Governor of Texas, Republican Greg Abbott signed an executive order Monday stating that no company in his state can tell its employees to vaccinate against Govt-19. This is a challenge for US President Joe Biden.
Biden announced a month ago that his government planned to vaccinate the majority of workers in private companies or to issue weekly negative test results for Govt-19.
Although the move is still in development and has not been implemented, its announcement has provoked the anger of conservative leaders such as Abbott.
In response, Abbott on Monday signed an executive order banning “any company”, including private companies, from vaccinating their employees in Texas.
In addition, he asked the Republican-dominated state legislature to pass a law for the same purpose.
Abbott has already signed another administrative order prohibiting schools and local authorities from requesting vaccination tests from teachers, students or officials, which has already been challenged in court by the San Antonio City School District.
The Republican governor was vaccinated against Govt-19 in front of television cameras and told Texans to be vaccinated; But in recent months, he has relentlessly fought against city or school district regulations that make the use of masks mandatory or require proof of vaccination.
The terms announced by Biden in September are being developed by the Department of Labor and it is not yet known when it will be officially issued.
The rule is expected to affect about 80 million workers, two-thirds of the country’s workforce.
Across the United States, 56.4% of the population is fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The average number of vaccines in Texas is low, where 51.8% of the population is fully vaccinated.
However, andAnthony Fossie, a leading figure in the fight against the corona virus in the United States, has warned that the corona virus outbreak will continue to be high in the country.So, “Be careful not to announce success in advance.”
Also, within the framework of the ‘Halloween’ celebration at the end of October, Fouci invited the minors to come out and “enjoy” the event, but, during an interview with the chain CNN, Perhaps this date is “a good time to think about why vaccination is important,” he said.
In this sense, Vaccinated adults are urged to protect themselves as well as act as a barrier against the virus for their children..
In this way, it adds to the fact that the celebration takes place outside as parents are vaccinated, which will give some reassurance to the citizens and the government of President Joe Biden.
