Cadets who refuse the COVID vaccine may not be allowed to graduate from the Air Force Academy.

The United States Department of Defense (DoD) established a mandate for mandatory vaccinations for service members one year ago.

According to the authorities of the Air Force, there is a possibility that four students at the Air Force Academy will not graduate or be commissioned as military officers this month, and they may be required to repay thousands of dollars in tuition. They did not want to protect themselves against the coronavirus by being vaccinated.


The United States Air Force Academy is the only military academy that has implemented disciplinary measures for students who have not received the influenza vaccination. According to statements made by both the Army and the Navy, senior members of either service will not be denied the opportunity to graduate this month simply because of their vaccination history.
