Biden is requiring employers with more than 100 employees to mandate vaccines or weekly testing.

Federal employees and healthcare workers are also required to be vaccinated, per Biden's new plan.

The Biden administration is requiring employers with more than 100 employees to mandate vaccines or weekly testing — a move that will affect more than 80 million workers.

The administration will also enforce fines of up to $14,000 per violation for employers that ignore these mandates, The Washington Post reported.

The move is part of a larger plan to stop the spread of COVID-19, which Biden unveiled Thursday afternoon.

Unlike employees at private companies, these workers would not have the option to get routinely tested as an alternative to being vaccinated.

Biden said last month that federal workers must be fully vaccinated or get tested regularly and wear a mask. »
