The White House released a report Thursday morning about the impact of vaccination requirements in the United States, claiming that making vaccines mandatory would result in more millions of Americans being shot in the arm.
The report, released ahead of President Joe Biden’s visit to Chicago, where he will meet with leaders implementing vaccination requirements in the public and private sectors, analyzes healthcare systems, educational institutions, public-sector agencies and private businesses. It has seen that businesses that establish vaccine requirements have increased the number of their fully vaccinated employees by over 90%. Nationwide, 63% of adults aged 18-64 are fully vaccinated.
“Without the need for vaccinations, we face endless months of chaos in our hospitals, having a more detrimental effect on our economy and creating anxiety in our schools,” the report said. According to White House analysis, there is widespread public support for the need for vaccines and will help boost the economy by bringing workers back into the workforce.
But several Republican-led states have remained adamant in opposing such requirements, even in areas where attempts have been made to provide such instructions.
The White House report has been followed From mid-September, Biden ordered all employers, including 100 or more employees, to make the vaccine mandatory or to conduct weekly Covid-1 testing. American companies with vaccine mandates include Disney and United Airlines.
According to the report, 25% of all undergraduate and graduate students across the country are required to be vaccinated in 25% of business, 400% of hospitals and colleges and universities. Thousands more business needs are expected to be imposed in the coming weeks.

Schools make masks mandatory because of Mississippi hospital admissions
As coronavirus cases have dropped in Mississippi schools, doctors have warned that children infected with Covid-1 are still filling the only children’s hospital in the state because some schools are again eliminating the need for masks.
Of the 740 schools reported from 73 of Mississippi’s 82 counties, the Department of Health reported Tuesday that there were more than 800 new Covid-1 cases among Mississippi students nationwide from Sept. 27 to Oct. 1.
Some Mississippi school masks have begun to relax orders as community cases have begun to decline. The Mississippi Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics wrote a memorandum to school leaders and parents on Thursday stating that wearing a mask at school is essential to reduce Covid-1 transmission infection.
“Acute covid hospital admissions seem to be on the rise again and it’s time to eliminate the need for school masks,” Dr. Char Charlotte Hobbes, a professor of pediatric infectious diseases at Mississippi State, said in a memo.

Biden spent another িয়ন 1 billion on the Covid-1 tests at home
The Biden administration on Wednesday announced a new investment of ১ 1 billion in home coronavirus testing, which will quadruple the country’s supply of this rapid test in early December. White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Jeff Giants said the administration has kept promises from test manufacturers to deliver 200 million home tests per month by December.
Last month, the Biden administration announced it would spend about 2 2 billion to buy about 280 million coronavirus home tests to provide long-term care facilities, community testing sites, homeless shelters, prisons, jails and other centers providing services to vulnerable populations. On Monday, the Food and Administration Administration approved ACON Laboratories’ Fluflex COVID-19 home test, a move that would add millions of tests in a few weeks, an FDA official said.

The woman who died after the J&J vaccine opposed the vaccination
A 37-year-old woman died on Sept. 37 due to a blood clot associated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Jessica Berg Wilson, a mother of two, was opposed to vaccinating her body with the Covid-1 vaccine. In the last weeks of his life, “the world has been darkened by the heavy-handed vaccine mandate,” it reads. “The local and state governments were determined to consult his wisdom and take away his right to enjoy freedom.”
Three more deaths have been confirmed nationally by blood clots. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stopped the J&J vaccine for investigation in the spring, but eventually lifted the break and resumed use of the vaccine.
