The U.S. federal appeals court has suspended mandatory vaccination for employees of companies with more than 100 employees. This was one of the flagship measures of the Biden administration.
 
This is a difficult setback for Joe Biden. The vaccination obligation for employees of companies with more than 100 employees, recently put in place by the administration of the American president, has been suspended on Saturday, November 6 by the federal court of appeal of Texas. In its decision, the court considers that the plaintiffs have “made arguments suggesting that there are serious constitutional and procedural problems” with the government text. The latter is therefore put on hold, pending a review by the court on the merits.

The conservative governor of this southern state, which has already banned mandatory vaccinations on its soil, welcomed this position on Twitter. “We will be able to challenge Biden’s unconstitutional abuse of power in court,” Greg Abbott said in response.
 
The decree requires tens of millions of employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19 by January 4, or face very regular testing. Adopted this week by the executive branch, it leaves it up to the employer to take whatever action it deems appropriate, including disciplinary action, against those who fail to take the vaccine and undergo regular testing. In addition, companies that fail to enforce the new requirement face a fine ranging from $13,000 to $136,000.

In any case, this measure had been very badly accepted by the Republicans, who denounced a “dictatorship”. In general, the Biden administration is struggling to convince the American population to become immune to Covid-19. According to the website Ourworldindata, only 57% of the country’s inhabitants have completed their vaccination schedule.
