Texas Governor Greg Abbott issues executive order banning Biden’s vaccine passportsavril 6, 2021
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has passed an executive order banning Joe Biden’s proposed “vaccine passports.”
The proposed passports are meant to provide credentials for individuals who have already been vaccinated, making it easier for private entities like cruise lines, airports, or sporting and music venues to re-open safely.
“Texans shouldn’t be required to show proof of vaccination & reveal private health information just to go about their daily lives,” Mr Abbott tweeted, along with a video. “I issued an Executive Order that prohibits government-mandated vaccine passports in Texas. Don’t tread on our personal freedoms.”
Last week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, also a Republican, issued a similar executive order banning the use of vaccine passports.
