A measure was created by the Biden government to expand immunization in the country

A US court has temporarily halted President Joe Biden’s plans to make a COVID-19 vaccine mandatory for tens of millions of American workers.

The law proposed by the US government, which will take effect in early January, would require employees of private companies with more than 100 employees to be fully vaccinated or tested for the disease weekly.

But the court found that there were “serious constitutional and legal problems” with the rule. The Biden government has until Monday (8/11) to appeal.

Five Republican-led states — Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Utah — as well as private companies and religious groups have sued the law.
