This week, the U.S. Federal Maritime commissioners Daniel B. Maffei and Carl w. bentzel wrote to the governors of major port States urging them to give priority to vaccinating the marine workforce to protect the country's supply chain.

In an earlier letter to the Biden administration, the letters encouraging priority to be given to vaccinating maritime workers were addressed to the governors of Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, South Carolina, Texas and Washington, personal protective equipment (PPE) and rapid testing.

In his letter to the governor, the Commissioner of FMC wrote: "as we continue to hear that the visit is inadequate, we are writing to you today to emphasize the importance of this issue."

Several ports in the United States, including Los Angeles and long beach, the largest ports in the United States, have experienced serious delays, partly due to the outbreak of cowid-19 among port workers.

"Due to the massive disruption of the labor force at cowid-19, it will be disastrous for the immediate and long-term flow of the supply chain and the delivery of goods to Americans. We have to deal with the immediate health challenges faced by the continuous outbreak of cowid-19, which has an impact on the increasing workload at sea and the unprecedented surge in numbers. "

"The sacrifice, resilience and selfless dedication of the people working in the maritime industry keep our supply chain running and our economy connected, and will lay the foundation for what we hope to be a country in 2021. To this end, we must provide immediate vaccinations to maritime personnel. "

Several industry organizations, including the American Association of port authorities, American waterway operators, inland river basins, ports and terminals, the National Association of coastal employers and the National Maritime Safety Association, have also urged priority to be given to U.S. Maritime Labor.
