Covid-19 Vaccines Mandatory for Employees say Economists

According to a recent survey released early Monday, the majority of economists feel that employers should compel their Employees to get vaccinated in order to keep their employment or return to work. The survey, which was conducted by the National Association for Business Economics, found that the majority of the group’s members support forcing Employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19 before returning to work, with 79 percent in favour.

Only 14% of those polled stated they opposed mandatory vaccinations. Furthermore, about a quarter of respondents said their employers already require workers to get the vaccine before returning to work. In comparison, 33% of employers do not require Employees to be vaccinated. Although requirements aren’t prevalent in the United States, they’re getting more common as the extremely contagious delta variety spreads across the country.

While the United States was making significant progress with vaccinations – according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 72.7 percent of adults have received at least one shot – and infections began to decline, cases have recently rebounded as the delta variant spreads among the unvaccinated population. According to the CDC, the United States has seen an average of 133,000 new cases per day in the last seven days, up from 11,000 in June.

Large corporations such as Tyson, Microsoft, and Google have recently informed its Employees that they must get vaccinated in order to work on-site or keep their employment. New York City was also the first city in the United States to require confirmation of at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccination for a variety of activities, including indoor restaurants, gyms, and shows, for both workers and customers.According to a recent Census Bureau study, around 5.5 percent of firms said they will require physical verification that an employee is vaccinated before going to work in mid-July, up from only 2.2 percent of businesses in early April.
