Thursday is the deadline for members of the Army National Guard to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Up to 40,000 guard members could be forced out of the service if they don’t get vaccinated for COVID-19 by Thursday.

The National Guard says it is still working with service members who have reservations about getting vaccinated.

As many as 600 members of the Minnesota Army and Air National Guard still haven’t been vaccinated.
