Federal court halts vaccine mandate for federal contractors nationwide

When Auburn University announced its compliance with the federal contractor vaccine mandate in October, we noted that the mandate may be challenged in court and that we would monitor and communicate any developments.

On December 7, 2021, a federal judge issued a nationwide preliminary injunction halting enforcement of the federal contractor and subcontractor vaccine mandate requirements issued by the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force in response to President Biden’s Executive Order 14042, Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors. The mandate requires covered contractor employees to be fully vaccinated by January 18, 2022. On November 30, a federal judge in Kentucky blocked enforcement of the mandate in Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee.

Given this development, Auburn is pausing enforcement of its vaccine policy. We will continue to monitor legal challenges to the most recent court order and communicate any further modifications in response to legal developments.

Vaccination Program Phases

Auburn is currently in Phase 3 of its COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan, expanding inoculations to Auburn University retirees as well as the family members and dependents of university employees. Those age 12 and older who have not yet received a first dose of the vaccine can set an appointment through this scheduler website. If you are a retiree, or an employee and scheduling a vaccine appointment for your child and/or spouse, click on “Community Portal.” A Banner ID is required to schedule the appointment. Once an appointment has been set, Auburn will send a confirmation email to the person requesting the vaccine.
