A federal appeals court has temporarily halted the Biden administration's Covid-19 vaccine mandate for companies with 100 or more employees.
More than half of the U.S. states and other petitioners have filed lawsuits challenging the mandate as unconstitutional.
The judge in the case ruled that there is "cause to believe there are grave statutory and constitutional issues with the Mandate."
The CDC and FDA say the Covid-19 vaccines are safe and effective for all populations they are approved for.
However, some people who get the vaccines have serious and, sometime, fatal side effects.
In addition, scientists say, the vaccines are wearing off after several months. CDC announced months ago that data showed fully-vaccinated people are often getting and spreading Covid. It is not rare for vaccinated people to end up hospitalized with Covid and, sometimes even die.
Public health officials are recommending the vaccines for children as young as age 5, saying they are safe and effective. However, there is no long-term data on safety of effectiveness of the vaccine.
One major issue some scientists have with the Biden mandate is that it ignores the great body of scientific evidence that finds natural immunity in the millions who have had Covid-19 significantly outperforms the vaccines.
CDC has kept its estimate of how many Americans have had Covid-19 secret since May 28, and has not responded to a Freedom of Information request for the information, which belongs to the public.
