Vaccines

Here is a collection of cases and materials on COVID vaccination mandates, with some added materials on COVID mask mandates.  One of those mask mandate cases, a challenge to the CDC’s airplane mandate, is over on the CDC page.

The vaccination mandate cases start with the Supreme Court’s decisions on stays in the CMS health care worker vaccination mandate and the OSHA vaccination or test mandate cases, with the Supreme Court level filings in those cases.

Then there are the Federal Register notices, etc., on the CMS health care worker vaccination mandate, the OSHA vaccination or test mandate, and the HeadStart worker vaccination mandate;

Followed by other cases on the CMS mandate, including lower-level filings in the Eastern Missouri and Western Louisiana cases;

Then there are two cases on the HeadStart mandate; and

Other cases on the OSHA mandate.

After that — Cases on the federal contractor mandate (brought by States);

Cases on the federal employee mandate (non-military);

And cases involving religious exemptions, whether to military mandates or to State mandates or, in the Sambrano v. United Airlines case, to private employers dealing with Title VII claims to religious objections.

Finally, so far as vaccination mandates go, some miscellaneous cases.

Also included are some cases about mask mandates.

First, a link to a short-term calendar on vaccination mandate cases brought by anti-mandate States:

The defendants deadline to appeal the preliminary injunction expired on March 1, 2022. Thus, there will be no appeal of the preliminary injunction, and the case remains in this Court. Defendants answer to the complaint is due no later than March 16, 2022. Dkt. No. 44. Given that the Court received extensive briefing, evidence, and oral argument during the preliminary-injunction proceedings, the Court also orders the parties to file a joint status report no later than March 16, 2022. The parties must inform the Court how they propose to proceed. To the extent the parties disagree, the joint report should explain each sides proposal.
