A US court demanded to overturn compulsory vaccination of health workers against COVID-19 healthcare workers in ten states. This is reported by TASS with reference to the decision published in the electronic database of the court.
The ruling states that the defendant, represented by the US government, must immediately stop coercing medical workers and other participants in Medicare health insurance programs and Medicaid for mandatory vaccinations in Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, and Wyoming. The court agreed with the plaintiffs' arguments that this decision of the federal government was not approved by the US Congress.
Previously, the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration ordered all companies with more than 100 employees to vaccinate their employees against COVID-19 by January 4, 2022. or require unvaccinated employees to take a coronavirus test at least once a week. 11 states have already filed a lawsuit against such a measure.
