How A Vaccine Mandate Can Help Businesses

According to the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC), unvaccinated people make up the majority of Delta variant cases in the U.S.

While there have been attempts to politicize this issue, the data doesn’t lie. That’s why businesses can greatly benefit from implementing a vaccine mandate.

Without receiving a vaccine, employees who contract Covid-19 may end up having to go to the hospital. And if a business supplies their workers with health insurance, this could mean higher coverage costs.

This is why some companies like Delta Airlines, who revealed that the average hospital stay for employees with Covid-19 costs $50,000 per person, stated that unvaccinated workers that receive health care from the company could see a $200 monthly surcharge.

    “Protecting yourself, your colleagues, your loved ones, and your community is fundamental to the shared values that have driven our success for nearly a century,” said Ed Bastian, CEO of Delta. “Vaccinations are the safest, most effective, and most powerful tool we have to achieve our goals, live up to our values, and move forward.”

    However, if employees still refuse to get vaccinated, leaders may ask them to receive regular testing and screenings. 

    Still, although some private insurers waive Covid tests, some may not if the test isn’t considered medically necessary.
