State officials doubled down on their quest to reinstate a novel coronavirus vaccine mandate for health care workers despite the fact that it’s not as necessary as it once was and appears to have no sound legal foundation.

New York authorities said they would appeal the decision striking down this rule, which led to the temporary block.
