MSSNY Calls SCOTUS Ruling on Vaccination Requirement for Health Care Workers
“An Important Win for Our Collective Public Health”


Statement Attributable to:
Joseph R. Sellers, MD, FAAP, FACP
President, Medical Society of the State of New York 

“The Medical Society of the State of New York has strongly supported the requirement for all health care workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19.  It is an important win for our collective public health that the U.S. Supreme Court has denied a request to block New York’s vaccination mandate for health care workers that does not include an exception for religious objectors.

“We are confident that the Supreme Court ruling signifies another step toward bringing this pandemic to an end. We once again encourage every eligible New Yorker to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19.”
