Some states are forcing their teachers to get vaccinated. The governors of California, Oregon, New Jersey and New York have enforced a mandate for teachers to get vaccinated or they will lose their jobs. Joe Biden expanded his vaccine mandate which states that all employers with over 100 workers must require them to get shots or test for the virus weekly. A separate provision requires workers to get the vaccine at schools operated by the federal government.
“About 90% of school staff and teachers are vaccinated, we should have that at 100%,” Biden said. While as of yet his plan does not require teachers in locally governed schools to get vaccinated, he does want governors to take charge and put in their own vaccine mandates for the teachers.
