OSHA withdrawing federal vaccine mandate

January 26, 2022

The agency is prioritizing its resources to focus on finalizing a permanent COVID-19 Healthcare Standard.

The U.S. federal government officially withdrawing the COVID-19 federal vaccine mandate for companies with 100 or more employees.
  • OSHA – Occupational Safety and Health Administration in the U.S. Dept. of Labor – announced this move on January 25.
  • The Supreme Court recently blocked the federal government from enforcing this rule that was set to go into effect earlier this month.
  • Why It Matters: The federal government will no longer pursue this *particular* vaccine requirement but could set certain safety standards required of workplaces (such as better ventilation).
