The coronavirus pandemic is a national security threat and the Pentagon is considering adding COVID-19 vaccines to "the full list of requirements for military personnel," according to a statement late Thursday.

The Biden administration has not said it will require COVID-19 vaccines for federal workers and the military but will force those who are unvaccinated to take frequent tests and take additional steps to prevent infection.

The vaccines are still being administered under an Emergency Use Authorization, and have not been fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration, raising potential legal issues for the administration to make the jabs a requirement. But the president—facing slowing vaccination numbers and missing his goal of getting 70% of the country at least partially vaccinated by the Fourth of July—has recently come out more forceful for Americans to take the jab.
