Supreme Court Declines to Hear Vaccine Mandate Case

Emergency appeal filed by Maine health workers. 

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an emergency appeal of a vaccine requirement imposed on health care workers in Maine. It was the first time a statewide vaccine mandate had approached the Supreme Court. The justices have previously rejected challenges made by New York City teachers and Indiana University staff and students. 

Justice Stephen Breyer rejected the emergency appeal but left the door open to try again as the state will begin enforcing its mandate on October 29. Most health care workers in the state have complied with the requirement, while other workers have opted to quit. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the justices of the Supreme Court as they decide which appeals to hear.
  • For governing officials to consider the rights and freedoms of the law as they impose mandates.
  • For those who face receiving the inoculation or losing their jobs.
