AUSTIN, Texas (KOSA) - Governor Greg Abbott has issued an executive order that prohibits vaccine mandates by any entity in Texas.

The order states that entities cannot compel receipt of a COVID-19 vaccination by employees or consumers who object for religious or medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19.

“The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus, but should remain voluntary and never forced,” said Governor Abbott in a release.
