Can employers legally require employees to vaccinate against COVID-19?

Scientists say the U.S. will need about 70% of the population to get vaccinated to reach the herd immunity threshold that would effectively put an end to the COVID-19 pandemic. Michael LeRoy, an expert in labor law and labor relations at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, spoke with News Bureau business and law editor Phil Ciciora about the legality of employers mandating that employees vaccinate themselves against the novel coronavirus.
