Ruling Against NY Vaccine Mandate for Health Care Workers is Right Decision

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Reacting to the recent victory for health care workers in New York, Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) releases the following statement from Twila Brase, CCHF’s president and co-founder: 

“The tide is turning away from Covid mandates. New York State Supreme Court Judge Gerard Neri’s Jan. 13 ruling to strike down a statewide mandate for medical staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19 is a win for facts and individual freedom. Pfizer has already admitted the vaccine does not stop transmission and it’s clear the Covid shot does not stop anyone from contracting COVID-19. The judge’s ruling underscores these facts. 

“People lost their jobs under the mandate and many were forced to participate in a medical experiment against their wishes. According to the CDC’s own Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting Systems, some experienced heart damage and neurological harms. Some died. We are pleased that Judge Neri declared the statewide COVID-19 vaccine mandate for medical staff ‘null, void, and of no effect’ and ‘arbitrary and capricious.’ As injuries pile up among the vaccinated, health care workers in New York, who were deprived of their livelihoods for more than a year, can breathe a sigh of relief.  

“The vaccine mandate was wrong from the beginning. Judge Neri’s ruling is a victory for health freedom, bodily autonomy, and the right of every individual to make their own informed medical decisions without coercion. In a time of unprecedented health care worker shortages, lawmakers and governors can take similar actions, just as Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida has done with his protective proposal to permanently ban Covid mandates in the state of Florida.”
