GOP Reps Call on DOD to End Vaccine Mandates

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

A group of nearly 50 GOP Representatives have sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin urging him to immediately suspend the COVID-19 vaccine mandate that he issued last August.  The mandate applies to all military service members, civilian workers and contractors.  The letter also calls for the reinstatement of service members discharged for not following the mandate.  The letter raises concerns about the current readiness levels of the military amidst the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine.
