Apple Is Ordering Shots For Some Employee

( Apple Inc., the technology company behind the iPhone and the Mac, is reportedly requiring some of its employees to take COVID-19 vaccination boosters in order to be officially considered “fully vaccinated.”

Should Apple employees refuse to comply with their new demands, they will be required to be tested every time they enter offices or Apple stores, starting in February. There is no word on when the requirement will end, and how many vaccine boosters Apple expects its employees to take.

It’s a worrying reflection of how, despite the Supreme Court ruling President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates to be unconstitutional, some of the country’s biggest employers are going ahead with their own mandates anyway.

Documents obtained by technology news website The Verge revealed how all corporate and retail employees at Apple will have four weeks to take the booster shot, as soon as they become eligible. The news was announced in a memo sent to all members of staff, which warned:

“Due to waning efficacy of the primary series of COVID-19 vaccines and the emergence of highly transmissible variants such as Omicron, a booster shot is now part of staying up to date with your COVID-19 vaccination to protect against severe disease.”

Apple did not cite any data or scientific studies showing that a booster shot provides effective protection against Omicron – nor did the company acknowledge the fact that Omicron is significantly less deadly to most people and often presents with symptoms similar to the common cold.

There’s a reason the CDC recommended people stop quarantining for 10 days and isolate for just five days instead…
