State Actions on Mandated COVID-19 Vaccinations
SPECIAL EDITION AHPA POLICY BRIEF
Both the CMS and the OSHA COVID-19 vaccine mandates have faced pushback from several states. As of November 19th, 27 states have filed lawsuits against the OSHA mandate; 12 states have filed lawsuits against CMS. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld their temporary stay against the OSHA vaccine mandate. The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has been selected to hear the consolidated lawsuit. At this time, it is too early to know what the outcome of these lawsuits will be.

AHPA will keep you updated in future Policy Brief editions as these cases unfold.
