Texas Governor Greg Abbott bans all COVID-19 vaccine mandates – even for private employers – Houston Public Media
Governor Greg Abbott will chair a round table discussion on public safety priorities at the Texas Department of Public Safety Headquarters in January 2021.
COVID-19 vaccine requirements from government agencies, cities, counties and school districts were already banned by a previous regulation – currently being challenged in court by the San Antonio Independent School District. Legislators have also already enacted a ban on so-called vaccination passports – which would enable companies to request proof of vaccination in order to receive a service. However, by that time Texas had allowed private companies to require vaccines from their own employees.
