The city of Charlotte is mandating vaccines for airport employees, citing Biden’s vaccination mandate for federal contractors. The TSA has notified the Aviation Department that all applicable contracts between the two include the federal contractor vaccination mandate, assistant city manager Brent Cagle said. The first agreement will be effective on Jan. 18.
The federal contractor requirement will apply to all city of Charlotte employees who hold a Secured Identification Display Area badge. That includes aviation employees and employees from other departments that are assigned to the airport, like police and fire.
