White House Delays Vaccine Enforcement

Unvaccinated federal employees have until the new year to comply.

The White House has delayed enforcement of the vaccine mandate for federal employees until after the beginning of 2022. An email from the Office of Management and Budget’s deputy director for management, Jason Miller, and the Office of Personnel Management’s director, Kiran Ahuja, indicated that over 95 percent of the federal workforce has been inoculated against COVID-19.

They wrote, “Given that tremendous progress, we encourage your agencies to continue with robust education and counseling efforts through this holiday season as the first step in an enforcement process, with no subsequent enforcement actions, beyond that education and counseling and, if warranted, a letter of reprimand, for most employees who have not yet complied with the vaccination requirement until the new calendar year begins in January.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration to seek God’s wisdom in addressing the coronavirus.
  • For federal workers who await review of their requests for exemption from the mandate.
  • For federal courts hearing cases regarding the constitutionality of the mandate.
