(Worthy News) – Nearly 98% of the active duty Army had gotten at least one dose of the mandatory vaccine as of this week’s deadline for the shots, but more than 3,800 soldiers flatly refused and could start being removed from the next month, officials said Thursday.

The U.S. military‘s largest service, however, reported the lowest number of service members seeking a religious exemption – a bit more than 1,700 soldiers – compared with the other three smaller services. In comparison, there are more than 4,700 in the Air Force, 3,000 in the Marine Corps and 2,700 in the Navy who are requesting religious exemptions, according to data released by the services in the past week. None has yet been approved.

The announced earlier this year that the vaccine was mandatory for all service members, including the National Guard and Reserve. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has said repeatedly that getting the vaccine is critical to maintaining a healthy, ready force that can be prepared to defend the nation. The Pentagon is also weighing making the COVID-19 vaccine booster shots mandatory for service members. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
