Texas Gov. Abbott Signs Executive Order Banning Vaccine Passports

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced today that he has issued an executive order prohibiting state agencies or publically funded organizations in the Lone Star State from creating “vaccine passport” requirements.

The order prohibits organizations that receive public funds from requiring consumers to provide documentation of vaccine status in order to receive any service or enter any place.

“Everyday, Texans are returning to normal life as more people get the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. But, as I’ve said all along, these vaccines are always voluntary and never forced,” said Governor Abbott in a press release.

“Government should not require any Texan to show proof of vaccination and reveal private health information just to go about their daily lives. That is why I have issued an Executive Order that prohibits government-mandated vaccine passports in Texas.”

“We will continue to vaccinate more Texans and protect public health — and we will do so without treading on Texans’ personal freedoms.”
