CHICAGO (Reuters) – Delta Air Lines said Tuesday that full vaccination against COVID-19 will be a condition of employment for 1,500 new flight attendant positions it seeks to fill.

The airline said that all new employees, including current Delta employees enrolled in the flight attendant training program, must be fully vaccinated before the training begins.

The announcement came days after Delta Air said employees who choose not to have a vaccination will have to pay an additional $ 200 per month for their company-sponsored health plan.
