Vaccine adverse reactions covered by OWCP

DOL announced that the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) will cover vaccines obtained since the vaccine mandate executive order was announced.

Employees are authorized to get the vaccine on duty and are encouraged to do so, but even if you get it off duty, as long as it was received after the mandate went into effect, you are covered for any adverse reactions to the vaccine.
