While team-left yells”racism” over Georgia’s new voting law, they’re pushing a nationwide vaccine passport, requiring proof of vaccination in order to participate in regular life.
But, Texas is pushing .
Republican Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order Monday banning government-issued vaccine passports statewide.
Abbot stated that vaccinations can’t be government-mandated, and that it is the people’s decision whether they receive one.
“Every day, Texans are returning to normal life as people get the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine,” he said in a statement Tuesday. “But as I’ve said all along, these vaccines are always voluntary and never forced. Government should not require any Texan to show proof of vaccination and reveal private health information just to go about their daily lives.”
Abbot added that the Lone Star country would continue to provide vaccinations”and protect public health” without”treading on Texans’ personal freedoms.”

The executive order prevents state agencies from requiring a vaccine passport,”or conditioning receipt of providers on an individual’s COVID-19 vaccination status,” BizPacReview reports.
It also extends to some organization that receives public funds.
The move comes following Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued a similar executive order Friday, marking the initial state to stand up against the egregious prospect.
