Breitbart News reports that Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, blasting him for discharging service members who have not obeyed his “ambiguous” vaccine mandate.
In October, Johnson wrote that he sent a letter to Austin about his August 24 vaccine mandate, noting that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) admitted there is an insufficient “approved supply of Comirnaty, the only fully-licensed vaccine.” Johnson demanded to know, given this limited supply, how Austin will make service members comply with the vaccine mandate.
“Despite this lack of clarity, DoD has reportedly begun discharging service members ‘for not obeying orders to get vaccinated,’” Johnson wrote. “Reports indicate that on December 13, 2021, the Air Force discharged 27 service members for noncompliance with the DoD’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate. An Air Force spokeswoman stated that these 27 individuals were the first active- duty Air Force Members to be discharged over the Pentagon’s vaccination requirements for military members.’ The discharge classification of these 27 veterans is uncertain, as is their eligibility for veteran benefits.
“Despite my and other concerned individuals’ attempts to get clarity about your COVID- 19 vaccine mandate, you have ignored our requests for information, and instead have allowed DoD to discharge service members for not obeying your ambiguous mandate,” Johnson added.
Now, Sen. Johnson demands that Austin explain:
Johnson has said that every person has the “right-to-choose” regarding whether they should take coronavirus vaccines.
