A twisted way to get our troops to get the covid vaccine is a morale buster because it punishes anyone who doesn’t get the covid vaccine. Freedom to refuse the vaccine is limited if the troops feel threatened with punishment, like not seeing their loved ones.
Fort Campbell’s commander is warning unvaccinated troops they will not be able to travel freely over the summer and will be considered non-deployable until they get the covid vaccine. Even though getting the vaccine is optional because it has emergency approval from the FDA, troops will be penalized if they aren’t vaccinated. Even though most soldiers had reported they would be vaccinated, fewer and fewer soldiers are getting the covid vaccine.
Maj. Gen. JP McGee recently held a virtual town hall where he said:
“If you are an unvaccinated soldier, you should not consider it business as usual as you start making plans with your family. You will have to overcome a certain level to take leave.”
McGee said he knows the decision will be “unpopular” and said the decision has not been finalized.
Vaccinated will be able to travel as usual…
Hundreds of replies to the announcement were mostly angry replies slamming the policy. Many people said they refuse to get a shot, and some said they have religious objections.
Becca Normand commented:
“You should not be able to blackmail someone into getting the vaccine just so they can live their lives. You say it’s our right to choose not to take the vaccine, but you subconsciously punish those who choose not to take it. So we are forced to do it in order to have what little freedom we are given. This is not right.”
Will this be the new way to bribe people to get vaccinated?
