A judge in the Montreal-Quebec Superior Court ruled in favor of mandating vaccines for state health workers almost two weeks after the government suspended health orders.
Judge Michel Yergeau’s decision announced today denies the request for an injunction by employees of unvaccinated medical networks.
The Quebec government announced on November 3 that it would abandon the vaccination deadline for medical staff on November 15, fearing a significant reduction in services in overloaded systems.
Instead, unvaccinated staff had to be tested three times a week and new employees fully vaccinated.
The judge said the applicant could not prove that the order did not benefit the public and that it should come into effect without agreement.
Proceedings regarding the benefits of a compulsory vaccination order being constitutional will not be heard until sometime in 2022.
