Thousands of Airmen and Guardians Defy Services' Vaccine Order

Nearly 96% of all active-duty Air Force and Space Force members met the services' tight Nov. 2 deadline for being fully vaccinated against COVID-19, with an additional 1% receiving at least one dose.

But according to data released Wednesday by the Air Force, a total of 8,486 airmen and Guardians remain unvaccinated, including nearly 5,000 who have asked for a religious exemption; 2,753 who "haven't started the series" or had their vaccines properly entered into their records; and 800 who have outright refused the shots.
