Jen Psaki on SCOTUS Decision: Pres. Biden Will Continue to Call on Businesses to Implement Vaccine Mandates

‘President Biden ... will be calling on and will continue to call on businesses to immediately join those who have already stepped up’

EXCERPT:

PSAKI: “CMS's requirement for healthcare workers to be vaccinated will save the lives of patients, as well as the lives of doctors, nurses and others who work in healthcare settings. It will cover 17 million healthcare workers at 76,000 medical facilities. The Supreme Court upheld it and we will enforce that. The Supreme Court’s decision on the OSHA mandate essentially means that in this pandemic it is up to individual employers to determine whether their workplaces will be safe for employees and whether their businesses will be safe for consumers. So, President Biden, you’ll see this in his statement, will be calling on and will continue to call on businesses to immediately join those who have already stepped up, including one third of Fortune 100 companies, to institute vaccination requirements to protect their workers, customers and communities. We have to keep working together in order to get this done to save more lives. I would note that there are a couple of signs, good signs in terms of, without this, even in spite of the ruling that we would point to. One is that 57 percent, according to a Navigator poll, of Americans support vaccine requirements.”
