Youngkin, Virginia Republican Congressmen Call on Defense Secretary Austin to Delay COVID-19 Vaccine
Facing a July 1 national deadline, Governor Glenn Youngkin and Virginia’s GOP congressmen
sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin on vaccine mandates. “[T]his directive will unnecessarily impact troop readiness, at a time when the Virginia National Guard has substantial deployments and as our nation enters hurricane season. These guardsmen deserve the opportunity to continue to serve, and we need them,” the letter states.
