The Supreme Court of the United States voted 6-3 on Thursday to block enforcement of a vaccine mandate on large businesses by the Biden administration.

The order, which came from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), was deemed to be too broad in its scope, and would have required businesses with 100 or more employees to show proof of vaccination in the workplace.

More than two dozen Republican led states sued the Biden administration over the mandate.

The high court also ruled that a second order from Biden, which requires vaccines for healthcare workers, will be allowed to stand.

This is a developing story.
