Vaccine is a voluntary thing at the VA.  I have no information about State or County levels.

The vaccines are currently voluntary at every level.

Exactly and that is because the vaccine was approved for nothing other than emergency use.  No one anywhere can be mandated or required to take the vaccine.

I'm not aware of any place that is mandating vaccination but it can be mandated as a condition of employment, entry into private property or places of public accommodation, etc.
