A total of 206 Marines have been removed for refusing to comply with the Pentagon’s mandate that all troops get vaccinated against the Wuhan coronavirus, a Marine Corps spokesperson announced Thursday.
In an emailed statement, Capt. Andrew Wood, who is a Marine Corps spokesperson, said that 95 percent of the more than 182,000 active-duty Marines have at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine. The vaccination rate for reservists increased from 86 percent partially-vaccinated to 83 percent fully vaccinated.
Two weeks ago, on Dec. 16, a spokesperson for the Marine Corps said that 103 members had been kicked out for refusing to get vaccinated. The announcement, from Maj. Jim Stenger, a Marine Corps spokesperson, said that the service members were separated with a “vaccine refusal” discharge code. Last week, Politico reported that the number had risen to 169.
The deadline for active-duty Marines to be vaccinated was Nov. 28. Reservists were given until Dec. 28 to comply with the mandate. The Marine Corps is still processing over 1,000 administrative and medical exemptions. They have not approved any processed religious exemptions, which exceeds 3,000.
In August, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin mandated that all members of the military get vaccinated. Each branch enforced its own vaccination deadlines.
Two weeks ago, the U.S. Army announced that 98 percent of active-duty soldiers had gotten vaccinated against COVID-19. In January, the announcement noted, the Army will begin separating soldiers who did not get vaccinated who are not waiting for a medical or religious exemption to be processed. At the time of the announcement, the Army had made four permanent medical exemptions and no religious exemptions.
They’re purging the remaining Americans from the military.
“95 percent of the more than 182,000 active-duty Marines have at least one dose”
What if they refuse the 2nd shot? a booster? More boosters?
The headline deflects from the fact that the proceedings continue and there could be over 1,000 discharged from the Corps before this is finished.
A total of 206 out of 182,000 represents 0.1%.
Looks like the new Corps would leave a whole bunch of men behind on the field anyhow.
The sheep dogs have been fired so the wolves can get at the lambs ...
and how many died or are ill from the jab ???
this seems to be one of those government actions that seem like nothing to the low IQ politicized bureaucrats in charge — but the narrative of which will be remembered for a VERY long time, and which will have very damaging, long-term consequences that become obvious later.
If 95% are vaccinated....who are they going to catch it from...that’s assuming that the vaccines work
They had better get busy rewriting regulations to allow for body and face piercing as well as pink and purple haired daughters are f all those suburban moms who will have their daughters drafted to make up the difference.
So China can attack us obviously and we can do nothing about it.
Yeah. A whole new bunch of "men"--like trannies, those looking for free sex changes--those kind of "men". Just softening up our defenses to make China's job easier to defeat us. I'd love to see all of Mushbrain's surrender-squad, like Milley, hang. Right next to their treasonous CIC and any others responsible for weakening our military, in any way.
5 criteria guaranteed to get a marine kicked out over a no vaccine charge:
1. White male
3. Evidence he’s conservative, like his facebook page,
4. that he voted for DJT
5. that he’s from Texas
Re: ‘Hire them immediately!’ My thoughts, exactly. If I had a private security firm, or if I had enough billions, I would offer each and every one of them a substantial contract. Imagine the names, titles one could use for each squadron: The No Jab; The Pure Bloods; The Control Group; The I Ain’t No Guinea Pig; The Jab This; The Let’s Go Brandon; and on and on...
How much money is wasted. These people are trained warriors.
Just throw them out?
We could only hope; 206 out of 182,000 is pathetic.
They need recruits that will gladly fire on American citizens.
