DAILY MAIL — Up to 40,000 Army National Guard soldiers across the country – or about 13 percent of the force – have not yet gotten the mandated COVID-19 vaccine and could lose their jobs as Thursday’s deadline approaches.

At least 14,000 of the soldiers who have not had the inoculations have flatly refused to get them. According to data obtained by The Associated Press, between 20 percent to 30 percent of the Guard soldiers in six states are not vaccinated, and more than 10 percent in 43 other states still need shots.

National Guard officials say states are doing all they can to encourage soldiers to get vaccinated by the time limit. And they said they will work with the roughly 7,000 who have sought exemptions, which are almost all for religious reasons.

‘We´re going to give every soldier every opportunity to get vaccinated and continue their military career. Every soldier that is pending an exemption, we will continue to support them through their process,’ said Lt. Gen. Jon Jensen, director of the Army National Guard. […]

  1. You’d think that by now, with the lifting of mask wearing/temperature taking ‘mandates’, employers of any kind would cool it on the‘ vaccinations’. They just can’t let go of permitted unjustified power over individual, sovereign choice where medical ‘intervention’ is concerned.

  2. Americans can serve and protect the Republic locally by using their training to train others that care to make their communities safe. The days of taking orders from corrupt politicians that answer to a globalist agenda should be over. At least until we flush 85% of them toxic losers out of office. I believe the founders of the country referred to them as militias.
