Vaccine Shots at OCS

Candidate Q:

I do not have any vaccines except a tetanus shot. My question is: do you recommend getting as many shots as possible before shipping to OCS? How bad would it be to just get them all during the medical in-processing? My problem is that they are expensive and I am running out of time. Thanks very much for your help.

A:

Do not worry about the shots. You will get whatever you need at OCS and TBS. Why pay for them ahead of time? They will be done during in-processing before the stress and PT begin. You won’t be alone if any of them cause discomfort.

Bottom Line: No need to get shots ahead of time.

  1. I got them all at OCS because they lost my shot records. After 7 shots and getting my blood drawn, I passed out. I didn’t have any problems with PT after that though.
