Too true! DH had to get the anthrax series while a reservist. After the 3rd vaccine his upper arm swelled to twice the size with a golf ball lump to boot and we had to fight to get him exempt from future shots (a series of 5) because the reaciton would only get progressively worse. It took forever to get the exemption...Just a gentle reminder, it's helpful to keep in mind that DS will eventually be apart of the military. Now is the time to start adjusting what you would be open to or not, as I'm guessing sooner than later the vaccine will be a military requirement. Different branches are already making "incentives" for those that voluntarily receive the vaccine. While parents will always be able to give advice and have conversations, DS will become an adult member of the military and parent's will have less of an impact on decision-making.
