U.S Army Soldiers May Face Dismissal for Refusing the Covid Vaccine

U.S Army Soldiers May Face Dismissal for Refusing the Covid Vaccine

The Index Today

U.S Army stated on Tuesday that Soldiers who refuse to take the COVID vaccine may face suspension from their duties or even termination.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has recently ordered all active duty members to receive the vaccination after it was approved by the FDA in late August. It has also been stated that soldiers may seek exemption based on religious, medical or administrative grounds.
Army members including commanders, sergeants major, and officers in command select list positions will likely face suspension or permanent relief if they refuse to get vaccinated. The army stated, “While soldiers who refuse the vaccine will first be counseled by their chain of command and medical providers, continued failure to comply could result in administrative or non-judicial punishment – to include relief of duties or discharge.”
U.S Army Surgeon General Raymond Scott Dingle told reporters, “This is quite literally a matter of life and death for our soldiers, their families and the communities in which we live.” The army is hoping to have all active members to be fully vaccinated by December whereas reserve and National Guard units have until June 2022.
The U.S Department of Defense has reported over 450 deaths and over 300,000 covid cases across its personnel. The vaccination rollout is expected to help lower casualties and ensure health safety.
