A new executive order was released Thursday from Governor Mike Parson regarding vaccine mandates in Missouri.

Governor Parson says that the executive order protects the individual rights of Missourians against overreaching federal COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

This comes as the Biden Administration moves to make vaccinations compulsory for nursing home workers, federal employees and contractors.
The mandates from the White house have medical and religious exemptions, but they are vague.

House Minority Leader Crystal Quade says, the governor’ order “appears carefully crafted to do absolutely nothing – except promote the attorney general’s latest frivolous lawsuit at taxpayer expense.”

The governor calls vaccine mandates handed down from D.C., “federal intrusion.”
