Default Vaccine Stance

Curious how Fedex is approaching the Covid vaccine. Any rumors or ideas as to which way they will lean with a mandate.

Both company comms last week only "strongly encourage" vaccinations.

That was before the FDA approved the Pfizer vaccine. It will interesting to see if it becomes mandatory.

You shouldnít have anything to worry about if you are vaccinated.

A new hire buddy at Delta told me it was mandatory, he got it, had to go to hospital for a week, fever, numbness in limbs, blood clots, put him on blood thinners.

How can they make this mandatory, when all the other vaccines arenít required.

It effects everyone differently. As they say, the befits outweigh the risks apparently. I didnít have any side effects when I got my first and second dose. Of course there is always the long term which is still not answered. You know what they say YOLO!

This needs to go to the Covid 19 thread so that all the same old arguments can happen there.

Bottom line is that we are very likely going to be flying to places that require it. Their country, their rules.

When that happens it will ultimately force the company's hand.

My nightmare is that the company is offered a choice by countries - use 100% vaccinated pilots or continue the hotel quarantines. ALPA has already come out against vaccine mandates.

Guess we better get used to the ICN Hyatt.....Hey it won't affect the domestic guys, so.....
