In order to be able to return to company’s offices, Meta staff will have to show proof that they received a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot.

Meta, the owner of Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and virtual reality company Oculus, announced that its offices will fully reopen on March 28, 2022.

However, only fully vaccinated and boosted Meta employees will be allowed to enter.

In order to be able to return to company’s offices, Meta staff will have to show proof that they received a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot.

A spokesperson for the company said that “given the evidence of booster effectiveness, we are expanding our vaccination requirement to include boosters.”

Meta previously enforced a mandate which requires all in-person employees to have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Facebook follows into the footsteps of other US companies that already mandated boosters. While the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has not changed the definition of “fully vaccinated,” it encouraged Americans to stay “up to date” with regards to protection against the virus last week.

However, the Pentagon signaled last month that it may still make booster vaccines mandatory for soldiers.

There has been ongoing debate over the need to make COVID-19 booster shots a must for all.

Several high-profile US politicians, all vaccinated and boosted, have recently tested positive for COVID-19, further fueling the booster debate while seemingly giving arguments to opponents of vaccination mandates.

Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin was one of the latest US politicians to test positive this month after being boosted in October. He argued, however, that he would have fared far worse against the disease if he had not been double-vaccinated and boosted.

New York Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – who also received her booster in the Fall – tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday, after returning from her maskless Florida party spree, and is reportedly recovering from the virus at home.

My husband was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s disease at 67. His symptoms were shuffling of feet, slurred speech, low volume speech, degradation of handwriting, horrible driving skills, and his right arm is held at 45 degree angle. He was placed on Sinemet for 7 months and then Sifrol and rotigotine were introduced which replaced the Sinemet but he had to stop due to side effects. We tried every shot available but nothing was working. There has been little if any progress in finding a reliable treatment, I quit my meds due to side effects. Our care provider introduced us to Kycuyu Health Clinic Parkinson’s herbal treatment. The treatment is a miracle. My husband has recovered significantly! Visit kycuyuhealthclinic. co m
