Members of the US military voiced their refusal to take the Covid-19 vaccine in a video circulating on social media.
In a TikTok video produced Monday, several Marines stationed at an Army base are asked by a fellow Marine whether they will take the vaccine.
The response is a resounding “No.”
“Did you get the vaccine?” the man behind the camera asks one soldier.
“Fuck no, and I’m not, don’t got to get it, m***er f***er,” the marine angrily responds.
Nearly every other soldier questioned in the video gives a similar response.
The last person in the video answers, “Fuck no. What if I die?”
In February, Defense Department officials noted about one third of US military members were opting not to receive the vaccine.
NIAID head Anthony Fauci last month dubbed military personnel refusing to take the vaccine “part of the problem.”
“Because by getting infected, even though you may not know it, you may be inadvertently transmitting the infection to someone else, even though you have no symptoms,” Fauci said during a virtual town hall last month.
“In reality, like it or not, you’re propagating this outbreak. So instead of being part of the solution, you are innocently and inadvertently being part of the problem by not getting vaccinated.”
The vaccine is currently being offered to service members on a voluntary basis, however legislators are proposing making it mandatory.
As evidenced in the video, the military isn’t too enthusiastic about that idea.
