Pentagon rules: All members of military must get Covid-19 vaccine by Sept. 15

The Pentagon announced today that all members of the military must get a Covid-19 vaccine by Sept. 15. If the FDA moves the deadline for final approval of the vaccine, or if Covid continues to spread rapidly, the deadline may be moved up. The announcement was expected and leaked last week.

Some 64 percent of active duty military personnel are fully vaccinated.

Tens of thousands of woman of child-bearing age are in the military, and it’s unclear how the vaccine may affect them if they are pregnant or become pregnant. In 2016, over 13 percent of the women of childbearing potential in the military had a pregnancy-related “event,” according to the military’s health website. There were more than 64,000 live births in this military sub-population in 2016.

The Covid vaccine mandate also extends to military contractors.

The memo from Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said:

As many of you know, President Biden asked me to consider how and when we might add the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccines to the list ofthose required for all Service members. So, over the last week, I have consulted closely with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Secretaries of the Military Departments, the Service Chiefs, and medical professionals. I appreciate greatly the advice and counsel they provided.

Based on these consultations and on additional discussions with leaders ofthe White House COVID Task Force, I want you to know that I will seek the President’s approval to make the vaccines mandatory no later than mid-September, or immediately upon the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) licensure, whichever comes first.

By way of expectation, public reporting suggests the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine could achieve full FDA licensure early next month.

The intervening few weeks will be spent preparing for this transition. I have every confidence that Service leadership and your commanders will implement this new vaccination program with professionalism, skill, and compassion. We will have more to say about this as implementation plans are fully developed.

In the meantime, we will comply with the President’s direction regarding additional restrictions and requirements for unvaccinated Federal personnel. Those requirements apply to those of you in uniform as well as our civilian and contractor personnel.

We will also be keeping a close eye on infection rates – which are on the rise now due to the Delta variant – and the impact these rates might have on our readiness. I will not hesitate to act sooner or recommend a different course to the President if I feel the need to do so.

To defend this Nation, we need a healthy and ready force. I strongly encourage all DoD military and civilian personnel – as well as contractor personnel – to get vacci~ated now and for military Service members to not wait for the mandate.

All FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccines are safe and highly effective. They will protect you and your family. They will protect your unit, your ship, and your co-workers. And they will ensure we remain the most lethal and ready force in the world.

“Get the shot. Stay healthy. Stay ready,” he wrote.

  • Can someone please explain why so many people (regardless of party identity) are so anti-vaccine? Could you imagine if the public refused to take smallpox, polio, or any other vaccination during a pandemic? I get it you feel it is a freedom of choice issue, but I hate to tell you, if you are dead, you don’t have the freedom to do anything!!!

    • You have been listening.

    • They need to talk to their doctor if the have one. Stop practicing without a license.

      • Talked to all five of my doctors, all specialists in their field, and all of them told me not to take the vaccine. It’s too dangerous for me. So maybe people need to not put everyone under one box of medical treatment and respect people’s medical freedom and their doctors recommendations, instead of being an anti science, propaganda parrot.

        • Do what your doctor says.

      • Kind of like you raging that everyone needs to get the jab..? Isn’t practicing medicine without a license…? Got any other koolaid to sling..?

    • The reason is that polio and small pox weren’t man made. This vaccine doesn’t fall into the traditional definition of vaccine and it hasn’t been through a thorough time trial period. And additionally, the circumstances for which this event is very questionable from many perspectives as well as many motivations are very questionable. You want to jump in blindly that is your prerogative. My question to you is, why is it so damn important that those who don’t want the shot must be shamed and forced to have it by those who have?

      • Your question has been answered already 100’s of times. Pay attention.
        SARS viruses have been around for a long time. This strain is new. Vaccination science has been the works for sometime. When FDA fully approves in the next few weeks it’ll be OK then?

        • The FDA has approved scores of medicines and procedures, some of which turned out to have extreme side effects. Accutane, Baycol, Darvon, Meridia, surgical meshes, IUDs to name a few. This was after YEARS of testing before release. It is obvious that if the “vaccines” are approved by the FDA this early on, there is some serious pressure from the Biden administration for it to do so. And remember, unlike other drugs that have caused serious side effects even after testing, the vaccine makes cannot be sued for adverse effects.

        • Nah.

          Been living my entire adult life without;

          A doctor.
          Prescription medication.
          Vaccines.
          Fear of death.

          I don’t get sick. I don’t have medical bills. I don’t have side affects.

          Freedom baby.

          We are all gonna die one day. Too bad those who live in fear are already dead on the inside.

          Too bad.

      • Prove that this virus is manmade Brian. You can’t, of course but choose to parrot bullchit on here.

        • Where’s your proof that it isn’t man made or are you just parroting bullchit you see on here or you believe the lies the government tells you as CHICOM pulls their strings.

          • You’re the one indicating this virus is man-made, so you need to back up your bullchit. I don’t need to prove anything as I’ve just asked for your back-up.
            You don’t seem to understand how this all works Brian. You make a statement (other than your opinion) you need to provide back-up or be called out for bullchitting.
            Your turn.

    • Just like wearing a life jacket will save your life if you are thrown from your boat, you still have the choice to wear or not wear one. It is the persons choice. I know you will come back to how they are endangering others but living has its dangers.
      The vaccine is not FDA approved, just authorized. So it is still experimental. Nobody knows the long term affects of the vaccine and we won’t know them for years to come.
      I am vaccinated but I do support those who choose to not be.
      I am still waiting for those lefties who have been screaming “my body, my choice” to not apply this to vaccination. My body, my choice is the way I look at and so does everyone else.

      BTW, the military has forced its service members into many experimental treatments that have ended up causing severe issues down the road. This is why many service members are reluctant to get the shot.

    • There not anti-vaccine so stop calling them antivaxers. There against THIS so called “vaccine” that is actually a gene manipulation experiment never to have been tried on humans ever before. It was tried on animals and they all perished.
      Nobody can argue that we are experiencing censorship at levels never seen before in American history. Code words must be used while discussing this topic on YouTube and certain words will surly get you banned. The same censorship is rampant among many scientist, doctors and virologist that are screaming about the dangers of this gene manipulation that permanently change and suppress your natural immune system forever. Nobel peace prize doctors, highly accredited virologist, the inventor of the mrna vaccine, formal Pfizer vp among hundreds, have said this vaccine is for nefarious purposes and is the biggest mistake mankind has ever made. The PCR test was chosen purposely to manipulate the numbers after the inventor of the test said to absolutely not use it for testing covid. Government pays hospitals 13 thousand dollars for every covid case and 37 thousand dollars for any corpse they put on a vent. A covid test is not required for a DR to count an admitted patient (no matter what they checked in for) as a covid case resulting in more inflated numbers.
      The PCR test has now been recalled by the FDA but its still being used to test and fraudulently inflate case numbers. Covid has never been isolated, meaning they have been using a digital example of what they think it looks like all along. There is also no test to differentiate ANY variant of covid like the “Delta variant”. The CDC has been caught deleting COVID Vaccine Deaths From VAERS Website multiple times now.
      Please study Event 201, Agenda 21 and agenda 2030.
      You are being lied to and manipulated.
      The difference between a conspiracy theory and the truth….is six months.

      • Okay…..okay…….okay, I’m serious now, but I’m still LMAO. THANK YOU! I needed a good laugh.

        I haven’t laughed so hard at pure, unhinged conspiracy rants since I used to listen to that crazy “Coast to Coast with Art Bell,” when it was on KFQD a thousand years ago.

        • But you cant be bothered to check ANY of the information in my post can you?
          I get it, its your defense mechanism isn’t it?
          You cant handle the possibility of what I said being true so you laugh it off as “crazy”.
          Here’s a hint, use Duck Duck Go as a search engine instead of Google and stay away from the George Soros owned “fact checker BS.
          Enjoy your lock-down. (wink)

          • No doctor alive wants to have to tell parents why their children can’t breathe. I’m not sure they would be able to handle it if they found out it was their fault that they didn’t get their kids the vaccine. On a good note. I think there’s about 10 different flavors of spam out now. One for every day of the week and a couple for the weekend. Bon appetit.

      • You might want to pull your head out of the sand and take a look at what’s going on in the rest of the country, because it’s headed your way. There are only eight beds available in the entire state of Arkansas and icus now. A bunch of people died yesterday from covid. They hadn’t been vaccinated. A bunch of people are on ventilators. Medical doctors are saying that vaccinations reduce hospitalization. I would ask you to decide your medical degree, but you probably left that in your other pair of pants.

        • Dear Greg and Sophie, (aka epitome of Dunning Kruger effect)
          You can ignore reality, but you cant ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.

        • Like with the climate hysteria, I will not be manipulated by fear.

          The end of physical life comes for all of us. No amount of taxes, carbon credits, or vaccines are going to save you.

          All your compliance is doing is making you a slave to your own fear.

          Try freedom. Comes in cherry flavor.

      • Gene manipulation……BS. The Moderna vaccine that I took is not derived from a fetus and does Not manipulate any of my genes but rather it adds an additional element of protection in the cell wall to Prevent The virus from entering in. You probably won’t believe this either but the Moderna has also been shown to be HIGHLY EFFECTIVE against the delta variant. Remember when they used to say that putting a cellphone to close to your head could cause cancer of the brain?? Modern science is our greatest ally against ever increasing threats to our health, and we have the best science right here in the USA.

        • “Messenger RNA is genetic material that tells cells how to make proteins. So Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine candidate works by injecting a small piece of mRNA from the coronavirus that codes for the virus’ spike protein. This protein helps the coronavirus attach to and invade cells, and it’s what antibodies target and neutralize. Moderna’s mRNA vaccine spurs the body to produce the spike protein internally. That, in turn, triggers an immune response.”

          An immune response that has been argued overpowers you natural immunity and leaves you defenseless against any other threats.(for life)
          I suggest searching
          “Mass Vaccination in a Pandemic – Benefits versus Risks: Interview with Geert Vanden Bossche” on YouTube.

    • Because this is not a vetted vaccine Colin. The vaccine trials are you folks getting the vaccine…they have no idea what side effects are to come… It is not working or people would not still be getting covid!! What can’t YOU see About that??

      • The vaccine is keeping people from dying. I would say that’s kind of a success wouldn’t you?

        • Nothing can keep anyone from dying.

          Unless you area video game character with cheat codes.

          Your time will come.

          Which path do you choose?

          Freedom or fear?

      • The COVID-19 vaccines will prevent you from death or from ending up on a ventilator, unsure if you will live or die.
        It is tragic that certain politicians have egged on a barrage of insults, name-calling and misinformation which is circulated with very little fact-checking by the senders beforehand.

    • Because this is not a vaccine, it is an experimental RNA injection whose long term consequences are unknown. My personal belief is to not be the first or last person to use a new therapy, nor to use anything new to the market for less than 5 years, unless life expectancy is less than that.
      Just today Pfizer released their first study results of 45,000 people getting injection or placebo. The net was 14 deaths for placebo vs. 15 deaths with the shot. Hmmm.
      Also, evidence released from the CDC says that people receiving the injection still shed large amounts of virus even if they do not become ill. Hmmm.
      So you tell me why I should voluntarily subject mt body to participate in a Phase 3 trial, with not only no compensation, but also no liability to big pharma? Hmmm?
      And tell that to the 545,337 REPORTED adverse reactions (projections are 10x that number), 46,036 reaction hospitalizations, and 12,336 connected deaths as of July 30.
      And, I’ve had COVID, with most evidence showing superior long lasting immunity.

      • I’m going to run to get in line and get a third shot when the booster becomes available.

        • Of course you will.

          The vaccine is your holy sacrament.

          How precious.

      • Wow, you claim that people getting the Pfizer shot, 14 of them were scared to death from the placebo? They probably would have died anyway had they looked up and saw that the sky was falling.

    • Because I know people who are dead from taking this vaccine and I don’t feeling like playing Russian Roulette with experimental drugs.

    • Because I know people who are dead from taking this vaccine and I don’t want to play Russian Roulette with experimental drugs.

    • The big push for the polio vaccine in the 1950’s killed several hundred people before it was stopped and the subsequent media campaign rebranded it as a success. When was the last smallpox vaccination in the USA? And was smallpox a gene therapy, or did they just jab you with cowpox? There is a vast difference between being exposed to a “weakened form of” or dead disease agent and the gene-altering substances they are calling vaccines now. If people want to make the choice to be part of that experiment, they should be informed (which nobody really is, it seems). And if people do not want to be experimented upon, they should not be subjected to expulsion from the means of sustaining life we call society. That is beyond the pale and it’s outrageous that any American would support that. Yet here we are.

    • 3 Countries with Anti Vax Presidents who were not having the experimental vax in their country. One of them, may have been the one from Haiti. Outspoken. Talk of problems and afflictions that came and affected his people when Gates came to his town. Anyone all 3 presidents who died recently of coronary issues now replaces with Pro vaxers . Interesting. I didn’t believe it years ago when parents would not vax their kid I worried for my own kids health. I then met family at my school who had a 5 year old that had the MMR vax that started getting grand mall seizures, became non verbal.Very sad. before but into the whole I don’t want to vaccinate my kid, but I do now. Connect that to Vietnam never had cases of Autism before Bill Gates came to Vax.

      They are putting awful things in those injections. Look at the difference of shots we had as kids and now how many their are. Why should they have to sell us something if it works? Why hide HCQ finding and not let us buy it when all over the world it is used widely? DId you know that in Africa there is no covid spreading why? Huge population, because they regularly take HCQ to treat and prevent Malaria? It cheap , plentiful?

      We don’t need the JAB! The rich just want to get RICHER and Whistleblower say its a a bioweapon, which either way I don’t want aborted fetal tissue in my body. My BOdy My Choice!

    • It just might have something to do with witnessing politicians saying/ordering for the people to do one thing, but then completely ignoring their own rules.

      When we no longer trust those who are telling us what to do, we don’t do what they tell us.

      Besides that, I have a very robust immune system. It ain’t broke, so I don’t need to fix it.

      I cannot say this for most of America though, many still think that colorful breakfast cereal is part of a balanced diet.

  • Yup. Here it comes. These folks aren’t messing around. If you are on the left coast or New England, not much available for the unvaccinated to do. Stay home and eat spam.

    • I like spam

      • Yeah spam is good.

        • In your world, spam is probably health food.

          Bizarro world.

    • Greg, do you have any kind of a life beyond this news site? If you do, it must be very small.
      Good gawd man, get out and do something in Sunny Florida. Golf, bike, swim, chase alligators, but get a life… for your own sake.

      • I can’t. I’m recovering from covid. LOL

        • You are recovering from a virus so deadly, that we have to lock down the world?

          Strange, I thought an old koot like you would have been taken easily by the Devil Flu!

          I guess it’s not so bad after all.

          • Add this guy to your list Suzanne. Thanks.

  • Suzanne: don’t play the ‘women of childbearing age’ card. They are military personnel. When they deploy in theater,, they get ANTHRAX vaccines.. No ‘ifs,’ ‘and,’ or ‘buts.’ This is the FIRST time in the modern history of the armed forces of our country where military personnel were EVER given the possibility of options with vaccinations. It’s about time the SecDef and the President put National security number one. If a soldier, sailor, marine or airman — female or male — doesn’t want the vaccination, they can general discharge.

    • The military is not exempt from the Constitution. If military members have a religious or medical reason not to get a vaccine, then didn’t have to take the vaccine. They were always given that option. This go around there is no option. The Constitution and right to privacy are being trampled on and you are allowing it. Shame on you!!

  • This is beyond scary! I do hope tens of thousands of those in uniform invoke the UCMJ and their right to disobey an unlawful order!
    I have called Dan Sullivan as a USMJ Reserve Col and Senator to get with Senator Cotton and many others and support all those in and out of uniform on this! What is next, will I need a vaccine passport to get on JBER or to go to the VA?
    SecDef Austin is a political 4 Star, period. I never trusted him from the moment his name came up for nomination.

    • Deaf ears. Yawn. Tom Cotton is pro-vaccine.

      • The Cdc just fraudulently knocked that 12,336 VAERS number down to around 6000.
        This is the forth time they have been caught doing it.

    • Maybe. In a time of war you may be recalled. Roll up your sleeve.

    • Michael, did you ever hear of five-star generals by the names of Eisenhower? MacArthur? Marshall? Or modern four-stars named Mattis? Milley? Powell? Perhaps McCaffrey? Just like General Lloyd Austin III, all the aforementioned
      were, or are, West Point or Naval Academy graduates.

      All these flag officers’ academy studies cultivated them into modern American warrior-philospher politicians by DESIGN. That is because Eisenhower’s persona and performance as Supreme Allied Commander during World War II — a position equal parts warrior, politician and diplomat — established the modern ideal for officer education across the Academies during the latter 20th century and beyond.

      So, if there is any four-star flag officer from any of America’s service Academies in the Biden — or any other — administration, he or she is most certainly a politician, extremely well-educated and very highly qualified.

      • Sophie, your idol worship of these current military leaders is as unbecoming as their loyalty to China. And comparing our current leaders with those of Eisenhower’s era is an uneducated insult. The standards of our military academies have been compromised in the same proportion as the standards of our society and its education.

        • I didn’t like Powell but I really like Schwartzkopf.

        • You must feel real smart should be able to use known history as a defense mechanism. In the early days, Eisenhower wasn’t particularly a great general. Not even top of his class. Hell they fired Patton. Bradley was just a yes boy. Might be wise not to put your idolizing eggs in one basket. But then you have the luxury of History to prove us all wrong. I’m not anti-eisenhower don’t get me wrong I’m a Kansas boy. Eisenhower build some good roads.

      • The perfumed princes of the Pentagon are no angels. And argument from that authority carries no weight.

  • They will follow orders. It’s what they do.

    • I like how you say “they”.
      You are showing your true colors.

      • Yes. They are red white and blue, and my reference to “they” is our military. Are we crystal now comrade?

  • The Editor is vaccinated, so why continue to spread doubt with stories like this? Mainly to keep the people clicking away, no doubt.

    This is irresponsible journalism at its finest. Luckily, not many people actually read the site.

    • You do. Many are vaccinated but won’t admit it. Their hypocrisy won’t let them.

    • Whidbey the Cur, the all-out and hysterical fearmongering, bullying and shaming by the political establishment and corporate media to COERCE everyone into getting the death jab, ASAP, along with the rabid and egregious censorship of those who question or oppose this giant and unprecedented global experiment in human (un)health, including the censorship of thousands of scientists and medical professionals who have raised serious concerns regarding the death jabs, and the unbalanced authoritarianism surrounding this virus, should give anyone, ANYONE with the least bit of independent thought and critical thinking ability grave cause for concern.
      .
      But no, conformists and compliant sheep like you will just continue to place blind trust in the pronouncements and orders of a self-serving sociopathic elite who have repeatedly demonstrated that they do NOT deserve our trust, and do NOT have our best interests at heart. To think otherwise is to have the naivete, ignorance and gullibility of a small child.

      • Why so angry? Are we cross?

      • I like to put my faith in my medical doctor. They’re smarter than me and way way smarter than you.

        • You should never outsource your mind, just because you are dumb.

          Think for yourself man, come on.

      • Tisk tisk. Insults is all we get from you. Such an angry Bernie boy.

    • Yes Whidbey, do stay on your reservation where you are forced fed the latest propaganda, never any dissenting thought or opinion for you!. It would hurt to actually educate yourself just a wee bit wouldn’t it? We wouldn’t want you feeling uncomfortable now would we? Baa, Baa…

  • Suzanne is not playing any card here. She is just stating facts. She didn’t take a position either way. Your reading comprehension appears to be biased.

    • Military folks have had to conform to specified medical regimes for years, and that includes vaccines. The purpose of posting this story is solely to fire up the MRAK base and to give them something at which to target their anger. There are many cases of this type of story on MRAK, such as those about Dr. Zink taking a vacation, a diversity and inclusion officer being hired by the Muni, a Muni epidemiologist resigning, and many more.

      The content may be factual, but the story choice in and of itself illustrates the divisive nature of this website and gives airtime to anti vaxxers.

      • The military has not had to conform to mandated experimental vaccines. There have been several vaccines that were experimental, however the soldier is given the opportunity to refuse and just be excluded from the training location for which it was required. If you choose to take a vaccination that is experimental or abnormally high death ratio, you would be required to sign liability waiver paper work. If you felt pressure to receive such vaccination against your will, it was not legal but the military does use might to intimidate the youth and uneducated. The COVID Vaccine Mandate is completely different and is being institutionally pressured ILLEGALLY from the top.

        • Should be fully authorized by FDA within a few weeks. At that time you can get your panties out if a bunch. Cheers.

      • … and the left doesn’t do that at all. LMAO.

  • I believe this is draconian and a display of a descent into mental illness. Will it ever end? I don’t think so. Tell Jim Jones to leave the building.

  • I’m glad they want to keep our military healthy. You never know when we are bound for Tehran.

  • If this vaccine kills as many people as the censored professionals are saying within a two year time frame, the Chinese and NWO plan has worked to decapitate our military in time for an all out physical invasion of America. And people like “Greg” cheer it on. SMH

    • Yup. My doctor saved us. She is smart.

    • Talking to the hand again. This vaccine isn’t killing anybody. It’s saving people so says my medical doctor. She saved me and my wife. Who am I to argue with someone that’s smarter than me and off the chart smarter than you?

      • Where’s your evidence that they would have died without it?

      • You elevate yourself as a real hero. Good for you.

        Too bad your parents did not instill any actual values in you, now you can only find value in virtue signaling.

        Such a good boy.

        *pat pat*

    • I like Chinese food.

  • Love the Trolls on here. So patriotic now that China has installed a puppet they approve of, all of the sudden they love the US and all its people. What a joke. Ain’t no hate like lefty hate. The only thing the left hates more than freedom, are free people. Any time an opportunity arises for them to hold the gun of government to their neighbors head and compel them to do something they don’t like, they dance around with glee. It’s sick, really.

    Thank God these Trolls are the minority.

    • Lawrence, that’s the brain freeze you get for trying to pigeonhole real Alaskans like me…

      Lefties? Right-wing? This garbage didn’t start until the huge influx from the Lower 48 during the heyday of the pipeline. Sure, people called themselves Republicans and Democrats. Still, I remember my parents having house parties for Tony Knowles, Ted Stevens, and Arliss Sturgelewski. And my Mom was a member of George Wuerch’s ‘kitchen cabinet’ for community development. My parents were Dems.

      Party used to be secondary to doing what’s best for the community, state, and nation for most true Alaskans. We used to say, “We don’t give a Damn how they do it Outside.” However, the Pipeline brought a lot of ugly things along with the prosperity. Now that the prosperity is almost gone, it seems all we’re left with is the nasty, polarized “lefties/right-wingers” politics of Outside.

      Thanks.

      • That pretty much summed it up. Unfortunately many came from California Oregon and Washington. They couldn’t stand the likes of Governor Reagan. They were the Communists in the McCarthy era. They used to have to hide in the closet, and now they’re infesting Hollywood at will. Yes those type of people and their offspring are the ticks sucking the blood out of Alaska.

      • Those were great times. Small state, plenty of money, either grift or legit, to go around. I remember them too. However, Today’s leftists don’t want the sort of unity you describe. They want people under dominant forced coercion by their government, forcibly given a gene therapy that doesn’t stop transmission, and in our state, they want to take away our property (the PFD) to give to their friends in big business/big government and other special interests. THAT is the left of today. I didn’t create them. They are who they are. Look at the way they gleefully wish for people’s freedoms to be taken away, just on the comments section of this site. They way they cheer when someone is forced to take an experimental medicine they don’t want to. It’s sick. I would love for the return of those better days you describe, but they are coming back because today’s left, doesn’t want unity. They want hate, division, and a dominant central government, and they absolutely take joy in seeing people’s rights and freedoms taken away. I didn’t make them that way, so thanking me is a useless gesture, I would want them to be more open minded and freedom loving, but they aren’t, and wishing they were different doesn’t change it.

        • The cheering that you think you hear is the realization that another child or adult won’t die if they got the shot. It’s not about control. It’s about carring if people live or die. It’s about hospitals being full to capacity and people outside crying. Wondering why they didn’t get the shot why they listen to propaganda. That’s all it’s about. You lump a lot else in there like leftists wanting to run everything well they’ve been doing that for a long time and they will go on doing that. They are the cancer of society that will have to live with. People would much rather the hospitals be empty and nobody sick and no parent having to listen to the doctor trying to explain why their child can’t breathe and they’re never going to be able to breathe. That’s what I care about.

          • Oh, your signal is so virtuous.

            So many MSM talking points in one post.

            I bet you are paid to be here.

            Well, at least they are getting their money’s worth. It is a pity we see through your nonsense.

    • Republicans have always loved the American people. And we love them now. That’s why we don’t want them to get sick and die including you comrade.

  • I do believe that it is against the Nuremberg Code to force experimental treatments. I hope many appeal.
    As an aside, back in 1990 we were ‘highly encouraged’ to get the new Hep B vaccine. Of the 8 in my unit receiving it, 4 developed Hep C and one 28 year old soldier with two small children rapidly developed hepatic cancer and died. At least on of the others has cirrhosis from Hep C and is 100% VA disabled (I’ve lost track of the rest).
    Once improved and FDA approved, I took the vaccine.

    • AK, The Nuremberg Code is not law. It is the foundational document of modern international bioethics research. It was written in 1947. Since then, the United States has developed and adopted the following as the state of bioethics research evolved:

      BELMONT REPORT
      Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research developed by The National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research, 1979

      FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION
      (Guidance for Institutional Review Boards and Clinical Investigators)
      Good Clinical Practice in FDA-Regulated Clinical Trials (Regulations and Guidelines)

      HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, Office for Human Research Protections
      (Many documents)
      Title 45: Code of Federal Regulations, Part 46 (45 CFR 46)
      (“The Common Rule” – Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects)
      Health and Human Services, Office for Research Integrity (Policies and regulations).

      • Sophie, thanks for enlightening us by way of reference to reams of Federal Mumbo Jumbo , but can you answer one question please? What part of any CFR can violate your rights enumerated in the Constitution , specifically the Ninth Amendment? You see Sophie, I as an individual retain plenary rights to my Body. I want you to know that I value ninth amendment right and will not be forced into taking an experimental dose of who knows what. I will not attempt to stop you from taking any medication you deem needed either, after all it’s your body, not mine. It is a primal right Sophie. Oh, and please do not construe that we lay down our rights due to some “National Emergency”. This hyped up Covid thing kills less .05% of those infected.
        Hardly the Black Plague, and yes it is highly treatable.

    • No doubt mistakes have been made in the past. Agent Orange, giving speed to all our combat troops during world war II because the Germans were on the stuff and we had to stay as hopped up and crazy as they were. Don’t go to area 51 and open those cages. You Probably won’t like what you see.

    • You just said the right word. Experimental. The Nuremberg code talks about it repeatedly calling it an experiment. It’s not a mingola lobotomy. The experiment is over. Now if we would grab a bunch of homeless people off the streets back during the test time of the trials, and force them to take the shots then yes the Nuremberg code would prevail. The code also allows for the betterment of society. It’s just about as full of holes as Swiss cheese, but basically they can’t experiment on you if you don’t want to unless it’s what’s best for society. Given somebody a vaccine to save the country or the world might be a completely different story.

      • And yet the “vaccine” has worked only to allow those who are vaccinated to acquire, carry and contaminate more people. Sounds like an flop of an experiment or maybe that was the plan all along.

      • The only ‘vaccine’ we need is one that eliminates corruption from our government officials.

        As for the Pandemic, our immune system is robust (those who care for themselves) and we will get through this.

        Don’t be afraid. The big bad Covid is not coming to get you.

  • It is really very simple, why would you take an untested injection that has killed THOUSANDS in the U.S. to date ostensibly to guard from catching a virus that is has an over 99% survivability rate? Really? Oh, BTW, the shot offers no immunity from catching Covid.
    These are facts. Perhaps those pushing the mandatory Jabs should actually do some research before acting like an unruly mob of Apes trying to shame people into some dystopia conformity.

    • Your usual crock here Robert.

  • By the content of some of the comments, I think it’s time for some of you folks to look up and read the Nuremberg Code.

  • The vaccine is NOT a viral vaccine, it is a gene therapy, as it is named on the emeorgency application submitted to the FDA, There is NO way to vaccine against a coronavirus that has reservoir in other species such as birds, monkeys, swine, and other animals. It is just like the flu virus in that regard and that is why the flu shot is less than 62% effective. If I was in the military, I would be heading for the door. I am glad I am not a military contractor, because I wouldn’t be anymore. Why does the news media NOT ask why most of the the large outbreaks are in areas where large numbers of people have been vaccined? Just because you are vaccined, doesn’t mean you can’t carry and shed the virus like crazy. All they are doing is mass gain of function by giving this vaccine to people.

    • Just ordered hundreds of new ventilators. 2800 new cases here.

  • As it says in “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The  Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective  & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” by Rolf Hefti at www dot  CovidTruthBeKnown  dot com once propaganda and bribery of the public to take a Covid vaccine are exhausted to get them to do it the tyrannical globalist regime starts resorting to more coercive measures.

    The military, and similar institutions, are the first to feel that, then the rest of the unvaccinated public will get targeted for illegal anti-Nuremberg Code forced vaccination.

    Yet most folks still do not see the writing on the wall….

  • Both sides here are grasping at internet and media “facts” to justify their positions. However, only one side cares about individual freedoms. One side believes everything the government tells them to be true, while the other remains skeptical no matter what party is in power. One side has been brought to a state of fear which justifies their point of surrendered of everyone’s freedoms and tunnel vision, the other vocalizes that you have the freedom to vaccinate if you so choose to, but inform yourself with real facts and make an educated decision. The internet and media are not a good source for making wise decisions. What facts you think are facts may not be. We are surrounded by distortions of the truth to create a divided nation, on purpose for nefarious reasons. If you can’t get past the self righteous positions on every front being created to divide us and see it for what it is, there will be no return to individual freedoms.

    • Which is why I trust my doctor’s to give valid information. They are the skilled. The informed. The proven.

      • There are plenty of doctors who speak out against it too. Bottom line is you pick the source that justifies your fears. I don’t fear and choose to weigh the facts myself, unemotionally.

  • I wonder if the top rung of the Democrat elite have taken the vaccine? Has Obama, Bill Gates, George Soros, the Hollywood and sports elites? You never hear much or see photos. Has anyone heard of the Obamas getting vaccinated? I sure haven’t, no mentions, no publicity pics (BHO loves the limelight). I’m thinking they haven’t, and for good reason.

    • Of course they have. So have most on here but you don’t hear that either.

  • Pro tip for Forkner: You are allowed to post more than one paragraph in a single comment.

    • Nooooooo. Really? That all you got?

  • Thank you Tired of the Mumbo Jumbo.
