Roughly one-third of US military members have declined to get
vaccinated for COVID-19, a Pentagon official said in a report
Wednesday.

Air Force Maj. Gen. Jeff Taliaferro, the Joint Staff’s vice
director for operations, told a congressional panel that
“acceptance rates are somewhere in the two-thirds territory,”
according to the Daily Beast.

While the vaccine is “clearly safe for service members,”
soldiers need education “to help them understand the benefits”
of the shots, he told the House Armed Services Committee.

In total, the Defense Department has fully vaccinated 147,000
service members and 359,000 have received a first dose, Pentagon
official Robert Salesses told the outlet.

Those who have declined can still be deployed, Taliaferro said.

“We’ve already demonstrated over the last year that we’re fully
capable of operating in a COVID environment,” he said, according
to Inside Defense.

Officials said they expect all Department of Defense personnel —
which also includes civilians and contractors — will be
vaccinated by late July or early August, the site reported.

At least 235,258 people in the department have been infected
with COVID-19 in the past year, according to a Military.com
tally, with many of the worst outbreaks happening aboard Navy
ships — including the USS Theodore Roosevelt, where hundreds of
sailors got the bug last year.

The military acceptance rate of the vaccine is on par with the
general population of the US, according to a journal of Social
Science & Medicine study, which found that 31 percent of the
general population don’t plan on getting vaccinated.

An earlier study found that up to 51 percent of Americans would
refuse the shots.

A rep for the Pentagon didn’t immediately respond to a request
for comment Wednesday.

Fuck Biden and his Chinese masters.

Now the *Democrats have a list* of soldiers and officers that they will
send to Alaska or force into early retirement or bring up on FAKE
CHARGES like they did with TRUMP.

It's a Communist Chinese style purge.

That's karma

Banning guns and de-funding police won't lower crime if you follow the
Democrats Rhetoric. *And their very own Democrat actions confirm* that
even *they believe they're lying* since they're doing the opposite *to*
*reduce any crimes "you" might commit against the Government* that they
control and apparently they *believe guns and fences and police* *will*
*protect* them from your crime and violence. So why won't those same
things protect you from crime and violence?

Actually the Department of Defense has threatened to activate long term
Quarantine, Naval personal who do not take the Vaccination. Many have
plead for their state Congress persons and Senators to intervene with
this decision. Officials don't seem to recognize the fact that these
personal are volunteers and it could very well damage the recruitment.
This is at a time that some Democrats are moving to have drafting
recruits declared unconstitutional. Our draft system requires that at
age 18 you must sign up for the draft, but cannot be drafted unless a
war is declared and Congress vets a mandatory draft.
