Lawsuits building to block federal government HCW vaccination mandate

Editor's Note

A coalition of 12 states, on November 15, sued the federal government to block a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) mandate requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for healthcare workers (HCWs) in facilities participating in CMS programs, the November 16 Becker’s Hospital Review reports.

This complaint follows a lawsuit filed November 10 by a coalition of 10 other states over the HCW vaccine mandate.

Also, the US Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in New Orleans, on November 12, kept its halt on the federal government's vaccinate-or-test mandate for businesses with more than 100 employees.
