Pentagon pauses plan to offer Guantanamo Bay detainees coronavirus vaccines
The Pentagon stopped a controversial plan to offer detainees at Guantanamo Bay access to COVID-19 vaccines.
“No Guantanamo detainees have been vaccinated. We’re pausing the plan to move forward, as we review force protection protocols. We remain committed to our obligations to keep our troops safe,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said in a tweet Saturday.
