Meta mandates boosters for employees working at U.S. campuses, eyes late March reopening


Facebook parent Meta Platforms Inc. FB, -1.12% is eyeing a reopening of its U.S. campuses on March 28, but it comes with a caveat: Employees who wish to work out of those offices will require a COVID-19 booster shot. “Boosters provide increased protection,” a Meta spokesman told the Wall Street Journal on Monday. “Given the evidence of booster effectiveness, we are expanding our vaccination requirement to include boosters.” Meta’s move is the latest by an American company to ramp up additional doses amid a surge in the omicron variant.
