The Biden administration, via the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), has released a new rule. The new rule REQUIRES 84 million private sector workers to get vaccinated for COVID-19.
The Biden administration has also announced its rule from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Assistance (CMS) REQUIRING 17 million health care workers participating in federal health programs to be vaccinated.
An Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) is being instituted, and is allowed under the auspices of a declaration that workers are at risk.
The OSHA rule requires employers with 100 or more employees to put vaccine requirements in place for all staff, or face fines of up to $14,000 per violation.
