WASHINGTON President Joe Biden is calling some Republican governors knights for resisting new federal vaccine requirements that he hopes will feature the growing delta variant.

Biden visited Brookland High School on Friday, just a short drive from the White House. He was creating the case for new federal rules that could affect 100 million Americans.

All employers with more than 100 workers need to be vaccinated or tested weekly for the virus, affecting about 80 million Americans. About 17 million health facility workers receiving federal Medicare or Medicaid also need to be fully vaccinated.

I am so disappointed that especially some Republican governors have been so cavalier with the health of these children, so cavalier with the health of their communities, Biden said during the visit. This is not a game

Republicans and some union officials say he is overstepping his authority. Asked about potential legal challenges to the new vaccine requirements, Biden replied, Caution. ___

Here is what else is happening:

ATLANTA Protests by faculty members continue in Georgia’s public universities, although leaders of Georgia’s university system do not back down from their position that schools may not require masks or vaccines.

Incumbent Chancellor Teresa MacCartney says those policies will not change, noting that the system will follow the direction of Gov. Brian Kemp and Republican lawmakers who control the strings of university systems.

We are fulfilling our institutional missions to provide higher education and services to students in a way that is best for them, MacCartney said. These expectations have been made clear since before the start of the semester. It should come as no surprise. There are consequences for those who do not follow and do not do their job.

The remarks received a round of applause from the regents, who were mostly masked. They were surrounded by dozens of university presidents and administrators, who were mostly disguised.

MacCartney spoke Thursday, the same day faculty groups at the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech and Georgia State University passed resolutions calling for masks and vaccine mandates.

WASHINGTON Senior Democratic senators are putting pressure on Medicare to make COVID-19 vaccination rates in the nursing home easily accessible to consumers.

Although the Biden administration is seeking vaccination for all nursing home staff, Sens Ron Wyden of Oregon and Bob Casey of Pennsylvania say it could take months. They are asking Medicare to post vaccination rates among residents and staff of individual nursing homes on its Care Comparison website, a consumer-friendly site.

The data is available on completely separate (government) websites, wrote Senate Medicare chief Chiquita Brooks-LaSure on Friday. Even if a person can find these sites online, vaccination records for individual facilities are not displayed prominently, creating additional barriers.

Medicare officials say they are working on the problem.

The senators cited an Associated Press report on the blasts attributed to unvaccinated staff. Wyden and Casey chair the Finance and Aging committees, respectively.

The committee said Friday that after evaluating the available evidence, it is issuing a draft recommendation that women from the second trimester of pregnancy onwards and breastfeeding mothers receive two doses of an mRNA vaccine.

Oxford University professor Sarah Gilbert told The Telegraph on Friday that the immunity from the vaccine was well maintained against the delta variant.

While the elderly and those who are compromised by immunity may need boosters, the standard two-dose regimen should protect most people, she says.

The comments come as the Joint Vaccination and Immunization Committee, a panel of experts advising the British government, is expected to make recommendations in the coming days on the scale of each incentive program.
