Trump Says Coming Coronavirus Vaccine will be Administered by Military

The anti-vaxxer crowd is not going to like this one bit.

Even a quick glance at social media will demonstrate that Americans are hotly divided on the issue of this global pandemic.  In fact, there are a number of issues on which they are vehemently disagreeing with one another, not the least of which has to do with how best to defeat the scourge of COVID-19.

As it stands today, we have only social distancing as a weapon against the virus, and we’re hoping that the weeks that we’ve already been practicing this tactic have translated into a flattening of the curve.

The next evolution in this fight will surely involve a vaccine, but many Americans are wary of veering down the path of mandatory vaccinations.

President Donald Trump said in an interview Thursday he is already mobilizing the military to help distribute a coronavirus vaccine as soon as it is developed.

“Our military is now being mobilized so at the end of the year we’re going to be able to give it to a lot of people very, very rapidly,” the president said in an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, which aired on Thursday morning.

The president said that distributing the vaccine would be a “massive job” and that he would move quickly to get it distributed.

The military’s role is certainly being considered on account of the sheer scope and ability of the armed services, but there will no doubt be a number of anti-vaxxers who see things differently.
