It is a component of your readiness and, like your current physical, failure to comply with keeping your immunizations up to date when the resources are available--which they can easily be shown to be--is basically a failure top maintain physical readiness. Ergo consequences. Unless someone reports you to your command, however, or you bring about attention by openly refusing immunization, you will probably escape detection for a long time.Simple question. Just wondering if there is a procedure for this.
Flumist or flu shot? The flu shot can't give you URI sx. Bad luck or maybe a weak-minded person getting sick from a placebo effect . Flumist gives me some nasal congestion for a day or too. I also try to get the injection.Bummer. I was hoping there was some previous condition I could say I had. I get sick 1-2 days after the flu shot every time. I got it Monday and I am now sick as a dog. The last time was 2003 (couldn't dodge the bullet that year). Same thing happened. Each year in between-no flu shot and made it through the entire season without so much as a sniffle.
I just told the E2 to give me the shot.Find a way to convince them that you work with immunocompromised patients. Say you work in the ICU a lot or something. The immunologists at my MTF won't give the Flumist to anyone that works regularly in the ICU since it's just attenuated.
My civilian med center uses both, you still get a choice. However, the nurses gave me a hard time about choosing the shot over the mist...in the army I was always able to make some kind of excuse as to why I needed the shot instead of the mist.I got really sick immediately after taking the flu mist a while back so I try to stick to the shot too. I haven't seen the flu mist as a civilian yet. My medical center uses the shot.
I told them I went into anaphylaxis with the mist, but im a bad liar and wound up giving in.Tell them you had Guillian Barre last time you got the flu shot.
I've never understood the wisdom teeth thing. A buddy of mine just was forced to have his removed after 12 years on AD. No dentist has ever mentioned mine and I just don't bring it up.I told them I went into anaphylaxis with the mist, but im a bad liar and wound up giving in.
I am still trying to think of something that will prevent them from pulling my already erupted wisdome teeth...ideas? I thought about saying that several of my immediate relatives died while under anesthesia, but then they will just do it while I am awake.
