Very frequently, supporters of ICAN ask us: what can we do? Here is a very simple, yet very important thing that each one of you can and should do.
On September 9, 2021, President Biden announced, as part of his Path Out of the Pandemic, a mandate for all federal contractors to be vaccinated for COVID-19. The government is now seeking public comment about the guidance which requires vaccination for all federal contractors. On the same date, President Biden announced that he would direct OSHA to mandate private employers with 100 or more employees to mandate COVID-19 vaccines or testing and masking. On November 6, 2021, OSHA enacted an emergency temporary standard requiring just that. The government is also seeking public comment about this mandate.
Please make a public comment sharing your thoughts about why federal contractors should not be mandated to be vaccinated in order to keep their jobs and why private employers should not be forced to mandate that their employees be vaccinated.
