What Happens If Servicemembers Refuse To Get Vaccinated?

Don King, the owner of King Military Law, says his team receives calls from a non-vaccinated people about 3 times a week. 

You can file a proceeding, but it’s unlikely to succeed, King said. Then can you get out? The answer to that question is that it depends on how the DOD (US Department of Defense) wants to deal with this. If you just want to release people who don’t want to be vaccinated, give them honorable discharge and send them home, thats the most likely scenario. This depends on the number of people and whether the Pentagon can catch up with it. However, the Pentagon has the right to prosecute people for violating illegal orders under the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice).
