United CEO Scott Kirby and President Brett Hart told employees in a joint memo that more than 99% of its U.S.-based employees, aside from those who submitted for accommodation, have been vaccinated since the airline rolled out its policy on Aug. 6.
Originally, the airline had 600 employees who did not comply with the policy, but the number has since trickled now down to 232, according to United.
