A federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked the Biden administration from enforcing a vaccine mandate for healthcare workers in 10 states.

Judge Matthew Schelp of the Eastern District of Missouri issued the preliminary injunction for workers at Medicare- and Medicare-certified medical facilities in Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, New Hampshire, Nebraska, Wyoming, and North and South Dakota, according to court documents.

The 10 states had sued the Biden administration, claiming the vaccine mandate was unconstitutional.

Schelp — whom former President Donald Trump nominated to the bench in 2019 — said the public would benefit from the ruling "because it would ensure that federal agencies do not extend their power beyond the express delegation from Congress."

He said the mandate would impose a burden "on the ability of healthcare facilities to provide proper care, and thus, save lives."

Federal vaccine mandates have been the target of various lawsuits filed over the last few months as states push back on attempts by the Biden administration to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Earlier in November, over half of US states — mostly Republican-led — filed or joined lawsuits opposing a vaccine mandate for employees of large companies, Insider's Kevin Shalvey previously reported.

On one hand it makes some sense. On the other hand, it doesn't make much sense. Let freedom ring.

Not what I meant. The freedom part, that kinda makes sense, aspect is much different from the fact that these are the healthcare workers and that DOESN'T make sense.

Did you miss the part about it being unconstitutional?

What will the Dems want to mandate next?

It doesn't make sense for anyone to not want the vaccine, especially healthcare workers. But then, since when have people made sense?

It is sad that it has come to this.  It's unconstitutional in ALL states.

Yes it is, but we will never get it before the court unless they appeal, you think they are going to appeal in a red state?, no they aren't so they let the blue states continue with their unconstitutional mandates...

And the divide in America continues where red states and blue ones do diametrically opposite things on so many issues including wuhan virus.

And its telling that in those situations, the red states usually have a better outcome for the people.
