November 1, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) today issued the following statement regarding the updated federal contractor vaccine mandate guidance.

From Eric Hoplin, President and CEO:

“The flexibility provided in the updated guidance on the federal contractor vaccine mandate is an improvement and we appreciate the White House hearing our concerns and making these changes. We share the same commitment to help Americans get vaccinated, and are pleased to be able to do so in a way that won’t force our dedicated employees out of a job next month, which would have exacerbated the supply chain challenges and damaged our recovering economy.”
