  • vaccinations prior to reception

    Hi, im shipping off the BCT shortly and was wondering if it possible to take care of at least some of the shots beforehand. i found this List and wondering is the information is accurate. My recruiter told me he never even heard of someone doing their shots before BCT so not much help there... Thanks!

    Re: vaccinations prior to reception

    There's not going to be much (if any) of an advantage to doing this. I got shots at my RSP unit one month prior to shipping, and even with that recorded in my medical file they still gave me some of the same ones again at BCT.

    I can't say for certain, but given my military record was ignored I don't think a civilian shot record is going to hold much weight either. It may get you out a shot or two, but you're most likely not going to escape the "peanutbutter shot" and so forth. You'll get other shots during BCT also whenever you go back for your additional issue (dress uniform).
