One-third of the US military are still not fully vaccinated with the COVID vaccine.
The Daily Mail reported this morning on the nightmare in the US military.
Only 68 per cent of the US is military is fully vaccinated against the coronavirus with less then five weeks to go before the mandate deadline passes.
About 468,000 – or 32 percent – of the military’s 1.46 million total employees weren’t fully inoculated Wednesday ahead of the November 28 target date for active-duty Navy and Marines.
About 82 percent of the total force has received at least one jab, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said, meaning about 263,200 members have yet to receive a single dose of an FDA-approved vacc2ine,
The figures are more promising among the active-duty force, where 97 per cent have received at least one shot and 87 per cent are fully vaccinated.
Active Army troops must be fully inoculated by December 15, while Reserve and National Guard employees have until June 30, 2022 to get the jab, the US Army said.
Kirby told reporters Wednesday that there’s been little resistance to the vaccine.
‘People understand that this is an important program,’ he said. ‘And they’re participating in it.’
In addition, the Daily Mail says this:
There have been 383,560 coronavirus cases and 578 deaths in the military community since the start 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 Secretary of Defense then put in place the policy in the military requiring the vaccine.
Communist China isn’t mandating vaccines but the US military is.
