Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the federal agency responsible for administering the government healthcare programs, has issued a memo suspending their enforcement of Joe Biden’s costly and controversial vaccine mandate.
The memorandum, posted to social media by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt explains that CMS “will not enforce the new rule regarding vaccination of health care workers or requirements for policies and procedures” due to “court-ordered injunctions in place prohibiting enforcement of this provision.”
The memo cites separate decisions from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, and the United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, which have both issued injunctions against Joe Biden’s mandate, effectively stopping it before it can begin.
“CMS has appealed both of these decisions, and has filed motions for stays of these orders,” the federal agency added. The stays will also prevent CMS from surveying healthcare providers to determine whether they have been vaccinated.
“CMS recently issued a memo suspending enforcement of their vaccine mandate on health care workers,” wrote Schmitt, who said the victory came “following our win in court halting the mandate on Monday.”
