The FDA’s vaccine advisors are set to vote Friday on whether or not to officially recommend Pfizer’s COVID-19 booster shots. Days after Biden announced his aggressive six-point covid-19 plan, he is meeting with leaders from some of the world’s top corporations. They discussed vaccine and testing requirements for the country’s workforce.
“The Labor Department is working on emergency rule to require all employers with 100 or more workers to ensure their workers are fully vaccinated and regularly tested. And, it’s going to take a little bit for them to put those requirements in-place under the law,” said President Biden.
Companies that don’t comply could face thousands of dollars in fines per employee.
