Hospital Workers Rejected at Supreme Court on Vaccine Mandate

  • Massachusetts hospital workers asked court for emergency stay
  • Justices so far haven’t intervened against vaccine mandates

A U.S. Supreme Court justice turned away a request from eight Mass General Brigham Inc. workers for a religious exemption from the Massachusetts hospital system’s requirement that they be vaccinated against Covid-19.

Justice Stephen Breyer rejected the request without requesting a response from the hospital or referring the matter to the full, nine-member court. Breyer, who is assigned to handle emergency matters from Massachusetts, gave no explanation.
