Army General Gus Perna was two months from retirement in May when Donald Trump asked him to head up Operation Warp Speed, which aims to get 300 million Americans vaccinated for COVID-19. But now, the general fears Americans won’t be willing to take the vaccine.
A recent video from CBS’ 60 Minutes shows hundreds of vials of a vaccine being stockpiled ahead of its approval by the FDA. Far too many delusionally believe that the military won’t be involved and that somehow this nefarious plan to innoculate the globe wasn’t drummed up under Donald Trump. Nothing can be further from the truth:
Make preparations as necessary if you intend to refuse this vaccine when the military comes around. It’s coming and it’ll be soon.
The general in charge of the government’s effort to get a COVID vaccine to 300 million Americans says his worst nightmare is, “we get vaccines to the American people, and they don’t take them. Shame on us.” https://t.co/78gm8Ahgc3 pic.twitter.com/s6FuBnBgSq

A Pew Research poll conducted in September found about half of US adults (51 percent) wouldn’t get a COVID-19 vaccine should one be available today. In May the figure was 72 percent, according to the DailyMail.
Those who say they would not be happy to get the injection also runs roughly along party political lines with less than half of Republicans (47%) saying they would take the jab but with 81% of Democrats ready to line up to be inoculated, according to the poll by Gallup. –DailyMail
He said the two scenarios believed to be likely were the approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of a vaccine developed by Pfizer, followed by approval of another from Moderna. Once the FDA gives the green light, the vials of the vaccine will start rolling out – with most states planning on giving the first doses to healthcare workers and frontline service employees.
The Pfizer vaccine requires two doses and could be available as soon as this month. Along with it will come a huge propaganda push to try to get everyone to take the shot.
