Tyson Foods announced this week that the company will be requiring front-line employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by Nov. 1.
Workers who show proof of vaccination will receive a $200 bonus.
Tyson Foods has a facility located in Albany that employs several people in the area.
Less than half of Tyson’s workforce is vaccinated, chief executive Donnie King said Tuesday in a memo to employees. Tyson leadership will have to be vaccinated by Sept. 24, while other office workers will have until Oct. 1.
