U.S. President Joe Biden has told millions of American government workers and contractors to be vaccinated against coronavirus or face compulsory testing and other restrictions.
The federal government is the largest employer in the U.S.
The announcement follows a resurgence of infections fueled by the Delta variant.
Biden also urged the payment of 100 dollars to people who receive a jab.
"I know the plan that people get vaccinated may sound unfair to folks who've gotten vaccinated already. But here's the deal. If incentives help us beat this virus, I believe we should use them. We all benefit if we can get more people vaccinated."
