The current administration is now pushing our young men and women in the US Army to get the vaccine and it is mandatory.
We all knew that this will happen.
So what happened to “my body, my choice?”
Someone should explain the science on vaccinating young healthy people who have next to zero chance of suffering severe complications from the virus?
This aggressive plan comes at the same time that myocarditis was identified in healthy military personnel within 4 days of receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Here’s an excerpt from The Army Times report:
The US Army is going to demand vaccinations of The Army has directed commands to prepare to administer mandatory COVID-19 vaccines as early as Sept. 1, pending full Food and Drug Administration licensure, Army Times has learned.
The directive came from an executive order sent to the force by the Department of the Army Headquarters.
Army Times obtained a portion of a recent update to HQDA EXORD 225-21, COVID-19 Steady-State Operations.
“Commanders will continue COVID-19 vaccination operations and prepare for a directive to mandate COVID-19 vaccination for service members [on or around] 01 September 2021, pending full FDA licensure,” the order said. “Commands will be prepared to provide a back brief on servicemember vaccination status and way ahead for completion once the vaccine is mandated.”
The Army currently has around 70 percent of its force vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to Army Lt. Gen. Ronald Place, director of the Defense Health Agency.
However, demand for the vaccine has fallen off in recent months across the military, roughly following a similar drop in demand among the American people.
The Veterans Affairs administration is currently weighing a plan to require all VA staffers to receive the vaccine, amid growing worry worldwide about the more severe Delta variant of the virus.
The Navy also recently told sailors to expect a mandatory vaccination program despite having the highest vaccine acceptance rate thus far.
