Biden mandating the pentagon to require troops to take the jab

The Pentagon announced that it is now ‘requiring’ that all service members show whether they have been vaccinated or not.
The announcement came after president Biden directed the Department of Defense to look into “how and when” the coronavirus vaccines will be added to the list of mandatory vaccinations for the military, and for every federal government employee and federal contractor to attest to their vaccination status.

Deputy Pentagon Press Secretary Jamal Brown said in a statement:
The Department of Defense is moving quickly to meet President Biden’s commitment to defeat COVID-19, and that includes being able to ensure every member of our civilian and military workforce is protected.

In accordance with the guidance the President issued today, all military and civilian DoD personnel will be asked to attest to their vaccination status. Personnel unable or unwilling to do that will be required to wear a mask, physically distance, comply with a regular testing requirement and be subject to official travel restrictions.

President Biden said:
Our men and women in uniform who protect this country from grave threats should be protected as much as possible from getting COVID-19. I think this is particularly important because our troops serve in places throughout the world, many where vaccination rates are low and disease is prevalent.

The pentagon will consult with medical professionals and the Joint chiefs of Staff to determine when to add the coronavirus vaccines to the list of required vaccines to the “full list of requirements for military personnel.” Said Brown.

According to a recent Atlantic article, fewer than 70 percent of active-duty troops had received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine as of June 30, but the percentage was much smaller when National Guard and Reserve components were included — 51 percent.

The article listed one reason for the percentage:
One practical reason that vaccinations in the military lag the general population is that service members are younger and healthier. Across the country, young adults, who have a relatively low risk of death from serious disease, have substantially lower vaccination rates than older adults. The national median age is about 38. Enlisted men and women in the U.S. military as a whole are, on average, 27. The average age of even officers in the U.S. military is 34.5.

When speaking on the issue Biden reiterated what many in the democratic party and liberal left have wanted for a while nationwide which is to “impose” “mandatory” vaccinations upon people taking away their right to choose for themselves.
President Biden came out to say, “It’s time to impose requirements on key groups to make sure they’re vaccinated”
