An influence of a classical magnetic field on the vacuum of the quantized charged spinor matter field confined between two parallel material plates is studied. In the case of the uniform magnetic field transverse to the plates, the Casimir effect is shown to be repulsive, independently of a choice of boundary conditions and of a distance between the plates.
