OREANDA-NEWS. Only one percent of all U.S. adults quit their jobs in October due to employers' demands for mandatory coronavirus vaccinations, according to a study by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), a nonprofit charity.

The organization on Thursday published the results of a monthly study that examined the development of public opinion on the COVID-19 vaccine, in particular, it paid attention to the impact on workers of the decree of the President of the United States of America Joe Biden on compulsory vaccination. The research was carried out through surveys and analysis of statistical data.

“Despite numerous reports of employees quitting their jobs due to vaccination requirements, only five percent of unvaccinated workers say they lost their jobs because their employer required them to be vaccinated, which is one percent of the adult population of the country ", - said in a report published on the KFF website.

According to the study, one in four workers (25%) report that their employer has required the COVID-19 vaccine, up 16 percentage points from June. Half of the workers still say they don't want their employer to impose a vaccination requirement. More than a third (37%) of unvaccinated workers (5% of the country's adult population) said they would quit their job if this were the case.

In September, US President Joe Biden signed a decree mandating vaccinations for all federal employees, company personnel working for the government, and employees of private firms employing at least 100 people.

The United States remains in first place in the world in the number of infections and deaths from COVID-19. According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 45 million cases of infection have already been recorded in the country, more than 740 thousand people have died due to coronavirus. At least 67% of the population has been fully vaccinated.
