I really don’t get it. We get so many random vaccines and live/work in buildings with asbestos and lead. This is the hill that these people want to die on?

When I got back from deployment they literally put us in barracks immediately next to the Ebola quarantine barracks 😂

I was recently a guest at my old unit's birthday ball. Most of their Marines that are refusing the vaccine are boots. Some of them were fresh out of SOI. They're pretty much just using the vaccine as an opportunity to get out early.

I know that's just one anecdote, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's the case for a good number of these vaccine refusers.

Think vaccine requirement is now officially part of recruiting efforts?

I’ve also read anecdotes about it being used as an opportunity to get out early. It’s not a bad discharge? If you hate your life in the Corps and want to get your start on the GI Bill then it probably wouldn’t seem like a bad idea if you were a 21 year old dumbass.

Similar things were happening pre-Iraq deployments for OIF 1 and 2. Anthrax shots were mandated. Lots of soldiers refused the shots and for "reasons" they were put on rear d and given the boot

I cannot imagine what would've happened pre Iraq or Afghanistan if I refused the anthrax or smallpox vaccine. It'd have to be awkward af and guaranteed ass kicking.

I'm still in the reserves, a SSgt and Major are both refusing (due to "personal reasons") and are getting the boot. The Major is eligible for retirement and they will not let him retire since he wouldn't be able to retire before the deadline. Kind of f'd up if you ask me, multiple combat deployments as an enlisted and officer, great guy, great Marine, great leader... And they're not giving any flexibility to him.

That's because it *is* screwed up. Nuance and reasonableness are out the door for both sides.

I ended my time in the Corps just before the first gulf war, and it was a “weird” time to be a Marine: No wars, conflicts, or major deployments other than training. I know many combat vets would probably have loved a quiet hitch like mine, but all things considered, I would have preferred a more active hitch. Quality of the Corps was at an all time low in the late 80’s and many were being let go early for many reasons. The anti vaxxers of the time used anthrax as their reason just before the gulf deployments, yet not a single one objected to the 20+ shots we all got on day 1 at PI

We have to empathize with their position. It’s still EUA and some knew ppl who were hurt from the anthrax vax. My under had a stroke shortly after he deployed from Iraq because of it… I say we allow ppl to make their own decisions.. moreover when I look back at it, I wonder what the heck they put in me. You’d think we’d want to be more informed if anything
