Pentagon Chief Says Covid Vaccinations Will Be Mandatory For US Military By September 15

US military covid vaccines

Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin said he will seek permission from President Biden to mandate Covid-19 vaccinations for all members of the military by the middle of September or when the vaccines get regulatory approval, whichever comes first.

In a memo to all members of the US military Austin said: “I will seek the president’s approval to make the vaccines mandatory no later than mid-September, or immediately upon their licensing by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), whichever comes first”

RT reports: “I will not hesitate to act sooner or recommend a different course to the President if l feel the need to do so. To defend this Nation, we need a healthy and ready force,” he added.

The three Covid-19 vaccines – made by Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson, respectively – recognized by the US government have been authorized for emergency use. Without full FDA approval, Austin would need a waiver from the White House to make them mandatory, which explains the five-week notice.

Monday’s memo comes on the heels of last week’s media speculation that Austin and the Biden administration were working on a vaccine mandate, framed in those very terms. Other media reports suggested that a FDA approval for Pfizer’s vaccine, which uses mRNA technology, could come in early September, with Moderna’s mRNA shots close behind. 

Once the mandate is in place, any member of the military who refuses the vaccine could be punished under the Uniform Code of Military Justice for failure to obey an order.


  1. I really think it would be wise for anyone who takes the killer Vax to at least make sure they have a will drawn up to leave their assets to those who will not take the Vax & also to have have someone to take care of them who is not Vaxed, should mad cow disease or other injury manifest, also have a “living will” to make sure they do not suffer extraordinarily with useless life-saving methods just designed to make the doctors richer.
    In the end the Banks will be taking back all the money and property/assets of the Vaxed families, just as they do in their other wars.
