When must North Texas employees get COVID-19 vaccinations? Deadlines for hospitals, other companies

Only 8% of companies surveyed by the Dallas Regional Chamber in early August are requiring vaccines for employees to return to office, although that number will likely increase following a federal vaccine mandate for private employers with 100 or more workers announced Sept. 9.

First Baptist’s Robert Jeffress: ‘There is no credible religious argument against the vaccines’

As Americans increasingly seek religious exemptions from COVID-19 vaccine mandates, many faith leaders are telling them no. With more employers imposing the mandates, the push for exemptions has become more heated. At issue for many whose faith leads them to oppose abortion is that the most widely used coronavirus vaccines were tested on fetal cell lines developed over decades in laboratories, though the vaccines themselves do not contain any such material.

Employers Are Making the Vaccine Mandates About Safety, Not Politics

A publicly traded oil company with rigs throughout West Texas has 2,000 workers spread between 42 sites. The workers often work, eat, and sleep together in tight quarters. Earlier this summer, the company recorded 23 COVID-19 infections in three days, requiring 60 employees to go home and quarantine. Because of the nature of their job, they can’t work remotely. “We can’t live like this,” the CEO told Dr. Scott Conard. “We can’t have our operations cease because people are not willing to get a vaccine.”
