Republicans Win Massive Vaccine Battle

Congressional Democrats are about to hand Republicans an important victory as they are planning on adding language in the defense funding bill which would repeal the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all personnel.

The Daily Mail reports that the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is going to be following a directive that will effectively end the mandate. However, those who have previously been dismissed for refusal of the vaccine are not going to be allowed to return to active duty. Still, they may be eligible for some compensation for the consequences they faced due to their decision.

The bill is going to be released on Wednesday and will then be voted on by the end of the week.

Republicans have been outspoken regarding their opposition to a mandate from the very start. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has maintained that he wanted to keep the military’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate as a way of helping protect troop’s health.

On Saturday he told people that in the United States of America alone the virus led to one million lives being lost and that this mandate is what has helped keep people healthy. Austin noted that not only was he the one to order the mandate, but he would continue to support troops being vaccinated.
