Federal Court blocks Biden vaccine mandate protects health care workers in 10 states

… federal court barred the Biden administration from enforcing a vaccine mandate for health care workers in 10 states

… doctors and nurses can’t be fired for refusing the COVID vaccine

… “Congress did not grant CMS authority to mandate the vaccine”

… “only a clear authorization from Congress would empower CMS to act,”

… “According to CMS, the effectiveness of the vaccine to prevent disease transmission by those vaccinated is not currently known

… the mandate will have a crippling effect on a significant number of healthcare facilities

… jeopardize the lives of numerous vulnerable citizens

… The prevalent, tangible, and irremediable impact of the mandate tips the balance of equities in favor of a preliminary injunction,”

… These are 10 states that were part of one of the lawsuits as many as 27 states filed against the mandate. They claimed that the vaccine mandate was unconstitutional
