Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on Monday prohibiting all state entities from enforcing COVID-19 vaccine mandates, including private jobs, amid alarming numbers from the pandemic virus nationwide.

This order establishes that no entity in the state may enforce vaccination in a mandatory manner against any person who objects on any “grounds of personal conscience” based on a “religious belief” O “Medical reasons”, including prior recovery from COVID-19.

“The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus, but it must remain voluntary and never forced “Abbott said in a press release.

He also asked the Texas state legislature to approve a law under the same effect and noted that the executive order will be rescinded after the approval of said legislation. CNN.

Regarding its anticovid policies, in August Abbott had suffered a defeat in court by ruling against a ban on local authorities imposing the use of masks in public schools.

Texas, a ‘stumbling block’ for Biden

These types of measures have represented a challenge for Joe Biden, who has emphasized prioritizing prevention and vaccination policies against COVID-19, as occurs in Florida with Ron DeSantis.

“We face a lot of pushback, especially from some of the Republican governors. The governors of Florida and Texas are doing everything they can to undermine the life-saving requirements that I have proposed. “Biden said during a speech last month.

“This is the worst kind of policy, because it puts the lives of the citizens of their states at risk, especially children. And I refuse to give in “, said the president.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the United States, there is a 56.4% of vaccinated population.

In the case of Texas, the 51.8% people are already immunized, and the state saw a decline in new cases and hospitalizations; However, the number of deaths since the start of the pandemic is already approaching 67,000 because of the arrival of the delta variant.
