Do you all think there will be a point when all federal employees would be required to take a Covid19 vaccine?

Probably some but not all, although that's just a guess. A decent article on the topic is linked below.

Good article. This is already happening in some facilities: "For example, healthcare providers who work for the Department of Veterans Affairs, who are charged with caring for our nation’s veterans may be required to receive a COVID-19 vaccine as a necessary requirement for their position to prevent transmission of the virus in VA hospitals."

It is interesting to think about.

My position could 100% telework efficiently but I'm sure management wants to see us in the office, just because.

As people take it and return to the office, how do they deal with someone who won't take it? (i.e. no medical reason, no religious reason - healthy person.)
