Supreme Court rejects Biden's COVID vaccine rule for businesses, allows health care worker mandate

YouTube video

The U.S. Supreme Court will allow the Biden administration to enforce a nationwide COVID-19 vaccine requirement for health care workers. But the court rejected a vaccine-or-test mandate for large companies. CBS News legal contributor Jessica Levinson and CBS News chief legal correspondent Jan Crawford join Tony Dokoupil on CBSN to explain the rulings.

  1. it's not blocked… tech companies like Google are still mandating it as if it's legal to force experimental drugs into the arms of its massive employees group.

  2. It does not seem right to lump everybody into one group and say that all people must be vaccinated. What about the people who have stopped breathing or had a seizure from previous vaccines. They literally could die and fear for their life over a forced medical choice! Or what about my coworker who is recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and is afraid to put any kind of new vaccine into her immune system. Another coworker who is trying to get pregnant and wants to breast-feed and just does not want to take a new vaccine at this time. These good hardworking people are losing their livelihoods and being discriminated against. Also let’s factor in the thousands and thousands of FAKE vaccine cards in every county!!!! People go around working, shopping and socializing with people who are not vaccinated but they have no idea!! With something that is impossible to control, people should not be penalized and segregated… it all defies logic!!!!

  3. There are treatments that were blocked and monoclonal antibodies work! No I will not comply. Your healthcare will collapse

  4. They're doing this in Tennessee right now. My wife is fixing to lose her job that she went to college for. We just bought a house 3 years ago with children. And now idk what we will do.

  5. How many vaccines and boosters are they going to mandate? Sure, let’s use the healthcare workers as perpetual Guinea pigs, that’s a great idea! And meanwhile, let’s have the public vaccinate too and put more stress on the healthcare system! Just wonderful. My best friend is a nurse and she tells me you have to be your own doctor these days. Keep all your records and do a lot of research, don’t depend on short-staffed, stressed healthcare workers for answers. The US is purposely hurting its healthcare system.

  6. The masks don't work unless everyone wears one. The vaccines don't work unless everyone has one. The lies don't work unless everyone believes them.

  7. If you have no rights in healthcare then quit your job and start a new career driving for Prime Trucking inc ,they are the best in the industry and will train you for free ..
    Jesus Bless You

  8. Of the 16 immunizations the CDC recommends for children and teens, all 50 states (plus the District of Columbia) mandate diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), polio, measles, rubella and chickenpox. In addition, every state except Iowa mandates immunization against mumps.

    Vaccine mandates have been around for a long time. Get used to it.

  9. There needs to be a way out for people who can't get vaccinated due to various medical reasons, which isn't a small number.

  10. what supreme court judges said ;now American can die free,need not to follow science .As for the exception to the healthcare ,because those judges afraid if they are in hospital ,better not letting health worker infected them ! Great decision for America .

  11. I'm pretty convinced at this point that politics are one of the sole reasons why Covid is still an alarming thing. I've scrolled through these dumb comments and see all these people saying "oh im not getting the vaccine cus trump says this or biden says that" like you guys are really gonna make this decision by what two old bags tell you to do? And I'm not addressing those who won't get the vaccine cus of the survival rate or anything like that, AT LEAST they got their own mind, but some of you guys are making really important decisions only by what politicians tell you and not what the doctors do, which is honestly very disappointing.

  12. It's crazy to think that if a Republican spearheaded the vaccine rollout, all these Covid+ anti-vax bros would have been first in line to get the jab! The country would be 90%+ vaccinated, Delta, and Omicron would have barely phased us, less labor shortage, less supply chain crisis, fewer mask mandates… and some of you crybabies might have even gotten your Playstation 5 for Christmas! Make anti-vaxxers hippy again!

  13. I think if this wasn’t forced more people would have gotten the vaccines freely on their own will. Another failure from the democrat party.

  14. What’s going end up happening is y’all already let go of the non vaccinated healthcare workers because of the mandatory force, nooow there not going to be hardly none because there rights is being force again, and that’s why they quit in the first place

  15. What happened to Mr. "I'm going to shut down the virus?" There have been more COVID cases with a vaccine in 2021 than in 2020. He's a failure and a lot of people know it. Let's go Brandon!

  16. Let's go Brandon,,🤣🤣🤣..keep your poision that doesn't work..natural immunity is best as long as you are not elderly or underlying condition..but there is no money in immunity

  17. Luke 14:26-27
    26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
    27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

    Matthew 10:36
    36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

    Mark 13:12-13
    12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
    13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

    Luke 21:16-19
    16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
    17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.
    18 But there shall not a hair of head perish.
    19 In your patience possess ye your souls.

    1 John 2:15-17
    15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. if any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
    16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
    17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

  18. Before any federal Congressional bill is published for consideration by Congress, the specific section of the constitution giving the federal government the power to impose that law on the states should be named explaining how it applies. The same requirements should apply to executive orders.

  19. What an absolute shame it is that the court is allowing this ridiculous mandate to inject experimental pharmaceuticals into medical workers who were previously called heroes and essential workers for the last two years.
