WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 23rd November, 2021) The US government has now achieved a 95% compliance rate of vaccination against COVID -19 among the 3.5 million federal employees, White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Jeff Zients said.
The government has achieved 95% compliance and 90% of the 3.5 million federal workers are (now) successfully vaccinated," Zients told a nationally televised briefing on Monday. "We have 98% compliance at the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) (and) 99% compliance at the FBI."
"We are prepared: We have secured enough supply of booster vaccines for every adult. Boosters are free and readily available at more than 80,000 locations throughout the country including 40,000 local pharmacies," Zients said.
Over the past weekend, health workers had delivered 3 million booster shots into people, an average of a million booster shots per day and 71% of all American adults were now fully vaccinated compared with less than 1% when Biden took office in January, he added.
