The White House has said that millions of federal contractors must be vaccinated against Covid-19 by December 8 and that the administration will add clauses to future government contracts mandating inoculations.

President Joe Biden signed an executive order on Septemebr 9 requiring federal contractors to mandate vaccinations, but many US companies with federal contracts have awaited formal guidance from the White House before moving forward.

U.S. airlines were among the industries awaiting confirmation, as they sometimes hold contracts to sell tickets to government employees. The deadline of Dec. 8 was first reported by Reuters.
