I would quote a greater part of the Daily Wire article telling you how Jen Psaki ignored a question on how illegal aliens will not be required to adhere to the vaccine mandate; however, why drill in on things that you likely know?

Just as with other topics, liberal Biden shows himself to be predictably inconsistent
You already know that Joe Biden and the vacuous Millennial liberals in the White House hate Americans. Therefore, there seems little need to drag out an explanation of how liberals hate America. Nobody can cogently argue against the facts: they work to undermine our youths’ understanding of the origins of the nation (or approve of the working), they proselytize children into their cause (or finance this proselytization through our own tax dollars), and call for some groups to be condemned for the sins of their purported fathers while simultaneously insisting that the sins of the 9/11 terrorists (or the Islamist attacks on American soil that followed during the Obama years).
Therefore, why show any surprise when Dementia Joe (without comment) exempts illegal aliens from COVID-19 vaccination while he tries to terrorize Americans over the disease?
New York City Teachers’ Union Members
Spectrum News points to the possibility that New York teachers may be exempt from the vaccine mandate.
A resolution between the city and the union for public school teachers will grant new options for educators who are not vaccinated against COVID-19.
An independent arbitrator announced late Friday that teachers with specific documented medical or religious exemptions must be offered alternative work assignments. The arbitrator also said remote work must be available for vaccinated teachers with suppressed immune systems.
The arbitration calls for unpaid leave with health coverage, or a severance arrangement, for those who refuse to get the shot and do not qualify for an exemption. That unpaid leave would last through September of next year.
Schools Chancellor Meisha Porter commended the swiftness of the decision, saying, “We’re pleased that the binding Arbitration was issued before the first day of school and we will swiftly implement the terms.”
The teacher vaccine mandate is scheduled to go into effect Sept. 27.
According to the city education department, as of Friday morning at least 74% of department employees have been vaccinated, although the United Federation of Teachers union estimates over 80% of teachers have already been vaccinated.
There will be more than 700 vaccination sites in public schools across the city when classes begin Monday.

While this mandate may be more related to the New York vaccination mandate, radio reports have suggested AFT deals to protect teachers
Although the above report may center on the New York vaccine mandate, reports heard on various radio stations have suggested that the AFT has secured a deal with Biden.
Post office workers
The Epoch Times reports that Biden has exempt U.S. Postal workers from his vaccine mandate.
The United States Postal Service is not one of the agencies compelled to require COVID-19 vaccination under President Joe Biden’s new executive order, a spokesman said Friday.
“The COVID-19 vaccination requirements included in the White House executive order issued on September 9, 2021, for federal employees do not apply to the Postal Service,” a spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service, or USPS, told The Epoch Times in an email.
“Regarding other vaccination rules expected to be issued by the federal government, the Postal Service has no comment until those rules are issued and we have had a chance to review them,” he added.
Biden on Thursday ordered all federal employees to get a COVID-19 vaccine, with limited exceptions for approved medical or religious reasons.
“It is essential that Federal employees take all available steps to protect themselves and avoid spreading COVID-19 to their co-workers and members of the public,” Biden said in the order.
Biden said in remarks from Washington that the order would “require all executive branch federal employees to be vaccinated—all.”
An Executive Branch Agency as defined in 5 U.S. Code § 105 “means an Executive department, a Government corporation, and an independent establishment.”
The Postal Service is an independent agency of the Executive Branch. It was established in 2006, replacing the Cabinet-level U.S. Post Office Department. The head of the Postal Service is chosen by a nine-person Board of Governors; the board members are appointed by the president and require confirmation by the U.S. Senate.

As pointed out by the Klain retweet, Biden does not have the authority
As mentioned in a previous post where it was reported by Fox and discussed by Senator Ted Cruz, even the members of the Biden regime know that Biden does not have the authority to mandate vaccines.

Congress and Congressional staff
Newsweek points out that Congress and Congressional staff have been exempted from having to take the vaccine.
Biden issued two executive orders on Thursday requiring vaccination against COVID for federal workers and contractors who work for the federal government. He also asked the Department of Labor to issue an emergency order requiring businesses with more than 100 employees to ensure their workers are vaccinated or tested on a weekly basis.
However, Biden’s order on federal workers applies to employees of the executive branch. The House of Representatives and the Senate belong to the separate legislative branch, and the courts to the judicial branch of the federal government.
Biden’s COVID action plan – “Path Out of the Pandemic” – published on the White House website makes the effect of the vaccine mandate clear.
The plan says: “Building on the President’s announcement in July to strengthen safety requirements for unvaccinated federal workers, the President has signed an Executive Order to take those actions a step further and require all federal executive branch workers to be vaccinated.”

As long as this is a democracy of a sort, at least the Congress will be immune to Biden’s dictates
Truth of the matter is that this should start with law passed by Congress.
Evacuees from Afghanistan
AP News reports that Afghan evacuees (possible Taliban terrorists) don’t need COVID tests.
Amid the chaos and confusion at the airport, the United States said it had taken at least one step to ease requirements for those seeking to leave: COVID-19 tests.
Although Afghanistan had been a hotspot for the coronavirus pandemic, the State Department said Thursday that evacuees are not required to get a negative COVID-19 result to travel.
“A blanket humanitarian waiver has been implemented for COVID testing for all persons the U.S. government is relocating from Afghanistan,” the department said.
It referred questions about how the matter would be handled once evacuees arrive in the United States to the Department of Health and Human Services. Medical exams, including coronavirus tests, had been required for evacuees prior to Taliban’s weekend takeover of Kabul, which added extra urgency to efforts to get at-risk Afghans out of the country.

Admittedly, this article came about before Biden issued his mandate
Because this article appeared before Biden issued his vaccine mandate, it does not directly address the of whether Biden would exempt Afghan evacuees from the vaccine mandate. However, since evacuees were exempt from COVID tests and since a similar group (illegal aliens) are exempt from the vaccine mandate, it seems likely that evacuees will be exempt from the mandate.
