The Marine Corps said Thursday that it has granted the military’s first religious exemptions to its COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
In an emailed statement, the Marines said it granted two of the 3,212 requests for religious exemptions that it has processed. The service has received 3,350 religious accommodation requests in total.
Capt. Andrew Wood, a spokesman for the Marines, declined to provide specifics on the two requests due to privacy concerns when asked by The Hill.
