A federal judge in Missouri has blocked US President Joe Biden’s vaccination mandate for health worker in 10 states, saying it would need Congressional approval – which it does not have.
United States District Court Judge Matthew Schelp has issued a preliminary injunction on Monday, blocking the White House order that all workers employed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) were to be vaccinated by January 4, 2022 or face lose the job.
“The nature and breadth of the CMS mandate requires clear Congressional authorization, and Congress has not given any, “ Schelp said, adding that the injunction is justified by the “Vast economic and political significance” of the mandate.

Monday’s ruling means that Missouri, Nebraska, Arkansas, Kansas, Iowa, Wyoming, Alaska, South Dakota, North Dakota and New Hampshire will not be subject to the warrant while the injunction is in force. The White House has the option to challenge it before the Eighth Circuit.
