A federal judge granted a preliminary injunction stopping the Navy from acting against 35 sailors for refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19 because of religious reasons. U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor wrote that the group of sailors, who sued the government in November, have a right on religious and First Amendment grounds to refuse the vaccination order. Not one of the thousands of religious exemption requests from soldiers has been granted by the military.
