    Hey all

    Accepted candidates must fill out their immunizations file and get missing immunizations. If it is not possible to get these immunizations, will West Point issue any missing vaccines? Or must we get all of the immunizations before R-day? Thanks!

    You've got four months to get what they require and I believe they spell out very clearly what they want. I can't say one way or another whether they would issue those or not, but unless you've got an awfully good powerful reason not to get those in all that time allotted to you now, and they've told you to get 'em , I'm not sure I'd play dice with that on the if come.

    Some of the immunizations are not given until after 18th bday, so those not 18 get them at WP. Some don't have the means to pay for the immunizations, so they don't get them. They get needles on Rday. If you can figure out how to get your shots before you get there, Rday is less painful. I cannot imagine doing everything that day full of new anti-bodies...especially the ones that cause your arm to be really sore....or worse, your arse.
