Pfizer to require workers in US to get vaccine or test weekly

Pfizer announced on Wednesday that it would require all its employees working in the United States to get inoculated against the COVID-19 or get tested for the coronavirus on a weekly basis.

"Outside the US, the company is strongly encouraging all colleagues who are able to do so in their countries to get vaccinated. Colleagues who have medical conditions or religious objections will be able to seek accommodations. Colleagues are still required to adhere to all COVID-19 state, local and Pfizer safety procedures while engaged in Pfizer work," spokeswoman Pamela Eisele told CNBC.

Americans are divided over whether the government should consider making the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory, according to the latest CNBC All-America Economic Survey, with nearly 50% going both in favor and against the potential decision.
