The states, all of which have Republican governors, find mandatory vaccination against the Constitution and also the federal procurement law. These are Arkansas, Alaska, Missouri, Iowa, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. Texas and Florida are taking the government to court over the mandatory corona jab.
‘Abuse of power’
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds called the move “abuse of power” and damaging to the economy in a video posted on Twitter. “It will only exacerbate the staff shortages and supply chain problems that are hampering our economic recovery, and it promotes unprecedented government interference in our lives,” said Reynolds.
Biden previously called the vaccination requirement necessary to fight the pandemic. From December 8, all contractors and their staff must be vaccinated to work for the federal government. Washington has indicated that it is not a hard deadline, and that contractors will be given room to meet the requirements. At the beginning of September, Biden announced a vaccination obligation for federal government employees and healthcare personnel, which will take effect on November 22.
American universities, cities and employers, among others, have implemented their own vaccination rules to prevent infections with Covid-19. Lawsuits to reverse it have so far been dismissed in most cases.
