Latest Covid-19 Booster News and Vaccine Mandates

“More than 3,500 organizations, from healthcare systems, to educational institutions, to state and local governments, to private businesses have already stepped up to adopt vaccination requirements,” White House Covid-19 response coordinator Jeff Zients told reporters. The White House yesterday touted “tremendous progress” for Covid-19 vaccinations as cases are trending downward across the country, outlining success in private sector efforts to mandate vaccines. Those mandates, he said, “have increase vaccination rates by 20-plus percentage points, with organizations routinely seeing their share of fully vaccinated workers rise above 90%.”

The official continued, “He will also highlight the ongoing work on boosters and ensuring our schools remain safe and open. Last, he will remind the American people that even with this strong progress, now is not the time to let up in our response.” “After the President receives a briefing from his Covid-19 response team, he will deliver an update on the progress the United States is making in its pandemic response. He will highlight that thanks to his ‘Path out of the Pandemic’ plan and the administration’s urgent push for vaccine requirements, the country is seeing a strong uptick in vaccinations, while cases and hospitalizations continue to decline,” a White House official told CNN.

Covid-19 remains a key political priority, and Thursday’s remarks indicate Biden is working to restore confidence in his handling of it. He is expected to highlight progress on America’s vaccination program.

Zients noted that since Biden announced vaccination requirements for the federal government, “The number of eligible Americans who are unvaccinated has decreased by about one-third, from 97 million down to 66 million individuals.” Vaccines, Zients reiterated, are accelerating US economic recovery as Americans feel more comfortable traveling, dining out, and shopping. “We have the vaccine supply and we’ll be ready to hit the ground running as soon as any additional boosters are authorized,” Zients said, echoing comments he made to CNN’s New Day last week.

The US Food and Drug Administration’s vaccine advisers are scheduled to meet today to discuss boosters, including booster data for Moderna’s Covid-19 boosters. Zients said the administration is ready should that decision move forward on Moderna’s boosters or Johnson & Johnson’s. As for boosters, Zients said it is “off to a very strong start,” with an estimated over 7 million Americans receiving a booster by the end of the day Wednesday, including approximately 3 million in the past week.
