The health officials give warning for the future

Jeff Zients, the White House coronavirus coordinator, at a news conference on Friday said
“For the unvaccinated, you’re looking at a winter of severe illness and death for yourselves, your families and the hospitals you may soon overwhelm,”

The unvaccinated pockets of people are inclined to receive a more severe reaction from the virus infection.
Thus, they are being encouraged to take the vaccination.
Now, even kids under five years of age can get vaccinated with a booster shot under development for the Omicron virus.

The Court appeal for vaccination policy for large private businesses

A federal appeals court on Friday reinstated the Biden administration’s coronavirus vaccination policy for large private businesses, reversing an earlier court ruling that had halted one of the White House’s signature efforts to reduce transmission and drive down case counts.

The appeal also focuses on the rules for the protection of workers at large private businesses from the infection responsible for many deaths in the country.

The Labor Department rules enforce the employers with a workforce of or more than 100 workers to require staff to get vaccinated or have weekly testing with mandatory masking.
