(CNN)One-third of US military service members eligible to receive a Covid-19 vaccination have opted not to, defense officials said Monday as they announced the Department of Defense is nearing 1 million vaccinations delivered. 
Cautioning that it’s still “very early data,” Maj. Gen. Jeff Taliaferro, vice director of operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the House Armed Services Committee Wednesday, “The vaccine is the right thing to do, it’s clearly safe for service members.” 
The percentage of those who have decided not to receive a vaccine mirrors the acceptance rate across the United States, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said Wednesday. 
The one-third estimate is the first time that the department has said publicly how many service members have declined to be vaccinated.
