The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) allows employers to require employees to have COVID-19 vaccines.

Houston Methodist Hospital made headlines in June when the court upheld their termination of employees who did not comply with the vaccination mandate. The plaintiffs argued the hospital was violating public policy since the vaccines were distributed under Emergency Use Authorization rather than following the Food and Drug Administration’s usual processes. Federal Judge Lynn Hughes dismissed the case stating it was the hospital’s judgment to provide a safer environment for their employees and patients. Hughes also stated employees have a choice to work elsewhere.
