White House: 92% of fed workers under mandate are vaccinated

FILE — President Joe Biden speaks about COVID-19 vaccinations after touring a Clayco Corporation construction site for a Microsoft data center in Elk Grove Village, Ill., on Oct. 7, 2021. Looks like the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate for millions of federal workers is working, and dire projections of disruption to law enforcement, intelligence gathering, or holiday travel have not materialized. Of Tuesday, one day after the deadline, 92% of the 3.5 million federal workers covered by Biden’s reported to the administration that they are at least partially vaccinated, according to White House officials. In total, 96.5% of employees have been deemed in compliance with the policy, whether through medical or religious exemptions that are still being evaluated. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)
