Biden is pushing a large-scale plan to ensure that millions of employees in the private sector are vaccinated before next year. He must first ensure that federal workers are vaccinated.
According to the President’s executive order, approximately 4 million federal workers must be vaccinated by November 22. Some employees, including those who work at the White House, are nearly vaccinated. According to union and agency leaders, rates for other federal agencies are lower, particularly those related to intelligence and law enforcement. Some workers are studying in depth, filing lawsuits and protesting what they call the White House’s unfair over-expansion.
This is Biden’s first test of his efforts to encourage people to get vaccinated. According to guidelines, Biden will implement another task in January. This task will include the federal worker regulations and a target of approximately 84.9 million workers from the private sector.

People don’t trust government. They don’t trust vaccines.
Vaccines are safe. Both clinical trials and independent reviews have proven that they are effective in preventing severe illness and death from COVID-19. Over 222 million Americans have had at least one dose, and over 193 million have been fully vaccinated. More than half of the global population has been vaccinated.
Scientists have been struggling with anxiety since the vaccine’s approval. A poll conducted by AP-NORC in January found that one third of adults in America are skeptical. This despite assurances that the vaccine is safe, effective, and that there are few side effects.
