Abbott suspends part of the Texas Health and Safety Code as part of his latest executive order

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) issued a new executive order on Wednesday blocking any governmental entity in the state from mandating COVID-19 vaccines, whether or not they are fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

The governor said he was also adding the issue to the agenda for the ongoing second special session of the Texas Legislature because “vaccine requirements and exemptions have historically been determined by the legislature” and to “avoid a patchwork of vaccine mandates across Texas.”
