Texas Continues Push-Back Against COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates

Across the US, state legislatures are proposing and passing laws to assert folks’ rights to decide for themselves whether to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Now, Texas legislators are proposing a new law, Senate Bill 51 that would make businesses and hospitals liable for discrimination if they mandate COVID-19 vaccinations. The Texas Tribune reports that while the state’s Republicans “wage a war” on vaccine mandates, a state Senate committee has voted on October 14 to advance SB 51. Medical and business groups have opposed this bill, cautioning that small businesses relying on federal money and immune-compromised people would be at risk. For his part, Texas Governor Greg Abbott says that vaccines are “safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus, but should always remain voluntary and never forced.” Per the Tribune, earlier in the week Abbott banned businesses from either employee or customer COVID-19 vaccine requirements via executive order.
