SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — The lawyer for two women who challenged New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s order requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for certain workers is appealing a judge’s denial of their request for an injunction blocking the mandate.

Attorney A. Blair Dunn filed a notice of appeal with the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday. That was a day after U.S. District Judge Martha Vazquez upheld Lujan Grisham’s authority to impose a vaccine mandate in a public health order to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Dunn told the Santa Fe New Mexican that he believes his clients may prevail on appeal.
