Corona Virus The US Court of Appeals has suspended the employee vaccination regulation

The court justified its decision by saying that the regulation contained “serious legal and constitutional problems”.

The US Federal Court of Appeals suspended a US government order on Saturday requiring people who work for companies with more than 100 employees to receive both doses of the coronavirus vaccine as of January 4, 2022 — or to undergo regular testing and wear a headscarf. This was reported by Agence France-Presse.

“Therefore, the regulation has been suspended until this court takes further measures,” the court said in a statement.

The measure, first introduced by US President Joe Biden in September, was intended to cover about 84 million Americans working for medium and large-sized businesses. How many of them have not been vaccinated is unknown.

The rule is also for health professionals

The rule should also apply to 17 million health professionals or nurses – but for them there would be no substitute for regular testing, they would have to get vaccinated, but they would have the right to request an exemption on medical or religious grounds.

COVID-19 has killed more than 740,000 people in the United States. The US Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA) estimates that mandatory vaccination will save the lives of more than 6,500 employees and prevent more than 250,000 from being hospitalized in the next six months.
