The Biden Administration has announced that it will be ending most federally mandated COVID-19 vaccination mandates on Thursday, May 11, 2023. Included in the Administration’s vaccine-mandate rollback is the Administration’s much-maligned mandate for federal contractors, which has been subject to challenges in federal court. You can read the official announcement here.
However, the notable exception to the May 11, 2023 roll-back date is the federal vaccination mandate for healthcare workers. You may recall that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) implemented a vaccine mandate for healthcare workers. While the Administration has announced that it intends to rescind this mandate, such rescission will not take place on May 11, 2023, but instead at some other indeterminate point in the future. (This is due to a procedural quirk in the law, the details of which we’ll spare you!) Until then, however, CMS’s mandate will be technically in full force and effect.
MNK Law will continue to monitor developments with respect to the CMS’s vaccine mandate for healthcare workers. For more information on the rescission of federal COVID-19 vaccination mandates, please contact us at email@example.com.
