White House clarifies USPS workers will be subject to vaccine mandate

The White House issued a clarification late Thursday after the Washington Post, citing an official, reported USPS workers were not required to get the shot and were only being “strongly encouraged” to do so.

Postal workers will have a choice between getting the vaccine and getting tested for COVID-19 once a week, a Biden administration official clarified, subjecting those workers to the rules being imposed on business of 100 employees or more, as opposed to the rules for federal employees.

“USPS is not included in the executive order requiring vaccination of Federal employees. USPS has a separate statutory scheme and is traditionally independent of federal personnel actions like this,” a Biden administration official said.

Good luck with that Joe.

I’m with you Clayton

Postal workers really need to stand together more than ever. If a employee has natural immunity bcuz they already contracted covid-19 they shouldn’t be subject to the mandate. Studies show natural immunity is better than the vaccine.

What studies? Please share.
