The establishment is wasting no time announcing vaccine mandates in the military and in New York and California minutes after the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval of the COVID mRNA injection.
Just minutes after the FDA’s announcement, Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby announced Monday that the military is now requiring soldiers to get the jab under threat of court martial. “Now that the Pfizer vaccine has been approved, the Defense Department is prepared to issue new guidance requiring all service members to be vaccinated,” Kirby told reporters.

New York announced the state’s Department of Education is also requiring it’s nearly 150,000 employees and all students to get the shot with no opt-out option.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a similar requirement for city workers, making it the first city to issue a flat-out vaccine mandate.
“Today, the New York City Department of Health will be issuing an order requiring all staff in the New York City Public Schools to be vaccinated,” de Blasio said. “This will require that all staff of every kind, principles, teachers, custodians, food service, you name it, needs to have at least one dose by Sept. 27.”
