CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Gov. Chris Sununu says New Hampshire plans to join other states in challenging the Biden administration’s new vaccine mandate in court.

President Joe Biden announced a sweeping vaccine mandate last week that covers more than 100 million Americans, including executive branch employees and workers at businesses with more than 100 people on the payroll.

Sununu said no lawsuits have been drafted yet, but he’s ready to sign on when that happens.

Sununu also announced efforts to bolster the state’s hospital workforce to meet the latest surge in COVID-19 patients.
