    Do we have to get the list of immunizations sent in the PTR package if we had not had it or will it be administered on I-day to cover up any gaps?

    I assume I am suppose to get them

    but

    How come I have read posts about a dozen shots on I-day?


    Also, will there be appointments revoked if the 15th deadline is missed?

    DS decided to send the immunization record by the due date* although some of the shots were missing.

    We tried. DS went to 2 different clinics and either of them were able to give DS Adult IPV nor Menactra or MENVEO. One even said they had those shots available when he called, but when we went there this morning, the clinic said that they ran out of shots. On page 6 of the Important Information for the Class of 2016, it says that USNA can give the Menactra/MENVEO shot on I-day.

    *the deadline per the green immunization record form (NHCLANNA 6230/7) is May 15, but per PTR checklist, due date is May 20.

    DS took PPD test and had MD fill out his immunization history and sent the green form along with PPD form (his clinic gave one to him and also had MD fill out the PPD reading on the green form), and Patient Registration Form today.

    DS decided to send the forms by the deadline although some of the shots were missing. He thinks he can get all of the missing shots on I-day.

    I don't think your appointment will be revoked if you don't send it by the deadline. But DS decided to send the green form today (tomorrow is the deadline) although he is missing some shots to meet the deadline just in case.

    Sorry I should have reviewed my post carefully before submitting them.
    DS was not able to receive 2 shots (Adult IPV and Menactra) since neither of the clinic he visited had those shots. He still sent the green form, PPD results, and Patient Registration Form today to meet the deadline. It is easy to have PPD done (it takes 48 to 72 hours to get the results). I would think as long as you get PPD done and send the 2 forms by May 20, you should be fine, but it is just my personal opinion. The instruction said health care provider (not you) can contact USNA's immunization clinic, so if you are worried, have your healthcare provider contact USNA clinic.
