Some businesses have expressed the desire to mandate vaccination, and over 70% of current or recent CEOs of major companies said they were open to requiring them.
In contrast, a growing number of U.S. universities are requiring students to get fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before returning to campus in the fall. The requirement is not dissimilar to other vaccinations required of college students, but the COVID-19 vaccines’ emergency use status could create a legal gray area.
College students are not the only ones likely to face an inoculation ultimatum. A group of lawmakers have called on President Biden to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for all eligible military personnel. In a December survey, nearly half of active-duty troops indicated they would decline to get vaccinated along with 54% of military spouses.
