U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Challenge to Maine COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

This is the second time the court has ruled in this manner

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) turned away a challenge to Maine's COVID-19 vaccine mandate for healthcare workers, rebuffing for the second time a group of plaintiffs who sought a religious exemption.

The justices rejected a request made on behalf of unnamed plaintiffs identifying themselves as Maine healthcare workers who objected to the vaccinations on religious grounds. The court in November rejected an emergency request by the same plaintiffs seeking to prevent Maine from enforcing the mandate against them. They are represented by a Christian legal advocacy group.

The court previously rejected other challenges to vaccine mandates including one focusing upon New York's lack of religious exemptions for healthcare workers.
