Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin is reportedly expected to announce on Friday a mandatory vaccine policy for all active-duty forces in the U.S. military.
The directive for all 1.3 million service members to get shots in their arms comes one day after Joe Biden urged all federal employees to get vaccinated, Fox News reported.
As reported by Fox News:
Austin will make his recommendation to the White House tomorrow, and the official announcement is expected Friday.
The decision comes as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported a more than 64 percent spike in coronavirus cases nationwide over the last seven days. The New York Times was first to report the story.
Following the announcement of a mandatory vaccine policy for all active-duty forces in the U.S. military, Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers (R) reacted, blasting “woke Communist” Lloyd Austin, recommending that the Secretary of Defense “needs to go”.
“By forcing our military to vaccinate the franken-jab, #SleepyJoe is doing to them what they are fighting to defend against – tyranny around the world,” State Senator Rogers wrote in a tweet on Wednesday.
“And that joke of a Secretary of Defense is nothing more than a woke Communist. He needs to go,” she urged.
