“In guidance for federal contractors updated on Nov. 10, the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force clarified that covered contractor employees must be fully vaccinated no later than Jan. 18, 2022. This requirement is not affected by the block of the emergency temporary standard.” 

Smith, A.  (2021, November 15) Federal Contractor Employees Must Be ‘Fully Vaccinated’ by Jan. 18, 2022.  SHRM.  https://www.shrm.org/resourcesandtools/legal-and-compliance/employment-law/pages/coronavirus-federal-contractor-employees-must-be-fully-vaccinated.aspxSenate

Who Does This Effect?  

Any employee that is working on or tied to a government contract will be required to be vaccinated. This does effect contract workers and subcontractors that are working on federal projects. Government contracts that are already in place, extended or newly requisitioned will all be covered under this mandate.  

How to Be Ready for January 18th

  • Make sure all employees covered understand the mandate and the requirement to be fully vaccinated by the January 18th, 2022, deadline.
    • Employees must receive their 1st dose of the Johnson & Johnson or 2nd dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine by January 4th, 2022.
    • An individual is considered “fully vaccinated” two weeks after the one-shot Johnson & Johnson and two weeks after the 2nd dose of Pfizer or Moderna.
    • To qualify for the 2nd dose and be fully inoculated by the January 18th deadline, the 1st dose must be administered no later than December 14th, 2021.   
  • Set up a process to track, monitor and secure all vaccination records.  
  • Be ready to report out on vaccine status of all covered associates by the deadline as audits are subject to occur.
