Biden says private-sector COVID-19 vaccine mandate will take effect ‘soon’:
In a brief, six-minute address to the nation, President Biden on Thursday said that his private-sector COVID-19 vaccine mandate will take effect “soon” to address the “unacceptably high number” of people who don’t want to be vaccinated.
But he took no questions from reporters, for a second straight day after a major address, amid nationwide concerns about rising inflation and a supply-chain crisis that has left store shelves bare and threatens the delivery of holiday gifts as prices for most goods go up.
On COVID-19, Biden said that “we’re making progress. Nationally, daily cases are down 47 percent and hospitalizations are down 38 percent over the past six weeks.”
But he said “we’re in a very critical period as we work to turn the corner on COVID-19” and that “we have to do more to vaccinate 66 million unvaccinated people in America.”
“The Labor Department is going to soon be issuing an emergency rule for companies with 100 or more employees to implement vaccination requirements,” Biden said. --->READ MORE HERE

Republican AGs say there’s no federal vaccine mandate for workers, vow to sue:
Republican attorneys general are advising their state residents that President Biden’s federal mandate for coronavirus vaccinations is not yet in effect — but once it does become reality, they’ll challenge it in the courts.
Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen, a Republican, said Thursday the Biden administration has just recently submitted the text of its emergency vaccine rule for review to the Office of Management and Budget, so as of now, no regulation is in effect.
“Further, my office is preparing to immediately challenge and enjoin this federal overreach on a variety of grounds when the Biden administration issues its announced rule,” he said.
The guidance comes after President Biden gave a speech last month saying he would require private employers to mandate that employees receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
It’s part of the president’s push to get more Americans vaccinated. --->READ MORE HERE
