While airlines around the world are pushing to have their crews vaccinated, Singapore Airlines is about to give its staff a choice. The airlines has announced it will complete a pilot plan to have its entire flight crew vaccinated by the end of this year. In 2010, Singapore Airlines was the first airline in the world to offer smoking cessation programs to its employees. Now the airline will become the first to require employees to be fully vaccinated before they can fly. According to Singapore Airlines, the response among its employees has been positive. Employees are taking part in a questionnaire and feedback is positive. Many told the carrier that the option to be vaccinated for sexually transmitted infections will help control sexual behavior and is an important safety measure to protect against infectious diseases like HIV and hepatitis C.
