High court blocks vaccine mandate at major workplaces, allows it at health-care sites that get federal money; nursing homes worry






By Melissa Patrick
Kentucky Health NewsThe U.S. Supreme Court has blocked enforcement of President Biden's requirement that workers for larger employers get vaccinated against Covid-19 or submit to weekly testing, but it also ruled that a vaccine requirement for health-care workers in facilities receiving federal money could proceed. The court ruled 5-4 that vaccination in facilities getting Medicare and Medicaid funding could be required, stating the secretary of Health and Human Services had not exceeded his statutory authority in doing so. 
Betsy Johnson, president of Kentucky Association of Health Care Facilities, the main long-term-care lobby, said she was not surprised by the ruling, but voiced concern that it will worsen an already fragile workforce situation.  "Although our association fully supports employer Covid-19 vaccine mandates and encourages all our long-term care workers to get vaccinated against Covid-19, we believe this governmental mandate will further exacerbate the workforce issues that skilled nursing facilities are experiencing in Kentucky," Johnson said.
"A little over 15 percent of our skilled nursing facility workforce has declined to take the vaccine and only 23% of our workforce has currently received the booster. Although we have made great strides in our staff vaccination rates, we believe that we will lose staff to non-health-care employers that are not subject to a government Covid-19 vaccine mandate."
