Hundreds of thousands of U.S. military members are not yet fully vaccinated for COVID-19 as the different branch’s deadlines for vaccination near.
According to a report Monday in The Washington Post, many of the nation’s 2.1 million military personnel have not yet received a COVID-19 vaccination, though the vaccine deadline of Nov. 28 for active Navy and Marine personnel is quickly approaching.
According to the report, “90 percent of the active-duty Navy is fully vaccinated, whereas just 72 percent of the Marine Corps is, the data shows, even though both services share a Nov. 28 deadline.”
“In the Air Force, more than 60,000 personnel have just three weeks to meet the Defense Department’s most ambitious deadline,” it added. The Air Force vaccination deadline is Nov.
