On September 9th, President Biden announced new nationwide vaccine mandates in an effort to curb the rise in COVID-related cases. These measures deal directly with the workforce, and are designed to encourage unvaccinated Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine as quickly as possible.

This vaccine mandate has vast repercussions, affecting various sectors and millions of employees across the country. Chances are, your organization will be affected by the mandate and you’ll need to take steps to ensure you’re properly complying. 

Vaccine Mandate Details

The Biden Administration vaccine mandate measures cover a number of sectors, and also include consequences for those why refuse to comply. Here are the basics of the mandate: 

The Public Sector 

The Healthcare Sector

The Private Sector 

The Exceptions

The Penalties 

How to Manage Your Workforce 

The vaccine mandates announcements still don’t have a ton of specifics, and no one knows exactly how the measures will be logistically implemented. But the federal government is urging businesses to begin the process ASAP.


As an organizational decision maker, you’ll deal with both the positive and negative effects of the mandate. On one hand, it’s helpful to have some guidance when it comes to executing plans to keep the workforce protected. On the other hand, it creates some uncertainty and compliance red tape that someone on your team now has to manage and track. That’s where Paypro comes in.  


Extra reporting requires extra organization. Manage potential reporting logistics from organizations like the Department of Labor. It’s likely they’ll request some form of reporting in the future.
