Supremes Rule On Biden’s Federal Employee COVID Vaccine Mandate

Joe Biden, president of the United States, ordered government workers to get vaccinated. The target was to have more than 3.5 million workers vaccinated. However, the court challenged this as they felt it was not fair.

Workers that did not get vaccinated would lose their jobs. 

The supreme court ruled against the mandate vaccination policy by Biden. The ruling left him disappointed and held that workers could get the dose willingly. 

He also expressed that businesses should determine whether the workplace environment will be safe for their employees. 

A comparison made in the court compared the safety of people between the risk of transmitting COVID-19 and the dangers of crime exposed to people daily.  

The court concluded that the dangers people face daily do not compare to that of not being vaccinated. 

Biden emphasized that the move to vaccinate workers will save lives, and the U.S. government will see that the project will receive funding to succeed. 

In his argument, vaccination of the workers will create a safer environment for them and everyone following the rising cases of COVID-19 and OMRICORN. 

However, challengers spearheaded by Ohio and (NFIB) urged the justices to stop OSHA’s rule following a lower court lifting an injunction against it. Companies were supposed to comply with the OSHA’s law starting Monday. 

According to the court, mandating the vaccination of COVID-19 interferes with the rights of people. It also undermines the safe environment a workplace is supposed to provide. 

Gerald Harmon, a medicine specialist, was among the people who were pleased with the court’s decision. 

The decision allowing the policy to mandate vaccines was made on December 17, 2021. The Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals passed the bill to mandate the policy.
