Vaccine Mandates, The Delta Variant and Children’s Vaccines

Vaccine Mandates, The Delta Variant and Children’s Vaccines

On Thursday, September 9th President Biden announced a federal vaccine mandate, requiring millions of U.S. workers to choose between proof of vaccination or weekly COVID-19 testing. While the President previously said he did not believe the vaccine should be mandatory, this vaccine requirement for federal workers comes amid rising cases in the country due to the Delta variant. Professor of Medicine at NYU Langone Health and Fox News Medical Contributor, Dr. Marc Siegel joins to breakdown the latest COVID-19 news, why Delta is projected to remain the dominant variant despite the discovery of a new antibody-resistant variant, the interim solution of home testing while manufacturers work on a vaccine for children under 12 and what the future of annual COVID boosters may be post-pandemic. Dr. Siegel also talks about his success speaking to vaccine-hesitant Americans using understanding and facts.

Being in the military is a difficult and dangerous job but many veterans may tell you that leaving and transitioning into civilian life and starting all over can be just as hard. Decorated retired U.S. Navy SEAL Sean Matson knew he wanted to be a Navy SEAL at the age of 12. He served for 13 years and did three tours in Iraq until he retired before he made the change to become an entrepreneur. Like many other veterans, Matson’s transition to the civilian workforce and becoming an entrepreneur was not easy. He joins today to discuss his struggles with finding purpose after thinking he would be a career NAVY SEAL with no backup plans. Matson also talks about one of his companies, Matbock, which makes government-contracted military equipment. He also talks about hiring veterans for his companies and shares what they bring into the workforce that can be beneficial to any company.
