Do REG Force and Reservists receive immunizations as a matter of deployment readiness? I just received my next Anthrax booster, of course I can‘t tell them I don‘t want it. :warstory:
Anthrax is a virus that mainly affects cattle, sheep, goats etc. So yes!!! just like a polio vaccine, you can get an anthrax vaccine.there‘s a vaccine for anthrax???
I don‘t have the little card anymore the only thing I have is the actual copy of the record from the original issuer. Will this be good enough?Originally posted by Pte Smiley:
[qb] I was in Borden this summer, and I had 11 needles shoved into me at various times...Just make sure you always have your immunization records on you, I was never told to bring them and they just re-gave me shots I had already had...not fun! [/qb]
I was under the (Mistaken?) impression that anthrax was a bacterial infection?Originally posted by cheechue:

Consider yourself lucky. We got YF during work up and that vaccination levels you for a day. That was probably the quietest night in the shacks for the entire summer.They also gave us a Yellow Fever card, but apparently we only have to have the shot if we are going on tour or something, because we never got the shots.
