Gov. Abbott Issues Executive Order Banning Covid Vaccine Mandates


AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott Monday issued an executive order stating that no entity in Texas can compel receipt of a COVID-19 vaccination by any individual, including an employee or 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. Governor Abbott also sent a message to the the Chief Clerk of the House and Secretary of the Senate adding this issue as an item to the Third Special Session agenda. The executive order will be rescinded upon the passage of such legislation. 

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

Ivermectin won't kill you like the contents of the "Jab" is going to a couple of years down the road........

There is no evidence of this at all, you spread misinformation on purpose. The science behind the vaccines has been around since the 80's.

And ivermectin CAN kill you,

BILLIONS of people have taken the vaccines with no issues what so ever.

That's great news!! Butthurt Libturds continue to cry(:(:(:


Yup we are all so so sad that you people continue to prove that you do not care about your fellow Americans and will in fact leave them to die if you think it is politically advantageous for your "party".

As if it’s by choice! If not for the draconian mandates it wouldn’t be necessary for Abbott to do what he’s doing ;)

"The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus" -GREGG ABBOTT

You appear to be triggered Me someone. Why don't you spew more hate I know you feel better talking bad about other people. You do it daily

I am correcting you people who seem to make it a job to misinform.

Republicans constantly prove the only thing they and their party cares about is "OwNiNg ThE LiBs", you don't even have a platform.

Oh this isn't the link you wanted but here's one talking about waning efficiency in just 4 months!! They even comment about how becoming infected and gaining those antibodies is better than two rounds of the fake stuff. There's actually several studies RN saying the same thing. One even produced by Pfizer

I don't disagree with this, and I never have, only the part where you said it was all of the vaccines. It is noted that the effectiveness to keep people out of the hospital and not die is still above 90%. 

Also, in another post you said it was all of the vaccines, now you admit you were lying and it was only the one?

You have proven yourself wrong, while trying to prove me wrong, hilarious.

I do not agree that natural antibodies are better than the vaccine.

“It is noted that the effectiveness to keep people out of the hospital and not die is still above 90%.”

Can people that receive the vaccine contract Covid? Yes. So, the narrative seems to have changed from the original “if everyone gets the vaccine, everything will be back to normal” to “If you get vaccinated, you have a 90% chance of not being hospitalized.” So, if the objective has changed to trying to just stay out of the hospital, why are you so concerned with people that chose not to get the vaccine? Explain, in what way it is harming you or anyone else that is vaccinated, Especially when you agree that natural antibodies are better than the vaccine?

Biden can order an employer to vaccinate, and that is government overreach.  But when Abbbott orders and employer not to require vaccination that is just fine.  What hypocrisy!

What a completely dysfunctional society we have become.

And some humans think we can save ourselves from all of this. We cannot. Neither can any person nor the facade of the two party political system.
