Monday marks the deadline for the vaccination of federal employees

Monday is the deadline for federal workers to prove they have been vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to NPR.

“The mandate was imposed by President Biden in an executive order signed in September,” the outlet said.

Federal employees will have all day to provide proof of vaccination, and White House press secretary Jen Psaki said experience with similar mandates in the private sector indicated there may be a emergency to meet standards and submit appropriate documents.

“We don’t see it as a cliff,” Psaki commented at Friday’s briefing.

Earlier this month, Biden moved forward with a broad plan to require millions of private sector workers to receive the vaccine by early 2022.

“But first, he needs to make sure workers in his own federal government get vaccinated,” The Associated Press (AP) reported on November 7:

About 4 million federal workers are to be vaccinated by November 22 under the presidential decree. Some employees, like those in the White House, are almost all vaccinated. But rates are lower in other federal agencies, especially those related to law enforcement and intelligence, according to agencies and union leaders. And some resistant workers are digging in, suing and protesting what they say is unfair excess on the part of the White House.

Meanwhile, 195 House Republicans and all 50 Republican Senators back a measure introduced recently to overturn Biden’s federal vaccine mandate, Rep. Fred Keller (R-PA) said in an interview on Breitbart News Saturday.

“We are working to quash the illegal warrants for vaccines by Joe Biden. [It’s] clearly an undue interference with the authority for OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, to approach private employers and tell them whether or not their employees need to be vaccinated to be employed ”, Keller explained.

“In America, we have personal freedoms and freedoms, and this is an overtaking. And what we are doing is we are working to cancel this mandate and we know we are on the right track, ”he added.
