with exemptions granted only for employees who document religious or health reasons for not getting the shots, 

It’s not really a mandate if you can just sign a no thank you form.

A couple months ago UA pilots were getting about $3K to get vaxed.

Well, that’s the end of United.

This will make it easier to find both employees and customers. Smart business decision.

Those who don't will be terminated, with exemptions granted only for employees who document religious or health reasons for not getting the shots, officials said.

I agree with exemptions for health reasons, but why should religious opinions given special status?

Are they more valid than other opinions given for not getting vaccinated?

Anyway, good move overall.

What about passengers?

Smart. No shoes, no shirt, no vax, no entry.

"The United States requires people entering the country, including U.S. citizens, to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test, and the Biden administration plans to require non-U.S. citizens to be vaccinated before entering the country."

I guess this only applies to air travel? Or is it for those that use "traditional" border crossing customs locations?

It’s pretty dire as I’ve heard…

Dumb decision. Give the people a right to choose. Waiting for downvotes

Give the people a right to choose.

They have the right to choose. No one is forcing them to get vaccinated. They can choose to not vaccinate, but of course they have to then deal with the outcomes of this policy being desired by both the courts as well as the overwhelming majority of the population, which is to not be allowed to work for this airline anymore.

It's so right-wing to want to have your cake and eat it too.
