U.S. Supreme Court Blocks Employer Vaccine Mandate; Lets Healthcare Mandate Stand

The U.S. Supreme Court late last week blocked President Biden’s vaccine mandate for large employers but ruled to keep a federal mandate in place for certain health care workers.

In a 6-3 vote, the court granted the applications to stay the OSHA rule mandating that employers with at least 100 employees require covered workers to receive a COVID–19 vaccine or undergo weekly testing.

The Court ruled 5-4 to allow the health care worker mandate for workers at health care facilities that accept Medicare and Medicaid. Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Kavanaugh voting differently than they did on the large employer mandate.

Note: both the federal and state COVID vaccine mandates fir health care do not include private, independent physician practices although many in Maine have implemented their own.
