Alleged 9/11 mastermind, Gitmo detainees to start getting COVID vaccines

The Department of Defense has confirmed that an order has been signed to offer COVID-19 vaccines to Guantanamo Bay detainees and prisoners, including the alleged conspirators behind the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Injections could be given to prisoners in the next week, report Ebony Bowden, Carl Campanile and Susan Edelman for the NY Post.

As thousands of rescue and recovery workers under age 65 are ineligible for vaccines, despite being at elevated risk from COVID-19, this announcement has caused pain in the September 11th community.
