The obligation to vaccine against the Covid for the healthcare personnel blocked by a judge. It happens, after the appeal of 17 doctors and nurses, in the state of New York: the ordinance, which had been signed by former governor Andrew Cuomo, is thus suspended until 22 September. Here’s what’s going on.

In the summer, the then governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, had signed an ordinance which ordered the mandatory vaccine for all health personnel. Doctors, nurses and social health workers were expected to receive at least one dose of the vaccine by 27 September, with limited exceptions for religious and medical reasons.
Seventeen people, including doctors and nurses, convinced that the vaccination obligation violates their constitutional rights, had however filed a legal action against that decision. The appeal was upheld by Judge David Hurd, who temporarily blocked the vaccine requirement for the health professions, allowing one week (until 22 September) to respond to the plaintiffs’ lawsuit.
