Texas COVID-19 Vaccine Freedom Act (HB 81 and SB 177)
Proposed Ban Would Provide Relief to People Living Under Mandates
By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH
Many people have told me they would not even think about COVID-19 vaccines if it weren’t for mandates. The vast majority of vaccine recipients have told me they took the shot for some reason other than a clinical benefit including employment, school, travel, or family desires.
The varied positions and responses to COVID-19 vaccination from public health agencies, states, colleges and universities, and employers are a tip-off that the risks of SARS-CoV-2 infection and vaccination are not viewed similarly from group to group.
The Republican Party of Texas has endorsed The Texas COVID-19 Vaccine Freedom Act (HB 81 and SB 177) by Rep. Brian Harrison and Sen. Mayes Middleton. The current language of these identical bills can be found here:
