Disney World is requiring all unionized employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The deadline for all unionized employees to be fully vaccinated is Oct. 22.

The union says Disney World agreed to host on-site vaccination events over the next few weeks.

“Getting vaccinated is the best way for workers to protect themselves from this deadly virus,” the union stated.

The union says “reasonable accommodations” will be made for people with religious or medical concerns.

If unionized workers fail to get fully vaccinated by Oct. 22. will lose their job, the union stated.

The requirement was set on the heels of the FDA granted final approval for the Pfizer vaccine.
