Abbott Order: No Employer Can Compel COVID Vax

“ Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced late Monday afternoon an executive order prohibiting compulsory COVID-19 requirements on employees. He called on the Texas Legislature to pass legislation doing the same thing.

The action comes just four days after grassroots activists and the Republican Party of Texas urged the governor to make it a priority.

“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,” wrote Abbott in his order.”
