Federal Judge Blocks Vaccine Mandate For Health Care Workers In NY

Utica, N.Y. - A federal judge has temporarily blocked the state of New York from forcing medical workers to be vaccinated after a group of health care workers sued.

Judge David Hurd in Utica issued the order after 17 health professionals, including doctors and nurses, claimed the vaccine mandate violated their rights because it disallows religious exemptions.

The judge gave New York state until Sept. 22 to respond to the lawsuit in federal court in Utica.
