In an internal message Tuesday, Boeing management told its U.S. employees that with limited exceptions they must be vaccinated against Covid by Dec. 8 or face termination.
“Compliance with these requirements is a condition of employment,” states a Boeing internal presentation viewed by the Seattle Times. “Employees who are unable to meet these requirements, and do not have an approved accommodation, by December 8 may be released from the company.”
Moderna: First dose by October 27
Pfizer: First dose by November 3
J&J: Single dose by November 24
“Employees who are unable to be vaccinated due to a disability or sincerely held religious belief must submit an accommodation request,” Boeing stated. Any employee granted such an exemption will have to “undergo frequent testing and be ready to present a negative test result upon request.”
The policy will apply to roughly 125,000 employees in the U.S., with about 57,000 of those in Washington state.
