Federal Contractor Vaccine Mandate Blocked Nationwide

Today, December 7, 2021, the Biden administration’s mandate for federal contractors’ employees to be vaccinated will be halted nationwide. The mandate, which was set to take effect on January 4, applies to approximately 25% of the nation’s workers whose employers do business with the federal government.

A federal judge in Georgia v. Biden, S.D. Ga., No. 21-cv-00163, blocked the mandate. The latest order follows a Kentucky federal judge’s grant last week of a preliminary injunction in a lawsuit involving Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio. The plaintiff states are arguing that the administration lacks the authority to require vaccinations and the mandates violate the U.S. Constitution.
