Dr. Matt McCarthy describes seeing a ‘disturbingly large’ percentage of patients with lingering COVID-19 symptoms.
JetBlue Airways said Tuesday that nearly all of its staff will be vaccinated against COVID-19.
The vast majority of crewmembers were already fully vaccinated or have started vaccinations, the airline told FOX Business in a statement.

"Out of 21,000 crewmembers, only about 300 have said they do not plan to get vaccinated. A limited number of crewmembers have indicated interest in a religious or medical accommodation and we will work through these individually to review and evaluate each of those crewmember’s situations. It will take some time to work through these applications and we expect that process will continue even after January 4," JetBlue said.
The federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate deadline is Jan. 4, 2022.
JetBlue said the federal government's goal to get more people vaccinated was to prevent serious illness and death and help get the industry "back to normal."
