Can the USA Government Force You to Get a Coronavirus Vaccine?
5-26-20, Newsweek -- Experts report that state and federal governments can't force citizens to receive the Covid virus vaccine against their will, but lawmakers may be able to create a mandate that imposes consequences for not being vaccinated. Many experts champion high rates of immunity in a population as a solution to stopping the virus from spreading. A recent Reuters poll found about a quarter of the American public will refuse the Covid vaccine and the federal government may have a tough time creating a requirement that people be inoculated. However, constitutional law experts say it's possible Congress could have the power to mandate a vaccine under the commerce clause since the virus travels across state borders. The question is whether that power actually includes the power to require vaccines and Steven Wilker, a partner at the law firm Tonkon Torp, told Newsweek that it would likely be a "reach." If the federal government did want to pursue mandating vaccines, the more realistic scenario is to tie it to federal funding or tax individuals who refuse to vaccinate...
The federal government could also leave the decision up to states. In the 1905 case, Jacobson v. Massachusetts, a citizen argued forced smallpox inoculations infringed on his personal liberty. The Supreme Court upheld the Cambridge Board of Health's authority to require the vaccination under the 10th Amendment that grants state police powers. As it's still a "perfectly good law," Laurence Tribe, a Carl M. Loeb University Professor at Harvard Law School told Newsweek. The answer to whether states could mandate vaccinations, he said, was a "clear yes." Sylvia Law, a law professor at New York University, called it "easy" for states to require vaccinations and pointed out that they've already done so in a number of contents. Students are often required to be vaccinated to attend school and in the case of COVID-19, she said. "I think they have a reasonable basis for doing so."
