SCOTUS declines appeal of health worker challenge to vaccine mandate

Posted On: Oct. 4, 2022 10:03 AM CST

The U.S. Supreme Court on Oct. 3 declined to hear a challenge by Missouri and nine other states – mostly Republican-led – to President Joe Biden's COVID-19 vaccine mandate for workers in health care facilities that receive federal funds, Reuters reports. The justices turned away an appeal by the states after a lower court declined to immediately consider their claims that the vaccine rule violates federal administrative law and tramples on powers reserved for the states under the U.S. Constitution.
