Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Texas Gov. Abbott issued an executive order banning private companies from mandating COVID-19 vaccines”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

In an executive order on Monday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott banned any entity, including private businesses, from issuing COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

"No entity in Texas can compel receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine by any individual, including an employee or a consumer, who objects to such vaccination for any reason of personal conscience, based on a religious belief, or for medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19," Abbott said in the order.

Abbott has also called on the Texas legislature to also pass a law banning COVID-19 vaccine mandates. 

In a statement, Abbott, who has been vaccinated, said the vaccines are safe and encouraged those who are eligible to get them but said they should be voluntary. 

The Texas Tribune reported that a previous executive order had already banned government agencies, cities, counties, and school districts from imposing COVID-19 vaccine requirements.
