Injunction on President Biden’s Vaccine Mandate for Medical Workers Goes Countrywide

by | Dec 1, 2021


Writing Monday regarding a United States district court that day ordering, in the case of Missouri v. Biden, an injunction on the implementation and enforcement of President Joe Biden’s mandate that millions of health care workers take experimental coronavirus “vaccine” shots, I suggested that that order that applies in ten states may be a step toward a countrywide suspension of the mandate.

Here is an update. The following day — Tuesday, a countrywide suspension of the mandate came into being.

On Tuesday, a judge of the US District Court for the Western District of Louisiana followed through with establishing a countrywide suspension of the mandate. The judge’s order arose in a case in which fourteen US states have together challenged the mandate.

Judge Terry A. Doughty, in issuing the Tuesday preliminary injunction order for the case of Louisiana v. Becerra, made the order apply in the rest of the US outside the states where the mandate was enjoined the previous day. He explained that he made this decision because of the need of uniformity in response to the mandate of “nationwide scope.”

Terry also indicated in the new preliminary injunction order that it appears the constitutional failing of the enjoined vaccine mandate for health care workers may persist even if the mandate were enacted by Congress instead of, as it has been, just unilaterally decreed by the executive branch. Terry wrote, “It is not clear that even an Act of Congress mandating a vaccine would be constitutional.”
