Federal judge blocks Biden’s vaccine mandate

Ga. (KYMA, KECY) - President Biden's vaccine requirement for federal contractors has been blocked by a federal judge in Georgia.

It means that all three major Biden vaccine policies for people not employed by the federal government are frozen across the country.

That includes contractors, certain health care workers and employees of larger companies.

U.S. District Judge Stan Baker said in his preliminary order Tuesday that blocking the federal contractor policy would “essentially, do nothing more than maintain the status quo."

The mandate had already been blocked in Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee after an order was issued in a separate case.

The case was initially brought by seven states, led by Georgia.
