Dana and Dana Partner and NBC10 Legal Analyst Mark Dana weighed in on the Supreme Court’s vaccination decision this week. The Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration’s vaccine-or-test rule which would have impacted 84 million employees in the private sector.
“OSHA is involved in workplace safety — and that’s what the court said,” said NBC 10 legal analyst Mark Dana. “It is not in the business of doing broad-based health policies that effect millions and millions of people.”
However, the court did uphold a regulations mandating vaccines for Medicare and Medicaid providers. The two largest hospital groups in Rhode Island had already reported compliance or “near compliance” before the Supreme Court’s decision.
