Rubio, Paul Demand Senate Repeal Military COVID-19 Vaccine … – Senator Marco Rubio

As of April 2022, approximately 3,400 members of our armed forces have been discharged from the U.S. military for refusing the COVID-19 vaccination, with tens of thousands more at risk of also being separated. At the same time, military recruitment is reportedly down 23 percent from annual targets, hitting an all-time low. 
U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rand Paul (R-KY), and colleagues sent a letter to Senate Republican leadership demanding the Senate to vote on an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023 to prohibit discharges from the Armed Forces solely because of COVID-19 vaccination status. The amendment would also reinstate service members already discharged, with back pay.
