Defense Department officials in charge of the coronavirus response briefed reporters on the state of vaccinations in the military and the FEMA request for active military to assist in the distribution efforts. Several reporters pressed the officials on current numbers of troops infected with the virus and the number of those declining vaccinations. Brigadier General Paul Friedrichs, who serves as the Joint Chiefs of Staff Surgeon, stressed that vaccinations were “voluntary.” Following their remarks, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby fielded questions from reporters on a range of defense issues, including the state of negotiations with the Taliban, the future of U.S. troop presence in Germany, and understanding the scope and severity of domestic extremist views in the military. close
