    Default Nearly 40% of Marines have declined Covid-19 vaccine

    Washington (CNN) Nearly 40% of US Marines are declining Covid-19 vaccinations, according to data provided to CNN on Friday by the service, the first branch to disclose service-wide numbers on acceptance and declination.

    As of Thursday, approximately 75,500 Marines have received vaccines, including fully vaccinated and partially vaccinated service men and women. About 48,000 Marines have chosen not to receive vaccines, for a declination rate of 38.9%.
    CNN has reached out to the other services for acceptance and declination rates.

    The corresponding acceptance rate for vaccinations among Marines -- 61.1% -- is not far off the military estimate of two-thirds, or about 66%.

    Another 102,000 Marines have not yet been offered the vaccines. The total number of Marines includes active-duty, reserves and Individual Mobilization Augmentee Marines.

    The declination rate at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, one of the prominent Marine Corps bases, was far higher, at 57%, according to another set of data provided to CNN. Of 26,400 Marines who have been offered vaccinations, 15,100 have chosen not to receive them, a number that includes both II Marine Expeditionary Force and Marine Corps Installation East -- Camp Lejeune. Another 11,500 active-duty Marines are scheduled to be offered the vaccines.

    When I visited my kid last weekend, he expressed that they were having similar problems where he's stationed in the Army. They've made it difficult to get the vaccine, and they aren't doing a good job of selling the benefit. He's heard talk that it may become mandatory.

    Are you a virology denier?

    Why should ridiculously healthy young men get vaccinated against a virus that poses practically no risk to them. And if they should happen to get it, it’s ridiculously probable they’ll get it, recover, then add to our herd immunity numbers.

    you are just a troll
    Why Biden? Because Fuck You that's why. Barack Obama has a Grammy, an Emmy, a Nobel Prize, 2 terms as President and a Twitter account.

    Donald Trump has 2 impeachments.

    Did everyone notice that the hojo secdef is going to "weed out" subversive elements in the military?

    Looks to me like the USMC will really, really be looking for a lot of "a few GOOD men" after they purge all those subversive, non-compliant, miscreant plague vaccine hold-outs.

    Spread which allows the virus to mutate and create a more dangerous strain

    Hmmmmmmmm... Whatever happened to being in control of your own body and having the right to keep medical options between the person and their doctor ? HIPAA anyone?

    Other kinds of vaccinations are mandatory in the military, they should just make this one as well.

    Refuse?

    They are NOT to follow orders from Biden faithfully,...nor from anyone else including commanding officers. They are to only follow LAWFUL orders. Not surprising a Nazi like yourself doesnt understand the difference.

    Until the vax is lawfully made mandatory...." good luck with THAT btw" the Marines or anyone else are well within their rights to decline.

    That is in general how the military works. Right now, the government is being very nice about the Covid-19 vaccine, and hoping that enough people will volunteer. This might not be what the future brings.
