Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt has appeared before our nation’s high court Friday to argue against the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate for health care workers.
The mandate requires employees at facilities that participate in Medicare and Medicaid be vaccinated against COVID-19, but the mandate was put on hold by federal courts in Missouri and Louisiana.
Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar has written the mandate is necessary to prevent deaths and serious illnesses from COVID-19.
The case heard by the U.S. Supreme Court is “Missouri vs. Biden.”
Schmitt describes it as one of the most important cases in Supreme Court history.
