Biden’s Federal Vaccine Mandate Goes Before SCOTUS
The Supreme Court last Friday weighed whether a pair of vaccine-related mandates from the Biden administration governing large businesses and health care facilities can move forward, putting on display the national divide over COVID-19 vaccination and highlighting the latest surge, driven by the Omicron variant. The two cases cover Biden’s vaccine-or-testing requirement for employers with 100 or more employees, as well as a vaccine mandate for healthcare workers at federally-funded facilities. Proponents of the mandates say the rules are crucial in avoiding more COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths. See a full update here.
