One-third of the U.S. military is still not fully vaccinated with the COVID vaccine.
The Daily Mail reported this morning about the nightmare in the U.S. military.
Only 68 percent of the U.S. military is fully vaccinated against the coronavirus with less than five weeks left before the mandate deadline expires.
About 468,000 – or 32 percent – of the army’s 1.46 million total employees were not fully vaccinated before the target date of 28 November for active duty navy and marines.
About 82 percent of the total force received at least one stab, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said, meaning about 263,200 members still received a single dose of an FDA-approved vaccine,
The figures are more promising among the active service force, where 97 per cent received at least one shot and 87 per cent were fully vaccinated.
Active Army troops must be fully vaccinated by December 15, while employees of the Reserve and National Guard have until June 30, 2022 to get the hang of it, the U.S. military said.
Kirby told reporters on Wednesday there was little resistance to the vaccine.
“People understand that this is an important program,” he said. “And they take part in it.”
In addition, the Daily Mail says:
There have been 383,560 coronavirus cases and 578 deaths in the military community since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Department of Defense.
[These numbers actually look high for deaths and likely include a number of soldiers with numerous other comorbidities.]
In April, Democrats begged Biden to make the vaccine mandatory in the military.
Biden’s worthless defense minister then instituted military policy requiring the vaccine.
Communist China does not require vaccines, but the US military does.
