NY health care workers soon required to get COVID booster shot

After a federal judge threw out a lawsuit from Texas on Wednesday, the federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate for health care workers is now enforceable in all 50 states.

In mid-December, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas issued a preliminary injunction blocking the mandate until the lawsuit is heard on the merits.

The vaccine mandate from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) was put on hold in 25 states, including Texas, but it was remained in effect in another 25 states, according to the preliminary injunction.

On January 14, the Biden administration filed an appeal against the injunction.

After the US Supreme Court lifted injunctions blocking the CMS vaccine mandate on Jan. 13, Texas moved to dismiss the case on Tuesday. The CMS can now enforce its mandate across the United States, thanks to the dismissal of the case by a Texas district judge on Wednesday. Texas v. Becerra, N.D. Tex., No. 2:21-cv-00229, is the case.

Many Republican-led states contested the CMS mandate when it first went into effect on Nov. 5, 2021, and several federal judges temporarily delayed the demand later that month.

According to the federal government, the CMS mandate requires full immunization against COVID-19 for 10.4 million workers at Medicare and Medicaid-certified facilities across the country—down from the previous estimate of almost 17 million workers. There are medical and religious exemptions, but there are none for persons who have established natural immunity as a result of having had COVID-19 in the past. There is also no option for testing on a weekly basis.

Medical facilities in 24 states that were newly affected by the Supreme Court decision had until March 15 to be properly vaccinated against COVID-19, according to the CMS.

Meanwhile, health-care employees in federal institutions in 25 other states who are not parties to the Supreme Court cases have until January 27 to receive the first dose, and February 28 to receive the second.

Texas was not affected at the time, according to the CMS, due to pending litigation. New deadlines for Texas health-care workers have yet to be announced by the government.

Now, as the mandate looms, nurses like Rebecca Sarwi are in a position to decide what’s next for their careers. 

“You know, getting the vaccine is not an option for me,” she said.

She isn’t quiet about her stance on the vaccine mandate for health care workers.

Sarwi has been a nurse at Halifax Health for 13 years and she’s unvaccinated with no plans for that to change.

“Where’s the line and where’s that goal post?” she asked. “I feel like it’s going to keep moving.” 

According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, exemptions for the vaccine are available to employees with a disability, a sincerely held religious belief, observance, or practice, and for medical reasons.

Sarwi’s previous attempt at applying for a religious exemption was denied. 

“And even if we get an exemption, which would be great, and be able to keep our jobs, what are they going to ask of us at that point too?” she said.

Sarwi said she has since spoken with the hospital and will be submitting another waiver form, but the idea of it not being accepted is a possibility she has to consider.

“We’ll try to resubmit it, but I feel like after that, I mean that’s it,” she said. “I gave more information than I need to.”

In the hospital, Sarwi works in the labor and delivery department.

If her time as a nurse at Halifax Health comes to end, she plans on spending more time on her side business as a lactation consultant.

“I think there’s only so much that people are willing to compromise,” she said.

Officials with Halifax Health have reported that more than 75% of the hospital’s staff members have been vaccinated.

So far, there hasn’t been any new memo sent out on the mandate as they continue to follow CMS guidelines.

It looks like a communist administration because it is one; Why is society paralyzed? Find your courage in the word, Matthew 5:44 says: “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” Satan is building his own army just like God. In Matthew chapter 10, Jesus tells his apostles they have been given power over unclean spirits, and sends them out to spread the word. We hold power over unclean spirits and our prayer can move mountains.

No one man can make sense of this elaborate illusion cast over the common man of society, but collectively we can point out each limitation forced upon us and bring it forward as an injustice to the public. In Matthew 10:34 Jesus says: “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.” We’re meant to go down preaching the gospel and guiding others to salvation. This could be considered the bravest task a man or woman of faith could undertake, but make no mistake it will bear fruit in the kingdom of heaven. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.

Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole has spoken out against Quebec’s intention to tax residents who refuse the COVID-19 vaccine, and other Conservative lawmakers have also spoken out against the contentious measure.

During a Facebook Live event on Jan. 13, O’Toole expressed his opposition to Quebec Premier François Legault’s idea, calling it unjust and predicted that it will not persuade vaccine-skeptical Quebecers to roll up their sleeves.

He also claimed that Quebec’s idea is incompatible with Canada’s health-care policy, and that it’s simple to “turn a frustrated 85 percent of the population against 10 or 15 other percent of the population,” referring to those who are vaccinated and those who refuse to get the shot.”

who refuse to be vaccinated Legault announced earlier this week that unvaccinated adults without a medical exemption will face a “significant” financial penalty. On Jan. 13, he announced that a measure will be filed in the province’s National Assembly early in February, allowing all political parties to “vote for or against and propose adjustments, if necessary.” Official statistics show that 85 percent of Quebecers have gotten at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, Manitoba Premier Heather Stefanson, and Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe all ruled out a similar punishment for unvaccinated people of their jurisdictions earlier this week. Dr. Kieran Moore, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, has stated that he will not recommend a comparable “punitive” fee on the unvaccinated. On Twitter, a number of Conservative MPs slammed Legault’s idea.

“Any tax targeting unvaccinated people is discriminatory and wrong. Period.” Pierre Poilievre, a member of the Carleton legislature, wrote in a letter.

Melissa Lantsman, a member of Parliament from Thornhill, described the proposal as “legally and ethically wrong.”

“The scapegoating of the “unvaccinated” is becoming increasingly common. “This tax will do nothing to keep anyone safe,” said Michael Cooper, MP for St. Albert-Edmonton.

Quebec’s plan has also been opposed by a number of civil liberties and constitutional rights organizations.

In a statement released on Jan. 12, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) stated that the planned tax on the unvaccinated “raises significant equity concerns.”

“We know that some of those who remain unvaccinated are individuals who face serious barriers to accessing health care, and many have a low level of trust in the system because of negative experiences in the past,” said Cara Zwibel, the CCLA’s acting general counsel.

“This is a divisive measure that will end up punishing and alienating those who may be most in need of public health supports and services.”

Mark Strahl, a Conservative MP, praised the CCLA for condemning the “shameful policy,” saying that Canada’s charter “recognizes human liberty over our bodies and medical decisions.”

The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms said on Jan. 13 that it will sue Quebec over the “planned health tax,” which it claims violates the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

“The proposed Quebec ‘health tax’ is an outrageous breach of Quebecers’ Charter rights and an affront to the equality for which Canada was once recognized,” says John Carpay, president of the Justice Centre.

On January 12, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated that he would need more information about Quebec’s plan before deciding whether or not to endorse it. The next day, he stated that the province has indicated that the plan will adhere to the objectives of the Canada Health Act, which ensures that all Canadians have access to health care.

This news comes just after the U.S. government warned its citizens to avoid traveling north of the border due to Canada’s rising cases on Jan 11th. To me it just looks like these politicians are trying to keep the public from knowing that there is a particular emptiness around the world that these tyrannical politicians created. Do YOU want to take a trip to Rome or Paris during this plandemic? “While evidence shows that Omicron causes much less severe illnesses due to significantly lower lung infections, the variant’s high transmissibility is driving up cases across Canada.” Said Andrew Chen, with the Epoch Times. With that being said, why are we locking down? Why? Herd immunity is the most basic solution to the problem and Canada is locking down for a highly transmissible yet less virulent variant? Sure, it’s not about government overreach. It’s all in the name of public safety. They’re creating skeptics, and solidifying our perceptions. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
