The Department of Veterans Affairs will require 115,000 of its frontline health care workers to be vaccinated against the coronavirus in the next two months, making it the first federal agency to mandate that employees be inoculated, government officials said on Monday.
The move comes as concern is growing that the substantial portion of the population that has not been vaccinated is contributing to the rapid spread of the highly contagious Delta variant.
The mandate will apply to workers who are “the most patient-facing,” Mr. McDonough said, including doctors, dentists, registered nurses, physician assistants and some specialists. Beginning on Wednesday, those health care workers will have eight weeks to get fully vaccinated or face penalties including possible removal, he said.

Now "Veterans Administration" is certainly not what you'd call it if you have ever served in the military or hope to receive care there.
The "Department of Veterans Affairs" is its proper name, by analogy with, e.g., the "Bureau of Indian Affairs."
The adverse implications of that word "Affairs" are present in both cases with the U.S. government. Dudes are picking up ladies, to be frank.
It's the gross assumption of common extramarital affairs in a pernicious environment of prostitution and loose morals.
Plenty of pretty female nurses are available to perform caregiving tasks for the men, part of a military "haircut" as a "straight man" who isn't going to refuse or turn down the attentions of the ladies.

I don't think you can mandate an emergency use only vaccine, but I'm not a lawyer. It just sounds wrong.
