COVID-19 Summary: In this case, several states sued to block the federal vaccine mandate which required Medicare- and Medicaid-certified providers and suppliers to become vaccinated prior to December 6, 2021. The judge granted the preliminary injunction on December 7, 2021, which enjoined the defendants from implementing the vaccination requirements for covered contracts in any state or territory of the United States.
