The U.S. Proposes New Guidance For Federal Vaccine Mandate

Procedures are being employed by the Federal Government for workers of medical or religious sectors to exempt them from getting the Covid-19 vaccination.

On Monday, September 27, 2021, during an event in the South Court Auditorium on the White House Campus in Washington, President Joe Biden received a Covid-19 booster jab.

The U.S. Proposes New Guidance For Federal Vaccine Mandate

Just before a few weeks when it was essential for federal employees to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, on Monday, the federal government gave out a few guidelines for the workers to be exempted from the mandate issued by President Joe Biden for the medical and religious issues.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has continuously urged Americans to get the Covid-19 vaccine to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The US. Proposes New Guidance For Federal Vaccine Mandate

New guidance was released on Monday by the Office of Management and Budget ahead of the last responsive date for the workers to be fully vaccinated, which was the 22nd of November, which specified certain medical conditions that could be made to issue a warrant for exemption from being vaccinated. 

The guidelines also state that if for any reason, a request for exemption gets denied, then the agencies are supposed to tell their workers to get their first vaccination shot within two weeks after their request has been denied. They have also stated that federal agencies hold the complete authority of denying any medical or religious requests if they speculate that all the other safety protocols have become inadequate.

The CDC guidance is being drawn on by the presidency of Joe Biden to decide the approval of medical exemptions, by considering matters such as allergic reaction to the vaccines. The CDC has strictly advised that if someone who is pregnant or is planning to have babies, it would be beneficial for them to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, and any medical exemption requests to delay the vaccination if a person is pregnant would completely depend on the worker’s medical circumstances at that point by the Federal Government.

If any Federal worker wishes to seek exemption from the vaccine, then they will have to engage in a process called an “interactive process”, wherein they would be required to provide documentation in support of their exemption and potential accommodations. But if their request gets denied, then they would need to get their first shot within two weeks or face disciplinary proceedings as stated by Biden’s order.

Those workers who are unvaccinated are required to wear masks and maintain proper social distancing. Also, they would not be allowed to travel, even for work. 

For those who have been given the exemption, new guidelines would be unveiled within the coming weeks. If the agencies think that in cases of some workers, getting the vaccination shot is the only safety protocol left that seems adequate, then they may even deny legitimate requests.

As per the CDC guidelines, if a person wants to be considered vaccinated, there must be a two weeks gap after their second shot of the two vaccines, Pfizer and Moderna, or the one-dose vaccine which is Johnson and Johnson’s Janssen. This implies that most of the federal employees have time till November 8 to obey Biden’s order.
