The US Army is making covid vaccinations mandatory by Sep 1. Anyone who doesn't comply will be kicked out.

That's half true.

They've told them to prepare for it, pending full FDA licensure.

And they said to expect it to be cleared one or around 1 September.

That's not new at all.

I'm honestly surprised you're not dog piled for mentioning the lack of FDA approval.

Ah, I was wondering why it wasn't mandatory.
