WASHINGTON (AP) – The AP is reporting that the White House is considering a bill that will As of Monday’s deadline set by President Joe Biden, more than 90% of government workers had taken at least one dosage of the COVID-19 vaccination.
Unless they had a valid medical or religious exception, which Vice President Joe Biden stated in September, all 3.5 million government employees will be obliged to get vaccinated. Officials in the United States have stated that the majority of federal employees are fully immunized, with just a small minority granted permission to deviate from the standard vaccination schedule.
The person added that more than 95% of federal employees have either been vaccinated or received an exemption from the Biden rule. Workers who refuse to get vaccinated face a “counseling” process that might lead to their dismissal if they don’t get a shot or acquire an official exemption from immunization.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official wasn’t permitted to comment on the record until their official release later today.
With the deadline fast approaching, Vice President Joe Biden and his team are putting their efforts to persuade people around the country to get vaccinated to the test. However, plans for January enforcement have been put on hold because of legal challenges. His administration is also attempting to force large firms to impose vaccination-or-testing mandates that would encompass more than 84 million workers.
In law enforcement and intelligence agencies, where there was vocal opposition to the mandate, and in the travel sector as the busy holiday travel season approached, there was a great deal of anxiety about whether federal employees would implement the rule.
In the White House’s estimation, the mandate will have no impact on the federal government. 99 percent of Federal Aviation Administration employees, 93 percent of Transportation Security Administration employees, and 98 percent of Customs and Border Protection staff are in accordance with Vice President Biden’s order.
The Office of Management and Budget is expected to give a breakdown of agency compliance rates on Wednesday, according to an official.
Nearly a quarter of IRS employees began getting vaccinated after Biden’s declaration, and now 98% of IRS employees are in compliance with the rule, the official reported.
According to Utah Republican U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, as of late October, at least 20% of the personnel at numerous intelligence institutions was unvaccinated. There are around 31,000 members from 65 federal law enforcement organizations in the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, and he believed that 60% of them have been vaccinated.
Now the White House is using the federal vaccination mandate as a precedent for private enterprises to implement their own mandates before the OSHA litigation is settled.
Unvaccinated Americans ages 12 and older have plummeted from approximately 100 million to less than 60 million since Biden announced the first federal regulations earlier this summer. The vast majority of people who become really ill or die as a result of COVID-19 are not vaccinated, according to health officials.
