Tyson Foods ends COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all employees
Civil rights attorney on SCOTUS vaccine mandates: This isn’t about politics
Brian Claypool discusses the Supreme Court’s oral arguments on Biden’s vaccine mandate.
Tyson Foods, the largest meat producer in the U.S., ended its COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all employees on Oct. 31.
"While COVID-19 remains a public health concern, it no longer presents the same level of threat as it did 15 months ago when we made the decision to have a vaccinated workforce as a safety measure for our team members and our work environment," a Tyson Foods spokesperson told Fox Business.
"The risk of severe infection has decreased significantly, with many resources readily available including vaccines and boosters, testing, and improved treatment options."
Tyson Foods announced the mandate in August 2021, saying that office employees must be vaccinated by Oct. 1, 2021, and all employees across the board must be vaccinated on Nov. 1, 2021.
