Vaccine mandates to be set locally: US CDC chief
Vaccine mandates to be set locally: US CDC chief

Washington, May 17 (TIWN) Rochelle Walensky, Director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that mandates in the country for people to get vaccinated against Covid-19 have been left to individual companies and institutions.

“It may very well be that local businesses, local jurisdictions, will work towards vaccine mandates,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “That is going to be locally driven and not federally driven.”

Separately, on “Fox News Sunday,” Walensky cited colleges or universities that may enforce vaccine mandates for students, and that the cruise ship industry may also consider it for people about to embark on multiday journeys at sea.
