NYC ends COVID-19 vaccine mandate for municipal workers
Former New York City teacher Rachel Maniscalco and GOP strategist Ford O’Connell react to COVID vaccine mandates beginning to get lifted nationwide on ‘The Evening Edit.’
President Biden's mandate that about 3.5 million federal employees get vaccinated against COVID-19 was blocked by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday.
The president originally issued the executive order in September 2021, requiring workers to be vaccinated unless they have a medical or religious exemption.
U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Brown issued an injunction blocking the mandate in January 2022, but a three-judge panel on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated the mandate last April.
