AFA Action petitions for Supreme Court to revisit vaccine mandate for healthcare workers

AFA Action: “There is no factual basis to support the assertion that forcing a COVID-19 vaccine injection ‘will substantially reduce’ the chances of a healthcare worker becoming infectious”

January 27, 2022

TUPELO, Miss. — In light of the recent Supreme Court ruling that allows the vaccine mandate to remain in effect for healthcare workers, American Family Association Action , the governmental affairs affiliate of the American Family Association (AFA, afa.net),is petitioning the Court to revisit the decision and hear the case again.

While the Supreme Court decided to overturn OSHA’s vaccine mandate for businesses with over 100 employees, the Court also ruled that Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra did have the authority to require all health care workers at institutions that receive Medicare and Medicaid funding to get the COVID-19 vaccine, unless they get medical or religious exemptions.

Rob Chambers, Executive Vice President of AFA Action, stated, “[The Court’s] destructive opinion failed to shield healthcare workers from the federal mandate to get injected with the COVID-19 vaccine and boosters. It violates their freedom of choice and rights of conscience.”

Chambers continued, “There is no factual basis to support the assertion that forcing a COVID-19 vaccine injection ‘will substantially reduce’ the chances of a healthcare worker becoming infectious. Such a notion is based on opinion, not scientific fact. For Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Kavanaugh to embrace this baseless assertion and use this fallacious information to uphold President Biden’s employer vaccine mandate for healthcare workers is a most egregious violation of justice and the rule of law.”
