Biden urges employers to give paid time off for vaccinations

United States President Joe Biden urged all employers in the country to give their workers paid time off so they can receive COVID-19 vaccines and recover in case they have a reaction to the shot.

"No working American should lose a single dollar from their paycheck because they fulfilled their patriotic duty to get vaccinated," Biden stated. He noted that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will reimburse businesses for the costs of the paid leave given to employees for vaccination.

The US president also called all unvaccinated adults in the US to get a coronavirus jab in order to protect themselves and their communities, claiming that those who receive both doses of the vaccine will be almost 100% protected from dying from COVID-19 two weeks after their second shot.
