The Biden Administration is delaying enforcement of its deadline requiring government employees to get vaccinated by November 22.
Most suspensions and removals are being delayed until January of 2022.
An Office of Management and Budget spokesperson said Monday the deadline was “not a cliff.” Workers who do not comply with the vaccine mandate will still be fired or suspended, just at a later date than originally planned, Just the News reports.
The Office of Management and Budget is encouraging all federal agencies to have an “education and counseling period” through December before taking action against the unvaccinated in January.
Earlier this month, vaccine deadlines were delayed for federal contracts to January 4, 2022.
