After this afternoon’s article from a Navy Officer who is challenging the COVID-19 vaccine mandate in the military, a US Marine Officer sent us information he had gathered on the issue.
This afternoon we reported on a Navy Officer’s information showing the COVID-19 vaccine mandate is not legal.
US Navy Officer Provides Documents That Show Navy Lacks Legal Basis for Mandating Vaccines Currently Available to its Naval Forces
Here is what our marine friend shared.
I believe that the Navy/Marine Corps leadership and our senior Navy Medical professionals have not met their responsibility to adequately read and follow standing statutory law, DoD and service-specific orders and instructions. As a result, may have promulgated an order that results in personal detriment, harm, or injury to a subordinate Service member; and is a violation of law or regulation; unauthorized; arbitrary, capricious, or an abuse of discretion; or unjust by virtue of the circumstances and manner in which vaccines have been administered.
He bases his analysis on the similar documents prepared by the Navy officer in the article above. He claims that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine is a EUA product, not an FDA-approved product, and has not received full licensure from the FDA.
The Marine Officer claims that any order requiring the administration of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine and labeled vaccines as if they were the legal equivalents to the FDA approved COMIRNATY or as if they were, themselves, a licensed vaccine is an unlawful order based on fraud and in violation of the requirements U.S.C. 21, Chapter 9 Sub Chapter V, Part E, Section 360bbb-3(e)(1)(A).
Also, an attorney representing three active-duty Marines with the same issue contacted us.
He stated that we may want to consider an Oct 29, 2021 revision of the FDA’s EUA letter (and Pfizer’s updated EUA vaccine information sheet) which affirmatively discloses that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 and COMIRNATY vaccines are NOT identically formulated, but instead contain different ingredients. They have revised the language to state that they are “analytically comparable.”
This recent development means that the factual “basis” relied upon by the DOD and US Navy is no longer valid. He is going to be filing an appeal to our denied religious accommodation requests at the end of the week, due to the blatant disregard for the Marine Corps and DOD policies in the review and adjudication of these requests.
