    If you went to public school, you should already have most of the shots that the military requires. Some of the other shots that the miltary requires aren't given to everyone, just to people going to certain parts of the world (anthrax, smallpox, etc). When I came in, I might have only needed one or two shots in basic.

    Also, there is nothing different about the way the military gives shots.

    When I went in you got all the shots again, you got so called "booster" shots

    After all the immunity given is for a limited duration

    Example: Tetanus is every 10 years

    Smallpox was every 6 years

    Typhoid was every year if in a Typhoid area

    And Cholera was every 6 months

    The military will give you so many shots that you'll be able to be dropped into the deepest regions of the most deadly diseases and still be as protected as medical science has figured out how to do. Getting shots before you go into the military is 100% unnecessary. They'll do it!

    Their shots, their dollar. No need for you to do so. The military will make sure you have all the shots you'll require.

    Not only can you, you'll be expected to, and should have had them well before you could sign up. You can't be anti-vax in the military. They're not going to listen to such nonsense. Your not being vaccinated would endanger the health of the entire unit, and the military in particular is not going to put up with such bullshit.
