Biden promised to return America to normal and promised a “summer of freedom.” After Biden issues his executive orders, that “summer of freedom” will come to an end.
