Gov Stitt, AG O'Connor praise injunction for healthcare worker vax mandate

Attorney General O'Connor Applauds Nationwide Vaccine Mandate Injunction

OKLAHOMA CITY - In a major victory for our healthcare heroes, a federal court granted the State of Oklahoma's request to stop the Biden Administration’s attempt to force COVID-19 vaccines on healthcare workers nationwide. 

“This is a major win for the medical freedom of Oklahoma’s healthcare heroes who have fearlessly braved the pandemic to keep the rest of us healthy,” said Oklahoma Attorney General John O’Connor.

On November 15, Attorney General O’Connor and 11 other state attorneys general filed a lawsuit asking a federal court to stop the Biden administration’s overreaching “job or jab” COVID-19 vaccine mandate for healthcare workers.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) exceeded its statutory authority, the Court included. CMS also violated multiple federal laws, the Spending Clause, the Anti-Commandeering Doctrine, and the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, according to the Courts.


OKLAHOMA CITY (Nov. 30, 2021) – Governor Kevin Stitt released the following statement after a U.S. District Court granted a nationwide injunction against the Biden Administration and prevented the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services from requiring healthcare workers to receive the COVID-19 vaccine:

“I am pleased that federal courts have blocked yet another one of President Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandates.

“I stand with Attorney General John O’Connor and the Legislature as we fight back to defend our individual liberties and want Oklahomans to know we will continue standing up to the Biden Administration’s excessive federal overreach.”
