Indiana Conservative Leaders Opposed to Vaccine Mandate

(Indianapolis, IN) - Indiana chief executive Eric Holcomb may be one of those governors President Joe Biden has to “get out of the way” to mandate vaccines.

Referring to a comprehensive plan to require vaccination or weekly COVID-19 testing for a large percentage of America’s workforce, Biden said the issue is not about freedom or personal choice.


Holcomb issued a statement Friday calling Biden’s vaccination or testing proposal “authoritarian” and “a bridge too far.” Holcomb emphasized his support for vaccines but argued it's not the government's role to mandate them.


Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita said he is preparing legal action against federal vaccine mandates affecting Hoosiers’ ability to choose.


Even Republican Senator Mike Braun, who has been reserved in speaking on this issue, said the President’s proposal violates individual liberties.
