Eight in 10 Economists Say Employers Should Require Vaccine

August 24, 2021

As COVID-19 persists and the back-to-school season approaches, most economists say employers should require their workers to be vaccinated before they return to the office.

Eight in 10 economists said they are in favor of employers implementing COVID-19 vaccine mandates for employees returning to the workplace, according to a survey conducted by the National Association for Business Economics. Fourteen percent of economists said they oppose companies requiring workers to get jabbed.

Experts expect the FDA’s authorization to compel more businesses to make COVID-19 vaccination a condition of employment.

“We started with the concept of employers educating and enabling employees to get the vaccine and with the increase of Delta-variant cases we’ve seen a shift in last couple weeks, with employers going not quite to a vaccine mandate, but instead to a vaccine-or-test mandate,” said Domenique Camacho Moran, labor and employment attorney at Farrell Fritz.
