U.S. military department heads were ordered Tuesday to “immediately” start getting their troops vaccinated against the virus that causes COVID-19, two days after the first COVID-19 vaccine received federal approval.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said in a memorandum made public Aug. 25 that the secretaries of all military departments must “immediately begin full vaccination” of all service members who aren’t already vaccinated.
A timeline was not laid out in the memo, but Austin directed a rapid pace, telling the secretaries to “impose ambitious timelines for implementation.”
Austin announced on Aug. 9 that all active-duty military members would have to get a COVID-19 vaccine. He said he would either wait until a vaccine was approved by drug regulators or, if that did not happen by mid-September, he would ask President Joe Biden for a waiver.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Pfizer-BioNTech shot on Monday.
Austin emphasized in the new memo that the mandatory vaccination will only use vaccines that receive full licensure from the FDA. That means troops will be required to get the Pfizer jab, a Pentagon spokesman said this week.
Approximately 68 percent of the active force, including the National Guard and reserve members, have been fully vaccinated, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told reporters Wednesday. Another 8 percent have had one dose.
The numbers vary by department. Just 40 percent of the Army has been fully vaccinated, compared to 73 percent of the Navy.
Fully vaccinated means a person received the full vaccination regimen and more than two weeks has elapsed since the last dose. Pfizer’s regimen is two doses.
The Pentagon has previously said members can apply for religious or medical exemptions.
Rep. Don Bacon (R-Neb.), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, said Wednesday he supported a military vaccine mandate.
The military “can’t have a large percentage of forces unable to deploy because they’re sick,” he said on C-SPAN.
“This is the right thing to do—for our public health and national security,” Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) said on Twitter this week.
Others have spoken out about a military vaccine mandate, with 31 House members introducing a bill in June that would bar the secretary of defense from mandating COVID-19 vaccines.
“Why force the vaccine on young members of the military who have natural immunity due to a prior infection?” Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), one of the sponsors, wrote in a recent social media statement.

The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
Does it not ring a bell when we see what desperate efforts the democrats are making to coerce ALL the people to have that jab? They have never shown any particular interest of this kind in the people's welfare otherwise. All kinds of punishments and attempted segregation of the non-vaccinated are being perpetrated.
- First of all, there is a large number of farmaceutical as well as other companies who are benefiting grossly from the sale of these Covid-19 related vaccines, who probably want this to go on indefinitely. To maintain assistance in this fraud, they are paying thousands of pharmaceutical companies, doctors, medical schools, manufacturers of medical equipment, and, not at least, the POLITICIANS!
- The second, but the most important reason is their fear of not reaching their planned number of fully vaccinated people before their evil intent starts to show up within the next 2-3 years, which will FINALLY make ALL people understand the real truth of the global elites plan to reduce the world's population by 95%. If at this time there will still be a substantial number of unvaccinated people, they will no doubt see the ELIMINATION of the perpetrators of this horrific crime against humanity.
- And thirdly, the ongoing wave of Covid versions with prolonged close-downs will eventually destroy smaller and middle-class businesses, and in so doing, destroying the entire middle-class.
