The United States Navy under President Joe Biden is set to discharge all sailors who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccination.
If active duty Navy personnel fail to vaccinate themselves by November 28th, they will be “discharged with no lower than a general discharge under honorable conditions.”
USNI News reported:
All active-duty Navy personnel must be vaccinated by Nov. 28 or face separation, according to a Navy administrative message released Wednesday.
Any active-duty Navy service members who do not get fully vaccinated or do not have an approved or pending exemption will be processed for an honorable separation without involuntary separation, according to NAVADMIN 225/21, released by Vice Chief of Naval Operations Adm. William Lescher and Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. John Nowell.
Service members in the Ready Reserve Navy will need to be fully vaccinated by Dec. 28.
In order to meet the deadline, active duty members must receive their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, if receiving the two-shot Pfizer or Moderna version, by Nov. 14, according to a Thursday Navy news release. A person is not fully vaccinated until 14 days after receiving the second shot.
For members in the reserve, the deadline to receive the second shot is Dec. 14.
Those who are separated for refusing the vaccine will be discharged with no lower than a general discharge under honorable conditions, according to the Navy release.
President Biden doesn’t seem to care about weakening the United States military as hundreds of thousands of troops are not yet fully vaccinated and the November 28th deadline gets closer.
