Employers to begin mandating COVID-19 vaccines this week

The city of Cincinnati is scheduled to begin enforcing a COVID-19 vaccine requirement today for its workers, and health care employers and universities across the region plan to follow suit over the next several weeks.

Taken together, the mandates cover nearly 1 of every 13 workers in the Cincinnati region (or 90,000 employees) as well as 78,000 students.

More and more institutions are likely to start requiring inoculation against COVID-19 after President Joe Biden announced vaccine mandates and testing requirements for businesses with 100 or more employees. The mandate could affect more than 80 million workers across the U.S.

But how many people will the local mandates actually affect, since most local employers (including the city) won't say how many unvaccinated workers they have? And what happens if individuals refuse to comply?
