Boeing Joins a Growing Number of Companies Canceling Vax Mandate


Boeing put a COVID vaccine requirement into effect in October after President Biden mandated that federal contractors vaccinate their workforce or implement regular testing by January 4th, 2022.

They’ve surrendered.

The aerospace giant’s announcement on Friday followed other major companies such as Amtrak and General Electric that suspended their own vaccine mandates in the US as a result of the ongoing legal battles that pit states led by conservative attorneys general against the federal government.

A growing number of health care systems, healthcare clinics, and other companies, including Amtrak and General Electric, have also suspended mandates that require employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

In an interview with the Seattle Times on Friday after the announcement, Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Stan Deal said he still wants “to encourage every one of our workforce to get vaccinated.” He pointed to the important role vaccines play in allowing the global air travel industry to recover from the pandemic, Stars and Stripes reported.

A Boeing spokesperson said:

Boeing is committed to maintaining a safe working environment for our employees and advancing the health and safety of our global workforce.

As such, we continue to encourage our employees to get vaccinated and get a booster if they have not done so. Meanwhile, after careful review, Boeing has suspended its vaccination requirement in line with a federal court’s decision prohibiting enforcement of the federal contractor executive order and a number of state laws.

Boeing had already vaccinated more than 90 percent of its employees while the mandate was in effect. “The success of Boeing’s vaccination requirement to date positions the company well to comply with the federal executive order should it be reinstated in the future,” an internal Boeing announcement said.

However, over 11,000 Boeing employees sought an exemption from the mandate on religious or medical grounds. That number is roughly nine percent of the company’s U.S. workforce.

About time these ‘brilliant’ people make decisions AFTER they get out of bed…

Some of these businesses are seeing the results of vaccination. A pilot’s physical is pretty intense, Heart Disease Issues can ground pilots which is why most pilots refused the Jab. These are Experiential Medications no matter what the CDC and FDA say. Now that there is mounting evidence that the Jab may cause long term heart disease problems down the road, companies are having to rethink their positions.

All this is now a mute point. The Covid Hoax is over and Covid will be gone by March. The Omicron Variant is mild and easily survivable. It spreads quickly and will basically “inoculate” pretty much everyone who hasn’t had the Jab or contracted the virus already within a few months. The big question is how much damage has Government Stupidity done to Tens of Millions immune systems? Right now, I’m far more worried about vaccinated people than those with Natural Immunity. The leaky Vaccines are driving variant production and still has the potential for creating a much more deadly strain. This is why Man should not recklessly challenge Mother Nature. Dr. Fauci was financing the development of Weapons of Mass Destruction in China and needs to pay dearly for that crime against Humanity. No Bureaucrat should have that kind of power. Not even a President should have that kind of power. Things like that need to be debated by The People first!
