The Pentagon has released some interesting data.
According to the Pentagon one-third of U.S. troops have refused to take a COVID-19 vaccine.
Maj. Gen. Jeff Taliaferro was quoted saying that “acceptance rates are somewhere in the two-thirds territory”.
I wonder when the one-third who opted to not take the vaccine will be forced to take it.
Hopefully never but with Biden slinging out executive orders every day it could be possible.
“Our initial look—and this is of course very early data—is acceptance rates are somewhere in the two-thirds territory,” said Maj. Gen. Jeff Taliaferro.

The Epoch Times reported the story, see what they had to share:
About one-third of U.S. military troops have turned down the vaccine for the CCP virus, or the novel coronavirus, said the Pentagon on Wednesday.
Maj. Gen. Jeff Taliaferro, a top official in the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the military has a two-thirds acceptance rate for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccine.
“Our initial look—and this is of course very early data—is acceptance rates are somewhere in the two-thirds territory,” Taliaferro said in a hearing. “And of course, it varies by different groups.”
Maj. Gen. Steven Nordhaus, the head of operations for the National Guard Bureau, told the panel that the National Guard had an acceptance rate of “two-thirds to 70 percent,” mirroring the military at large.
Specifically, of about 916,000 doses administered to Department of Defense (DOD) personnel, 359,000 have received at least one dose, while 147,000 are fully vaccinated, said Bob Salesses, who is acting defense secretary for homeland defense and global security, according to the Military Times.

Politico covered the story too:
Approximately one-third of troops have declined to take the coronavirus vaccine so far, Pentagon officials told the House Armed Services Committee on Wednesday.
Maj. Gen. Jeff Taliaferro, the vice director of operations for the Joint Staff, said the military has a two-thirds acceptance rate for the vaccine, meaning as much as a third isn’t taking it. The vaccine is not yet mandatory for service members.
“Our initial look — and this is of course very early data — is acceptance rates are somewhere in the two-thirds territory,” Taliaferro told the panel’s top Republican, Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama. “And of course it varies by different groups.”

Wow, the military certainly has changed. I was never given a choice when I was serving. Of course, that was 30 years ago, but who’s counting.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
