Military Seeks to Require Covid-19 Vaccine, Unvaccinated Federal Gov’t Workers Required to Mask Up and Get Tested Twice a Week

Jeffrey Zients, a White House COVID-19 advisor, announced that it is “time to impose some requirements on COVID-19 vaccines.” During a briefing on Monday, Zients said, “it’s time to impose some requirements based on the realities of different risks unvaccinated individuals pose versus those who have been vaccinated.” He continued, explaining that any federal worker or contractor that desires to be unvaccinated must wear a mask and be tested for COVID-19 as much as twice a week.

This proclamation from the White House should not be of surprise to anyone. The Biden Administration has been very pro-vaccine in recent months. Last week, President Biden applauded Big Tech companies like Facebook and Google that are mandating vaccines for their employees, saying, “I would like to see them continue to move in that direction.”

The President also explained his desire to mandate the vaccine nationwide but said, “it’s still a question whether the federal government can mandate the whole country.”

Last week, Biden took steps forward to demand that all military servicemen must take the COVID-19 vaccine. Interestingly enough, according to Pentagon data, only 28 U.S. service members have died as a “result” of COVID-19. Biden is toying with the idea of issuing a waiver that would require troops to receive the vaccine even though the vaccine has not been approved by the FDA yet. Biden said he will “look into how and when they will add COVID-19” to the list of mandatory vaccinations that the military must have.

The White House’s recent push in favor of the vaccine has stirred up controversy on Twitter. Political Commentator Rob Maness is skeptical of the safety behind the vaccine and believes it could harm our country’s defense if 100% of the military is vaccinated: “If the U.S. military forces the EUA vaccines on our troops, the potential danger to gravely damage our defense capability within 6-12 months is very high.”

US Senate Candidate in Pennyslvania, Sean Parnell, believes the government has too much power if they can mandate an experimental vaccine, saying, “My position on the COVID vaccine is pretty simple. By all means get the vaccine if you feel like you’re at risk or so choose, but let NO government mandate it. No vaccine passports or mandates. Ever.”
