40,000 members of the National Guard and 22,000 soldiers of the Reserve are barred from participating in their military duties because they refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine.


“Soldiers who refuse the vaccination order without an approved or pending exemption request are subject to adverse administrative actions, including flags, bars to service, and official reprimands,” reported citing an army spokesperson’s statement.

According to authorities from the National Guard who spoke with CBS News, 14,000 of the more than 40,000 members of the Guard who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 have said that they have no plans to obtain the vaccination in the future.”
