'Huge Exodus' Could Gut Military as Vaccine Deadline Approaches; Staggering Number Of US Troops Remain Unvaccinated As Deadlines Approach, and other C-Virus related stories

Rep. Crenshaw Warns 'Huge Exodus' Could Gut Military as Vaccine Deadline Approaches:
Thousands of members of America’s armed forces have not yet complied with Pentagon directives to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
As vaccination deadlines near, Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw’s words from last month take on new significance.
“Question for the SECDEF: are you really willing to allow a huge exodus of experienced service members just because they won’t take the vaccine?” the former Navy SEAL tweeted last month, using an acronym for secretary of defense.
“Honestly, Americans deserve to know how you plan on dealing with this blow to force readiness – it’s already causing serious problems,” Crenshaw said.
Staggering Number Of US Troops Remain Unvaccinated As Deadlines Approach:
With vaccination deadlines fast approaching, hundreds of thousands of US service members remain either unvaccinated or partially vaccinated against Covid-19, according to the Washington Post.
The Navy has been most compliant with President Biden's July edict that the nation's 2.1 million troops take the jab. According to the report, 98% of active duty seamen have gotten at least one shot, while 90% are fully vaccinated. That's in stark contrast to the Marines, where just 72% are fully vaccinated. Meanwhile, over 60,000 Air Force personnel have just three weeks to meet the DoD's Nov. 2 deadline.
Among the Army Guard and Reserve - which have until June 2022 to come into compliance, under 40% are fully vaccinated.
"We expect all unvaccinated soldiers to receive the vaccine as soon as possible. Individual soldiers are required to receive the vaccine when available," said Army spokesman Lt. Col. Terence M. Kelley, adding that the June deadlines "allow reserve component units necessary time to update records and process exemption requests." --->READ MORE HERE
