"The President will announce that he is tasking the Department of Defense to study how and when they will add COVID-19 vaccinations to the list of required vaccinations for military personnel," the statement said.

As noted, "this is especially important, given that the US military serves around the world, including in countries where vaccination rates are low."

Earlier it was reported that the authorities of New York from Friday, July 30, will begin to pay $ 100 to each citizen who receives the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
