Texans shouldn’t be required to show proof of vaccination & reveal private health information just to go about their daily lives.
I issued an Executive Order that prohibits government-mandated vaccine passports in Texas.

Abbott’s order merely prevents government-mandated vaccine passports
with the vast majority of private businesses remaining unaffected.
Only private businesses that received government money are prevented from requiring vaccine passports, meaning it would be almost impossible for the average citizen to know if a business that requires a vaccine passport is in compliance with the executive order or not. Nursing homes and elder care facilities are exempt regardless of their public or private status.
