Null and void, but still causing headaches: Pentagon’s legal woes over COVID vaccine mandate persist:
The Pentagon issued a decree in August 2021, at the height of the pandemic, that all U.S. troops must get the COVID-19 vaccine, and then it launched a logistical push to get the shot to every service member stationed around the world.
In December, amid heightened clashes over the vaccine mandates and individual rights, Congress passed and President Biden signed a defense spending bill repealing that mandate, forcing defense officials to take the rare step of rolling back a seemingly ironclad order.
That may have been the easy part.
The end of the military’s coronavirus mandate has sparked complex legal questions for the Defense Department, troops across each military service, legal scholars and attorneys on both sides of the vaccine debate. Chief among them is exactly how to punish — or not — the service members who refused the shot and, as the Pentagon argues, refused to follow the “lawful order” handed down by Mr. Biden, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and officers up and down the military’s chain of command.
Pentagon officials say they are reviewing case-by-case instances of service members declining the vaccine. Some critics say that approach creates even more problems and could result in a headache for the military for years to come.
“It’s a total mess,” said Sean Timmons, a Houston lawyer with the firm Tully Rinckey PLLC, who has represented military personnel challenging the vaccine mandate. “Each branch and service — it’s up to its discretion to decide how to handle each individual case, almost on a case-by-case basis. That’s problematic.” --->READ MORE HERE

"Concerning": Myocarditis Diagnoses Spiked In Military in 2021, New Data Show:
The rate of myocarditis spiked in the military in 2021, newly disclosed data show.
Diagnoses of myocarditis, a form of heart inflammation, jumped 130.5 percent in 2021 when compared to the average from the years 2016 to 2020, according to data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED).
The data was downloaded by a whistleblower and presented to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.).
Myocarditis is a serious condition that can lead to death.
All four of the COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States can cause myocarditis, according to U.S. officials. They added a warning for Johnson & Johnson’s shot this month.
COVID-19 can also cause myocarditis, though some experts say the data on that front is weaker.
The whistleblower downloaded the data from DMED in 2023, about a year after the Pentagon said it fixed a data corruption issue with the military health system.
The data also showed spikes in diagnoses of pulmonary embolism (41.2 percent), ovarian dysfunction (38.2 percent), and “complications and ill-defined descriptions of heart disease” (37.7 percent). --->READ MORE HERE
