Disney is giving all of its non-union employees 60 days to get a full vaccination and has begun talks for union employees.

“Vaccines are the best tool we have to help control this global pandemic and protect our employees,” the group said in a statement.

The entertainment giant also decided to re-impose the mask on its visitors in closed areas of its amusement parks.

Google and Facebook also announced on Wednesday that they will require all of their employees brought to their workplaces to be vaccinated.

Uber followed suit Thursday, according to US media.

According to an internal memo seen by AFP, Walmart will also require employees working in headquarters and those who work in regional offices and who travel regularly to be vaccinated by October 4.

To encourage employees working in its stores, the group doubled the vaccination premium to $150.

Twitter, for its part, decided to close its New York and San Francisco offices, suspending all plans to reopen other sites.

Officials not left out: Joe Biden took a series of measures Thursday to boost vaccination in the United States, including requiring millions of federal employees to either vaccinate or wear masks in ongoing and regular testing.
