The fact of the matter is the White House staff has the freedom to choose whether or not to get the experimental COVID-19 vaccine, but members of our military do not. Neither do many federal workers, healthcare workers or hardworking American employees.
During a press conference, one reporter asked Press Secretary Jen Psaki, “Can you clarify, is the administration not mandating vaccines for White House staff?”
Psaki shot back, “no, we have not mandated it.”
The journalist asked the follow-up question, “and do you have a count or can you offer any confirmation to us on the percentage of employees who are vaccinated?”
Again, short tempered, Psaki responded, “I am not going to provide that. I will see if there’s more information to provide.”
Unfortunately, our servicemen and women have not been awarded the same freedoms as the White House staff. The Department of Defense will require all U.S. military troops to take the COVID-19 vaccine by September 15th.
The Associated Press reported “the deadline could be pushed up if the vaccine receives final FDA approval or infection rates continue to rise.”
Some soldiers have joined together and “are filing a lawsuit in court against the coming military vaccination mandate. Those listed on he lawsuit as defendants are Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Secretary of Health & Human Services Xavier Becerra, and Janet Woodcock, Acting Commissioner of he Food & Drug Administration” reports Becker News.
