#Military #VaccineMandates #Pentagon


    1. @i dont have time 2 reply thats already happening in afghanistan. the pentagon can give a plan on how to solve that crisis but they have time to force vaccines

  1. When I was in the U.S. military in the early to mid-1980s…there was no choice about whether I got a flu shot or other immunizations…your appointment at the base hospital was considered a direct order.

    1. ​@Deborah Freedman “Even though, in 1978, I had a signed letter from UCLA’s School of Infectious Disease, stating I had a high titer against V. cholera, the army vaccinated me anyway, and put me in the hospital with anaphylactic shock.” & you think that was a good thing?

    2. ​@Deborah Freedman Fourteenth Amendment, 1866. limits the power of the state to touch the body.

    3. @Deborah Freedman Lets also keep in mind “Jacobson v Massachusetts, 1905” was introduced so people would get the small pox vaccine a vaccine that had been around since 1798.

    4. I was going to comment the exact same thing when it was time for deployment or pre deployment we were told to go down and line up no if’s and’s or but’s. BM2 3rd fleet 84-88.

    5. @Jarrod Cornelius They take the vaccines as invisible armor against the invisible foes. Although biological weapons are outlawed by most international treaties, not everyone plays by the rules. They know what they’re doing.

      Just be happy that you can be safe at home and not in the frontlines being constantly exposed to something like Anthrax.

      More Americans died of Malaria than bullets in the Vietnam war. You’re not saving any of them when you’re taking away that invisible armor.

    1. Thanks for the clot shot Pentagon. This will be another fiasco rivaling your embarrassing Afghanistan cluster f**k.

    1. Who really cares anymore it happened and there is nothing we can change about it. We should put our focus on the origins of Covid-19 so we can make sure this never happens again.

    2. @Common Sense MSLSD was doing 15 to 20 reports a day about January 6th. Saying without a doubt….it was an INSURRECTION!!!
      First comment was somewhat sarcasm, MSLSD followers have no clue of the FBI findings.

    1. The White House, CDC, and FDA
      On July 29, 2021, the Biden White House announced a vaccine mandate. It said that “every federal government employee and onsite contractor will be asked to attest to their vaccination status.” People who work at the White House, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are all federal employees.

      Further, “anyone who does not attest to being fully vaccinated will be required to wear a mask on the job no matter their geographic location, physically distance from all other employees and visitors, comply with a weekly or twice weekly screening testing requirement, and be subject to restrictions on official travel.”

    2. they got their shots a long time ago. 99% of all dems and about 40% of all GQP are vaxxed aswell. their lieing to you bro. wake up.

  2. Remember to get vaccinated or a vaccinated person might get sick from the virus they got vaccinated against because you’re not vaccinated.
    Sounds legit.

    1. I don’t either but my friends are lefty so they are vaccinated and wearing masks. I do have a friend in his 30s who spent 5 days in the hospital.

    1. am sure some behind the scene pressure was applied and strings pulled to make this happen. 99 % of this stuff is all political

    2. its called science. it makes advances over time, especially in desperate situations. how far did you get in school? no science edu, hu.

    3. We have bipedal robots that can do parkour, self driving cars, and virtual reality technology now, but go off 👏🏾

  3. About time. Now, let’s have some vaccine mandates on air travel and entering federal buildings.

    1. That must’ve been tough to have to make a choice whether to continue to serve your country… or just quit for personal reasons.

      I’ve read that must’ve been in preparation for the Gulf War against Iraq using biological weapons of various missiles and artillery filled with chemicals, including Anthrax.

      Pretty sure that biological weapons are outlawed by several international treaties, but not everyone plays by the rules.

  4. At least now the Pentagon will have an excuse for losing. The Generals can blame their soldier’s cardiovascular and neurological damage from the “clot shot” and avoid responsibility for their idiotic decisions.

  5. Just like George Washington did for his troops with Variola. Following a proud tradition even before the formation of the country.
