What Would Happen if Employers Forced Truckers To Get Vaccinated?
The Food and Drug Administration on Monday granted full approval to Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, and it didn’t take long for President Joe Biden to urge employers to mandate vaccinations across their workforces.
“If you’re a business leader, a nonprofit leader, a state or local leader who has been waiting on full FDA approval to require vaccinations, I call on you now to do that,” Biden said. “Require it.”
The same day, the National Safety Council recommended “employers follow our guidelines to encourage vaccine uptake by incentivizing and requiring vaccines as well as sharing information about the safety of vaccines.”
A big engineering association, the International Bridge Turnpike and Tunnel Association, moved to require proof of vaccination to attend an in-person conference, something that hasn’t happened around trucking-related events as yet.
