You have seen the titles on social media or other websites: Employees at the White House, CDC, FDA, WHO, Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson are not currently required to be vaccinated for COVID-19 : Now this is somewhat true but now since Sept 9th Biden “orders” changes this context a bit. Now I have removed and updates the places which it’s still not required.
Federal Court or Congress
According to The New York Times, this did not include “those who work for Congress or the federal court system.”
White House official state that USPS workers are NOT included in President Biden’s vaccine requirement, but “we strongly encourage them to comply with these standards.”
We contacted the World Health Organization (WHO) to ask if it had a vaccine policy. In response, WHO spokesperson Dr. Margaret Harris told us: “In line with UN Medical Directors consensus opinion, COVID-19 vaccination is strongly encouraged but is currently not mandatory for personnel.”
Pfizer is requiring all U.S. colleagues and contractors to become vaccinated as a condition of work or participate in regular weekly COVID-19 testing. This is to best protect the health and safety of our colleagues and the communities we serve. Outside the U.S., the company is strongly encouraging all colleagues who are able to do so in their countries get vaccinated. Colleagues who have medical conditions or religious objections will be able to seek accommodations. Colleagues are still required to adhere to all COVID-19 state, local, and Pfizer safety procedures while engaged in Pfizer work.
