Judge blocks medical worker vaccine mandate in NY state

UTICA, N.Y. (AP) — A federal judge temporarily blocked the state of New York on Tuesday from forcing medical workers to be vaccinated after a group of health care workers sued, saying their Constitutional rights were violated because the state's mandate disallowed religious exemptions.

Maybe their religion means they don’t belong in healthcare. Isn’t doing no harm the core of providing health care?

Temporarily blocked, and only for religious exemptions. The state has until 9/​22 to respond.

I hope all of these people firmly believe in their medical exemptions, and that they end up right in hell for prolonging this pandemic. They'll have earned it.

The mandate will survive in the end, only delaying the inevitable.

I get it sucks for the folks upstate, but a test out option is really a non-starter.
