Walmart to mandate COVID-19 vaccine for some managers, corporate employees

Walmart has become the latest company to announce that it will make COVID-19 vaccines mandatory for part of its workforce.

Walmart, the country’s largest retailer, announced that managers who travel to multiple locations in the U.S. and all employees at its corporate campuses must be vaccinated by Oct. 4.

Walmart stated its vaccination policy would address individuals who cannot be vaccinated for medical or religious reasons.

“As we all know, the pandemic is not over, and the Delta variant has led to an increase in infection rates across much of the U.S.,” the announcement reads.

“Our offices remain open with safety measures in place, and we will continue with our phased approach and only allow limited capacity for now. We want to get to a place where we can use our offices and be together safely.”

Walmart also stated that its goal is to be back into offices for in-person work at pre-pandemic levels by Labor Day, but that it would continue to “monitor the situation.”

The vaccination requirement does not apply to all Walmart employees, including those in stores.
