CHATTANOOGA, Tenn (WDEF) – According to TVA, employees will now have to get the Covid-19 vaccine.

All employees must be vaccinated on November 22nd, 2021. 

When asked what would happen if employees refused the vaccine, TVA said they are still working on the protocols for this new mandate. 

A TVA spokesperson says The goal is to develop a secure system through which employees will document their vaccination status.

According to a statement from a TVA spokesperson, “After reviewing the recently issued Executive Order and additional guidance received from the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force for federal employees, TVA employees will be required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by November 22, 2021. TVA has consistently encouraged our workforce to become vaccinated since vaccines became available to them, as this offers the best protection against serious illness. We are currently working on developing the specific processes and procedures needed to implement this new requirement, including the development of a secure system through which employees will document their vaccination status. As new information becomes available, we will share it with employees. Until then, TVA’s current COVID-19 protection protocols will remain in place.”
