United Expands Vaccination Opportunities
September 22, 2021
This morning, September 22, 2021, United management released information through a statement to employees indicating that more than 97% of U.S. employees, excluding the small number of employees who sought a Reasonable Accommodation exemption, have been vaccinated as we approach the September 27, 2021 deadline.
Of importance, addressing those who are attempting to become vaccinated and who are having difficulty locating the single dose J & J vaccine, the company is creating an additional opportunity to secure the first dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine and to upload information on your first shot to Flying Together by September 27, 2021 with a follow-on requirement that you must be fully vaccinated by October 31, 2021.
United has also reiterated, if you have not received and reported at least one shot or have not been granted an accommodation extension, the separation process may begin as early as September 28, 2021.
