“The Marine Corps has separated 206 Marines for not getting the COVID-19 vaccine,” the military branch announced Thursday.
“Active-duty Marines had a deadline to get fully vaccinated by Nov. 28, while for reservists, the deadline was Dec. 28,” The Epoch Times reported.
“By the deadline, 95 percent of all active-duty Marines had received at least one dose of the vaccine, while 86 percent of the Reserve force had received the first shot.”
That means around 8,000 active-duty Marines and 5,000 Marine reserve personnel may face separation for refusing to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
“The Marine Corps is still tracking 1,007 approved administrative or medical exemptions,” Capt. Andrew Wood, a Marine Corps spokesman, said in a statement to news outlets.
The Marine Corps has denied 3,115 of 3,247 religious exemption applications received. The rest are still being processed, according to the statement.
Some of the Marines that refuse vaccines over to personal reasons are calling this “a political purge.”
“There’s something fundamentally wrong at this point with our nation’s leadership,” a major with more than 17 years of active service told Fox News on the condition of anonymity. “We are facing an unconstitutional edict that I think is very targeted as a political purge, taking out some of the best and brightest soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and guardians from the Space Force.”
