The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on Nov. 16 suspended implementation and enforcement of its Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) on mandatory COVID vaccination and testing in the workplace.
Under the ETS, employers with more than 100 employees were given until Jan. 4, 2022 to comply with President Biden’s COVID vaccine mandate.
However, a Nov. 12 ruling by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals barred OSHA from enforcing the ETS “pending adequate judicial review” of a motion for permanent injunction.
Children’s Health Defense (CHD) is calling on all scientists, citizens and medical experts to ask OSHA to permanently end the ETS. Submit your comment today via the federal eRulemaking portal.

In its 22-page ruling, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals called the Biden administration’s COVID vaccine mandate “fatally flawed” and said OSHA should “take no steps to implement or enforce the mandate until further court order.”
The court said the mandate fails to consider that the ongoing threat of COVID is more dangerous to some employees than others. These vaccines are experimental and potentially dangerous. According to the latest data released by the CDC, between Dec. 14, 2020, and Nov. 26, 2021, 927,740 reports of adverse events — including 19,532 reports of deaths — following COVID vaccines were submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.
CHD believes it is critical that OSHA submit Environmental Impact Statements to the public on the safety, health and economic impact of its ETS.
