Description or narrative

This article states that if young Latter-Day Saints missionaries are to leave the United States, they should get the COVID-19 vaccine. If they do not comply with receiving the vaccine, they will instead be given a mission location within the United States. Mission medical coordinators have been observing COVID-19 vaccine availability for missionaries in hopes that they can go on missions sooner rather than later.
