(Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden is expected to meet Wednesday with executives from companies including Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) Co, Microsoft Corp (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA) Inc to advance his COVID-19 vaccination requirements for the private sector, the Wall Street Journal reported https://www.wsj.com/articles/biden-to-meet-with-top-executives-on-covid-19-vaccine-mandate-11631696400?mod=latest_headlines.

The Biden administration is advocating for state and local leaders to enact COVID-19 vaccine mandates and will be meeting major employers on Wednesday at the White House to discuss the mandate issue.

Last week, the United States introduced a federal vaccine mandate aimed at employees of big companies and all federal workers and contractors. The mandate faces legal, political and enforcement challenges.

Forgot some words are blocked. Put another way, vaccinated means protected up to a point with varying efficacy. The vaccinated remain carriers of the novel Corona virus.

JFK warned us about all of this, and got killed 7 days later for it. And here we are today, almost realized fully. And yet so many blindly believe their "safety".

No; I would not have voted for Biden if he had campaigned for a COVID vaccine mandate. Among other things, this has made otherwise intelligent people into stupidly thinking that the unvaccinated are *******the vaccinated.

Jurgen Daub no they arent. They are dying because of gross negligence of the medical community. No treatment plans giving remdesvir which causes mods, kidney failure, heart failure in up to 39% of patients. Stop spewing the misinformation from the left

"Polls have shown a majority Americans support some form of mandates."  So, what? The tyranny of the majority.  And what does it mean "some form of mandate" and who was included in the poll?

I am sure as investing reader you looked in the balance sheets and noted that about 80% of businesses increased their profits significantly during the pandemic. a lot of them by raising prices. no problem for them to pay their fair share. may be next time you drive over a bridge it crumbles. to late now.
