Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt Calls Joe Biden’s Vaccine Mandate Unconstitutional

Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt is the latest Republican governor to oppose the vaccine mandate imposed federally by President Joe Biden. He called the move unconstitutional as it violated the personal freedom of people to choose whether they want to take the vaccine or not. Furthermore, Stitt said, “I’ve heard from many Oklahomans who have concerns about President Biden’s vaccine mandate for businesses. I want to address those directly. This action is not just federal overreach. It’s unconstitutional.”

Taking Vaccine A Personal Choice, Says Governor Stitt

As far as vaccination is concerned, Stitt thinks it is always a personal choice. He cited his own example and said that he took the vaccine only after consulting his doctor. He said, “I cannot believe we have a president who wants to force Americans to choose between a vaccine and their job. The people this is affecting aren’t just statistics. They’re real Oklahomans with real concerns. They’re brave nurses and caretakers. They’re expecting mothers and fathers. They’re first responders and brave law enforcement. Getting the vaccine is a personal choice. Period.”

The rate of vaccination has slowed down in the US. The people who were willing to take the vaccine have already taken it. However, there is still a considerable group of people who are skeptical about taking the vaccine. That is why President Joe Biden announced vaccine mandates in the US and allowed private firms to mandate vaccines for their employees. In a recent speech, he insisted that the mandates are working as people are getting vaccinated. Moreover, he said, “The vaccine requirements that we started rolling out in the summer are working.”
