Biden, disappointed by Supreme Court blockade of business vaccination mandate

-

The president of EE.UU., Joe Biden, was “disappointed” on Thursday by the decision of the country’s Supreme Court to block its mandate to large companies, which required that they require their employees to be vaccinated or to submit weekly negative tests for COVID-19.

In a statement, Biden lamented that the highest court in the country has “chosen to block common sense requirements that save lives for employees of large companies, based on science and the law.”

He stressed that, as a result of the ruling, it will be up to states and companies to decide whether to make workplaces and stores “as safe as possible” for employees and workers, requiring that they be vaccinated.

Despite this setback, Biden said he will continue to advocate for employers to do “the right thing” to protect the health of Americans and the economy.

“I urge business leaders to immediately join those who have stepped up, including one-third of the Fortune 100 companies – and establish vaccination requirements to protect their employees, consumers and communities,” he urged .

In the note, Biden recalled that his Administration began to institute vaccination mandates at the end of July, when there were 90 million unimmunized Americans, which today has dropped to 35 million.

“These vaccination requirements were applied to members of the Armed Forces, federal workers, contractors, health workers and large companies,” listed Biden, who added that if his government had not imposed those mandates, the US would now have more deaths. by covid-19 and even more hospitalizations.

The White House spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, was asked in her daily press conference about the Supreme Court’s resolution and announced that the Government will continue working with employers to convey to them “clearly” the benefit of requiring vaccination or testing for covid to your workers.

The presidential order that required weekly vaccination or negative COVID-19 test results for employees of all companies with 100 or more workers was due to begin in February.

On the other hand, the Supreme Court did give the green light to another Biden mandate to vaccinate professionals in more than 50,000 health facilities in the US, those that receive federal subsidies from the Medicare or Medicaid programs, and in which about 17 million people work.

In this regard, the president said in his statement that this decision “will save lives”: “the lives of patients seeking care in medical centers, as well as the lives of doctors, nurses and others who work there.
