The Biden Administration says it will now require most federal employees and contractors to get vaccinated.

That’s something a few companies around Connecticut have already done for their own workforces.

One such company is Masonicare, the largest nonprofit provider of senior care in Connecticut.

Masonicare’s President and CEO is J.P. Venoit.

He joined All Things Considered to share his thoughts on President Biden's executive order.

John Henry Smith is Connecticut Public’s host of All Things Considered, its flagship afternoon news program. In his 20th year as a professional broadcaster, he’s covered both news and sports.
