Jul 30 - Biden Orders Military to Move Toward Mandatory COVID Vaccine
 

 

President Joe Biden on Thursday said he has ordered the military to start taking steps toward making the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory for uniformed service members.

In comments at the White House, Biden stopped short of imposing a vaccine mandate right away.

But he said he has asked the Defense Department to look into how, and when, the military will add vaccines to protect against COVID-19 to the list of other vaccinations service members must receive.

Biden said making the vaccines mandatory is important because troops often serve in places where vaccination rates are low and COVID is prevalent.

"Men and women in uniform, who protect this country against grave threats, should be protected as much as possible from getting COVID-19," he said.

COVID vaccines are now available on an emergency use basis. Until the Food and Drug Administration issues full approval for the vaccines, the military cannot legally make them mandatory for service members.

When asked whether Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is open to mandating troop vaccinations before the vaccine is fully approved by the FDA, Biden said, "I know he's open to it.

"The question is, when is the right time to get the most bang for the buck," Biden continued. "A lot of this is timing. I think it's going to happen, but ... it's still a temporary approval."

Biden said he would not pressure health agencies to come to any conclusions on approving the vaccine, but said he thinks they will reach their conclusions in early fall.

Vaccination rates are slowing in the military, as they are in other spots around the country.

In mid-July, Austin said that 70% of active-duty troops had received at least one shot of a vaccine, and 62% were fully vaccinated.

The Pentagon's COVID website said that more than 1 million service members are fully vaccinated, and another 233,000 are partially vaccinated.

That equates to at least 60% of the total military force of roughly 2.1 million -- including active, Guard and reserve troops -- who are at least partially vaccinated, though not all Guard and reserve troops who have been vaccinated may be recorded in those numbers.

Biden's directive, along with other initiatives he unveiled that are intended to encourage and make it easier for civilians to get vaccinated, come as vaccination rates are slowing and concerns are spreading about a more transmissible coronavirus mutation called the Delta variant.

After the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention earlier this week recommended that even fully vaccinated people wear masks indoors in areas of the country where the virus is rapidly spreading, the military followed suit.

The highly trafficked Pentagon also reimposed its own mask mandates, even though its location in Arlington, Virginia, is seeing only moderate COVID spread overall.

In his remarks at the White House, Biden decried the way COVID vaccines have become politicized by some, and praised Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Republican Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey for encouraging citizens of their states to get the shots.

"This is not about red states and blue states, it's literally about life and death," Biden said. "I know people talk about freedom. I learned growing up ... with freedom comes responsibility. The decision to be unvaccinated impacts someone else. Unvaccinated people spread the virus. ... So please, exercise responsible judgment. Get vaccinated.

"It's an American blessing that we have vaccines for each and every American," he continued. "It's such a shame to squander that blessing."

Rodrigo Duterte told a national address on Wednesday: "For those who do not want it, well, for all I care, you can die anytime."

He also said he wants the police to restrict the movement of people who refuse coronavirus vaccines: "To those people who do not want to be vaccinated, I am telling you, don't go out of your house."

"If you go out of your house, I will tell the police to return you to your home. You will be escorted back to your house because you are a walking spreader."

Only 6% of the country is vaccinated, according to Reuters.

Duterte previously threatened to jail people who refuse to get a coronavirus vaccine.

Supply delays have also slowed the vaccination rate in some parts of the country, Bloomberg reported.

So just for context.

In 2009 I was stationed on board the Uss Carl Vinson. During that time the swine flu was popping. We went out to sea for a few days then all of a sudden we were required to get this random shot.

No one knew what was in the shot, we just knew you couldn’t get off the ship without it once we got in port. It was about 3,500 to 4,000 people. I don’t think Biden actually has to “order” nothing.

Over half the military is vaccinated, and I’ll be interested in seeing how the others would react if “forced”.

So for those that think the vaccine is some evil, mark of the beast, k*ll us all bullsh*t. Do you really think we (the war mongering, world police USA) would k*ll off all our troops with a vaccine if it really wasn't geared toward protecting us?

I was deployed all last year. Got the vaccine in March, over in Doha. Received the Janssen one. Me and few other people didn’t have any side effects. Other people though, pretty much were dying first 2 days. Then again majority of those folks weren’t working in the sun, working out or eating right. Nor, on any regiment of vitamins and proper hydration. They mainly ate heavy trash foods, drank, smoke and didn’t workout for months before receiving. Of course there’s no proof, any of that helps. But a healthy body gives a stronger chance of battling. My hospital has mainly been bodies of obese and up people. The types to be winded just walking to their car, but eat 3 meals of straight fast food and snacks plus. Just my experience…

I mostly agree but somehow I feel like if it becomes mandatory there will be a mass Exodus from the military because if it.

To the people who chose to get vaccinated, how do you feel about people being forced to do it?

Should they have a right to decide what is put in their bodies?

Like I said to the majority of folks. Everyone should have the freedom to choose. But... if you end up sick and dying and start begging for support. The response to help, should be dismal or put at the back of the line. When it comes to other major health events ie: Heart Attacks, circulatory issues, and other major issues that aren't "avoidable". Basically, you'll wait somewhere for a bed instead of being seen immediately as the initial waves were when there was no vaccine.
