A US Federal judge has ordered a nationwide halt of forced vaccination of healthcare workers, until the lawsuit filed by Louisiana, Montana, Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio is decided.

This follows a November 29, 2021 injunction, in conjunction with a lawsuit filed by Missouri, Nebraska, Arkansas, Kansas, Iowa, Wyoming, Alaska, South Dakota, North Dakota, and New Hampshire. The Biden CMS mandate impacts healthcare providers who serve the elderly (Medicare) and the poor (Medicaid).

Remember that the Covid-19 vaccines are unapproved, have known serious side-effects, as well as unknown ones. The vaccinated are apparently more likely to be silent carriers. This mandate is illegal on several grounds, including that no Covid-19 vaccine, available within the US, has been fully approved. Rather, the FDA approved one available in Europe (Comirnaty). Health mandates are supposed to be local, based on local conditions.
In September and October in Ireland, 46% of those admitted to ICU (Intensive Care Units) were vaccinated. Over 90% of Ireland is vaccinated. Not only do the Covid vaccines fail to protect against Covid, but vaccinated people are getting serious enough infections to be in Intensive Care: https://www.cso.ie/en/releasesandpublications/br/b-cdc/covid-19deathsandcasesseries36/
Without the injunction, the December 4th mandate would have meant a shortage at the time of year when people are most likely to catch the flu and other upper respiratory conditions. Was killing more seniors the intent? According to the CMS Biden Admin: “The requirements apply to: Ambulatory Surgical Centers, Hospices, Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, Hospitals, Long Term Care facilities, Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities, Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities, Home Health Agencies, Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facilities, Critical Access Hospitals, Clinics (rehabilitation agencies, and public health agencies as providers of outpatient physical therapy and speech-language pathology services), Community Mental Health Centers, Home Infusion Therapy suppliers, Rural Health Clinics/Federally Qualified Health Centers, and End-Stage Renal Disease Facilities.” http://web.archive.org/web/20211127053713/https://www.cms.gov/newsroom/press-releases/biden-harris-administration-issues-emergency-regulation-requiring-covid-19-vaccination-health-care
“MAJOR BREAKING NEWS: Federal Court Halts Biden’s Attack On Healthcare Workers, AG Jeff Landry Claims Another Victory Over Vaccine Mandate
MONROE, LA – In a major win for our healthcare heroes, a federal court has halted the Biden Administration’s attempt to force COVID-19 vaccines on healthcare workers. Judge Terry Doughty just now ruled in favor of Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry’s request for a preliminary injunction against the CMS rule requiring the COVID shot on nearly every full-time employee, part-time employee, volunteer, and contractor working at a wide range of healthcare facilities receiving Medicaid or Medicaid funding.
In granting the injunction, Judge Doughty has issued a nationwide stop to the CMS mandate.
“I applaud Judge Doughty for recognizing that Louisiana is likely to succeed on the merits and for delivering yet another victory for the medical freedom of Americans,” said Attorney General Landry. “While Joe Biden villainizes our healthcare heroes with his ‘jab or job’ edicts, I will continue to stand up to the President’s bully tactics and fight for liberty.”
On November 15, Attorney General Landry led a 14-state coalition filing suit against the Biden Administration for acting without statutory authority, violating the Administrative Procedure Act, violating the Social Security Act, violating the Congressional Review Act, and violating the Constitution by promulgating and implementing Medicare and Medicaid Programs; Omnibus COVID-19 Heath Care Staff Vaccinations, 86 Fed. Reg. 61555 (Nov. 5, 2021).
“While our fight is far from over, I am pleased the Court granted preliminary relief against the President’s unconstitutional and immoral attack on not only our healthcare workers but also the access to healthcare services for our poor and elderly,” concluded Attorney General Landry. “I will see this case through to the end – fighting every step of the way to prevent the federal government from imposing medical tyranny on our citizens and turning last year’s healthcare heroes into this year’s unemployed.” https://archive.vn/fI8Fl

Federal Judge Grants Montana’s Request For Injunction On CMS Vaccine Mandate
HELENA — A U.S. District Court Judge granted Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen’s request for a preliminary injunction against the COVID-19 CMS vaccine mandate, which was set to take effect Monday, December 6, 2021. The vaccine mandate is now stayed in Montana and all other states.
In response, Attorney General Knudsen issued the following statement:
“In the past weeks, I’ve heard from healthcare workers across our state whose jobs were being threatened if they did not comply with President Biden’s overreaching federal mandate,” Attorney General Knudsen said. “With the CMS mandate now blocked in Montana until the case is decided, medical facilities have no reason to threaten their employees if they don’t get the vaccine.”
The judge enjoined and restrained the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, along with their directors, employees, Administrators and Secretaries from implementing the CMS mandate as to all healthcare providers, suppliers, owners, employees, and all others it attempts to cover.
“During a pandemic such as this one, it is even more important to safeguard the separation of powers set forth in our Constitution to avoid erosion of our liberties,” U.S. District Judge Terry A. Doughty wrote in the order. “The liberty interests of the unvaccinated requires nothing less.”
The preliminary injunction will remain in effect pending the final resolution of this case, or until further orders from the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, or the United States Supreme Court.

“Court Halts Biden Administration’s Healthcare Worker Vaccine Mandate Following Lawsuit from Missouri Attorney General
Nov 29, 2021, 11:12 AM by AG Schmitt
ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Today, following a lawsuit from Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, the United States District Court, Eastern District of Missouri, issued a preliminary injunction, halting the Biden Administration from enforcing its vaccine mandate on healthcare workers in the states that joined Missouri’s coalition.
“Earlier today, the United States District Court, Eastern District of Missouri, issued a preliminary injunction halting the Biden Administration from enforcing its vaccine mandate on healthcare workers. This is a huge victory for healthcare workers in Missouri and across the country, including rural hospitals who were facing near certain collapse due to this mandate,” said Attorney General Schmitt. “While today’s ruling is a victory, there’s more work to be done, and I will keep fighting to push back on this unprecedented federal overreach.”
On November 10, 2021, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt led a coalition of 10 states in filing a lawsuit to halt the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ vaccine mandate on healthcare workers, the first states to file suit.
Earlier today, the Court issued a preliminary injunction enjoining the Biden Administration from enforcing the vaccine mandate on healthcare workers in any of the plaintiff states, arguing that CMS did not have the authority to issue the mandate.

The Missouri Attorney General’s Office has also filed suit to halt OSHA’s vaccine mandate on private employers and the vaccine mandate on federal contractors, both of which are awaiting court rulings.” https://ago.mo.gov/home/news/2021/11/29/court-halts-biden-administration-s-healthcare-worker-vaccine-mandate-following-lawsuit-from-missouri-attorney-general
“Biden Attempts To Turn Last Year’s Healthcare Heroes Into This Year’s Unemployed, Attorney General Jeff Landry Fights Back
Louisiana Leads Lawsuit Challenging Federal Government’s COVID Vaccine Mandate for Healthcare Workers
BATON ROUGE, LA – Fighting for the medical freedom of Louisiana’s healthcare workers, Attorney General Jeff Landry has filed a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ rule mandating COVID vaccines on nearly every full-time employee, part-time employee, volunteer, and contractor working at a wide range of healthcare facilities receiving Medicaid or Medicaid funding.
“Biden’s bureaucrats at CMS are threatening the jobs of millions of our healthcare heroes who risked their lives last year caring for our neighbors with COVID-19. What’s more: the mandate once again gives more rights and protections to illegal aliens than American citizens,” said Attorney General Landry. “The federal government will not impose medical tyranny on Louisiana’s people without my best fight.”
Attorney General Landry points out that this unconstitutional mandate will upend the state budget, putting billions of dollars at risk. Perhaps even more devastating is the healthcare shortages it will create, affecting the most vulnerable of the State’s citizens.
“The Biden Administration enacted their latest unlawful overreach despite acknowledging that there are endemic staff shortages for almost all categories of employees at almost all kinds of health care providers and suppliers,” added Attorney General Landry. “By disregarding not only the law but also the shortages, Biden is jeopardizing the healthcare interests of countless Americans.”
Attorney General Landry has taken previous legal action to prevent the government from standing between individuals and their doctors. He previously filed lawsuits to halt the illegal edicts mandating vaccines upon federal contractors and private employers.
“Biden seems to forget that coercion is not consent,” concluded Attorney General Landry. “But I will remind him in court as early and as often as it takes that the rule of law cannot be broken, even by the biggest of bullies.”
Joining Louisiana in this lawsuit is Montana, Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, and West Virginia”.
NB: While recognizing that the Covid-19 “vaccines” are not vaccines in the traditional sense of the word, we believe that the word vaccine is more understandable for the general public. We had never heard of “jab” until recently. Better than “jab” would be the more accurate word injection, or the more traditional “shots”.
