A federal judge has blocked the White House’s federal vaccine mandate for Head Start teachers, handing a victory to 24 states that were party to the suit. The ruling held that the vaccine mandate cannot force Head Start teachers from being “vaccinated” for Covid-19 by January 31.
The Louisiana judge held that President Biden unlawfully and willfully bypassed Congress, which has ultimate authority to institute laws. The Biden mandates would have compelled Head Start teachers be vaccinated and also that young children 2 years or older be masked when in class or when playing together outdoors.
The Biden administration had issued the mandate to Head Start, which is a federally funded education program for children under the age of 6 with qualifying low-income families. The Trump-appointed Judge Doughty gave his reasoning for blocking Biden’s unlawful federal vaccine mandate, which the president had promised he had no intention of implementing.
