Biden To Require All Federal Employees To Get Vaccinated Or Undergo Regular Testing

Summary from the AllSides News Team

President Joe Biden announced a series of new protocols on Thursday in an attempt to get more Americans vaccinated and slow down the spread of COVID-19, including a new rule that requires all federal employees to be vaccinated or submit to a series of safety protocols. The president's new rule will apply to about 4 million people who work for the federal government, including contractors employed at federal sites. Similar steps are being taken by local governments and private institutions. Additionally, Biden called on state and local governments to give out $100 prizes to those who go out and get vaccinated.

Left-rated outlets often highlighted how most COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths across the country are linked to unvaccinated people. Right-rated sources were more likely to emphasize how federal employees are not required to get vaccinated and can choose to get tested regularly.
