Excluding those seeking exemptions, United said 99.5% of US-based employees have now been vaccinated against COVID-19.

United, which in early August became the first US carrier to require COVID-19 vaccination for all domestic workers, had by Monday asked for proof of vaccination or faced termination.

It later softened its position, saying workers could save their jobs if they chose to get vaccinated before their formal termination meetings.

A company spokesperson said more employees have provided proof of vaccination since Monday. The airline expects a further drop in the number of unvaccinated employees in the coming days.
