I took my DS to our family doctor last week to get all the required vaccinations he needs before reporting to BCT, and our doctor only had the polio combination vaccine that's administered to infants. He said it wouldn't be a problem to give it to a teenager, but insurance wouldn't pay for it. I've called our health department and every pharmacy in town, and no one has the adult polio vaccination. Several places said they could order it, but it only comes in doses of 10, and they don't need the other nine doses. Has anyone else encountered this problem, and if so, do you have any suggestions?
