Service members will be forced to to get the COVID-19 emergency use vaccine by the U.S. military by mid-September Pentagon officials stated Monday. The requirement is endorsed by President Joe Biden, according to the Associated Press.

A memo distributed to all troops,” top Pentagon leaders said the vaccine is a necessary step to maintain military readiness,” stated the AP.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin had hinted at this move in recent months, he stated that the deadline could be accelerated if the vaccine receives final FDA approval or infection rates continue to rise.

“I will seek the president’s approval to make the vaccines mandatory no later than mid-September, or immediately upon” licensure by the Food and Drug Administration “whichever comes first,” Austin said in his memo, warning them to prepare for the requirement.
