Yesterday, the Biden administration released the long-awaited details on the vaccine and testing mandates they are placing on private businesses and for health care workers at facilities who care for Medicare recipients.
I have long been clear about my opposition to vaccine mandates and believe that personal health decisions should be left between individuals and their health care providers. There are already dozens of lawsuits that have been filed challenging the constitutionality of this executive order. I eagerly await each of these lawsuits being adjudicated by the courts.
Here’s a summary of the details released this week:
Despite the “emergency”, enforcement dates are still months away and the administration already delayed enforcement of the federal contractor mandate that was set to begin on December 8th.
With vaccination rates already high, widely available, and the pandemic waning, this mandate from the Biden administration serves little purpose other than to further divide the American people.
Stay tuned on this as legal developments emerge in the weeks and months ahead.
