Thousands of US soldiers have flatly refused to be vaccinated against coronavirus.
During a briefing to the US Congress, Brigadier General Edward Bailey, a surgeon at the Armed Forces Command, said that in some units of the army, only 30% of personnel agreed to be vaccinated, while in other units. The number is somewhere between 50% and 70%.
Edward Bailey also said the number of soldiers agreeing to the coronavirus vaccine, but the quantity was not as high as we had hoped, What I have heard most from the officials is that when the army has given them the opportunity to choose to vaccinate as your puepose , my decision is not to vaccinate myself but We are trying to educate and persuade vaccinators to get vaccinated.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said in a press briefing that the military is part of the American people, so there is a tendency in the military not to vaccinate. The rate of acceptance of the corona vaccine in the military is the same as that of the general population.
