Rep. Kat Cammack joined Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC-03) and over 60 Republicans (Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks included) in challenging the Biden Administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate on federal healthcare workers in H.R. 497, the Freedom for Health Care Workers Act.

“As the wife to a first responder, firefighter, and SWAT medic, I know firsthand how our healthcare workers dedicate their lives to keeping our communities healthy and safe,” said Rep. Cammack. “Enforcing burdensome federal regulations does nothing to improve the quality of patient care and stands in the way of those simply trying to perform their essential duties. I’m grateful to Congressman Duncan and my colleagues for making the important stand against unnecessary and ineffective mandates for our healthcare heroes.”

“No American should ever be forced to choose between the COVID shot or losing their livelihood,” said Rep. Duncan. “I led the fight against Joe Biden’s authoritarian COVID shot mandate on our healthcare workers in the last Congress and will continue leading the charge until this requirement is lifted. Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate is unscientific, un-American, and deeply damaging to healthcare workers as we already face a nationwide staff shortage.”
