President Joe Biden plans to require COVID-19 vaccines for staff at all healthcare facilities that receive federal funding, two people with knowledge of the matter told Politico.
The move is part of a larger plan to stop the spread of COVID-19 that Biden is set to unveil on Thursday afternoon, the sources told Politico.
The new policy would extend the COVID-19 vaccine requirement to hospitals that receive Medicare or Medicaid funding, which would cover a large proportion of them.
Biden last month announced that he was requiring nursing home staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19, and he also implemented a vaccine mandate for federal workers.
