Vaccines In The Military

When you enter the military your first health exam in basic training involves getting shots in both arms of all available vaccines for Americans. If you are going to deploy overseas, you get all available vaccines for your destination country. If you are Air Force Combat Air Crew with world-wide status you get all available vaccines in the world. I was on world-wide status as a Combat Air Crew member. There is no option to refuse, the vaccines are not a suggestion, they are an order and refusing is insubordination and a quick dishonorable discharge. If you are allergic to a vaccine, you will either lose your job and get some menial job until you are discharged ‘for the good of the service’ or possibly receive a medical discharge and pitiful pension.
