United Airlines requires employees to be vaccinated by Oct. 25

United Airlines is mandating that all U.S. employees must be vaccinated by Oct. 25 at the latest.

Employees will be required to prove that they have had the appropriate number of doses for either Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson Johnson vaccines five weeks after the FDA announced it had fully approved a COVID-19 vaccine or five weeks after September 20, whichever comes first, United CEO Scott Kirby and President Brett Hart said in a February memo re-examined by FOX Business.

The latest deadline for meeting this requirement is Oct. 25, according to the memo. However, Kirby and Hart noted that the FDA would likely announce its full approval for the vaccine as soon as next month, so the earlier timeline is more likely.

Employees who are already inoculated and are able to upload proof of vaccination before 20th September will be eligible for an additional day of pay, Kirby and Hart added.

We have no greater responsibility to you and your colleagues than to ensure your safety when you are at work, and the facts are crystal clear: everyone is safer when everyone is vaccinated, the memo reads.
