U.S. Supreme Court Upholds Vaccine Mandate For Health Care Workers

January 13, 2022

AHCA/NCAL expressed concern that the repercussions of the federal vaccine mandate for health care workers would further devastate an already decimated workforce and asked that CMS and state surveyors consider regular testing options for unvaccinated staff to prevent worsening staff shortages. 

When we are in the midst of another COVID surge, caregivers in vaccine hesitant communities may walk off the job because of this policy, further threatening access to care for thousands of our nation’s seniors.
