Here is the situation...
You have filed for a religious exemption not to take the vaccine.
You find out you are going to be separated in less than three months but are then mandated to take the flu shot.
Do you trust the government to give you the right shot?
If you are former Maine National Guard Specialist Mathew Bouchard, that answer would be no.
That was the exact situation that Bouchard found himself in.
He filled out his paperwork, stood in the flu line, but he was given the vaccine instead.
He is far from the only one that this happened to, yet the military says this was nothing but an unfortunate accident.
Nobody believes them, though, because we know commanders are under pressure to have troops vaccinated.
If they have bad numbers, their fitness reports reflect that, so there is motivation to deceive these troops.
The Maine National Guard responded, "The Maine National Guard has not, and would never purposefully administer a COVID vaccine in place of an influenza vaccine.
"A very small number of service members were accidentally given a COVID vaccine several months ago during a clinic for service members where both shots were being administered.
"Those involved were informed as soon as the error was made known, the incident was investigated, and protocols were adjusted appropriately to ensure the same mistake was not made again.
"The Maine National Guard fully supports service members submitting for religious accommodation exceptions for any vaccination and has forwarded dozens of COVID religious accommodation requests to the next higher level for review.
"Plans for including accommodations have been a part of all DoD level and state level vaccination efforts."
It should not happen once, let alone "several" times.
You tell me... do you believe the Guard, or do you think this was done on purpose?
