Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently signed an executive order banning "vaccine passports".
The executive order bars state agencies and places that receive public funds from requiring proof of vaccination against Covid-19 as a condition of receiving goods or services.
[A]s I have 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.Gov. Greg Abbott
The Texas order follows a similar order entered by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. DeSantis cited privacy concerns as a reason for banning vaccine passports.
