The Biden Administration has implemented a rule requiring the COVID-19 vaccine for all workers in healthcare settings that receive Medicare and Medicaid funding. This has led to many leaving the industry across Kentucky. In response, Attorney General Daniel Cameron has joined a multi-state lawsuit against the Administration, stating that this mandate is unconstitutional and the agency responsible does not have this authority. Cameron said, “Our healthcare workers have selflessly cared for their fellow Kentuckians during this pandemic, and now they are at risk of losing their jobs because of the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate.” This mandate not only violates individual liberty, but it will do more harm than good if healthcare workers across our Commonwealth quit their jobs.
