Amid Litigation by Attorney General and Pressure from Public, Governor Supposedly Halts His Mandate of COVID-19 Shot for Students

AG Jeff Landry Thanks Parents for Ensuring Their Children’s Medical Freedom

BATON ROUGE, LA - Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement after the Louisiana Senate announced the Governor has stopped his rule requiring the COVID-19 shot for entry to Louisiana schools:

“Faced with losing a court case or losing a legislative vote, the Governor has evidently walked back yet another of his COVID overreaches. The Governor and his allies in the Legislature tried many maneuvers, but apparently the will and the voice of the people were too much to handle.

While we await for the official action by the Governor – I applaud the mama bears and the devoted fathers, grandparents, and others who work tirelessly to ensure the medical freedoms of their loved ones.

Louisiana children should never be mandated or harassed by the Governor into receiving the COVID-19 shot. Child medical decisions should be made by their guardians, not the Governor or his bureaucrats.

I also thank Representative Crews for joining me in the legal challenge to the Governor’s LDH rule. I will not waver in my defense of liberty.”
