Manchin to vote against Biden's vaccine mandate

Democratic Senator from West Virginia Joe Manchin said in a statement that he will side with his Republican colleagues in their effort to rescind President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate.

The rules, imposed by the administration in November, give businesses with 100 or more employees until January 4 to ensure all of their workers are fully vaccinated.

"Let me be clear, I do not support any government vaccine mandate on private businesses," said Manchin. "That's why I have cosponsored and will strongly support a bill to overturn the federal government vaccine mandate for private businesses."
