I'm sure you'll all find this interesting.

I'm awaiting the results of a Medical Evaluation Board that was started a little over 2 years ago in relation to my reaction to the anthrax shots. The reason I needed the MEB was to determine whether or not I would need a permanent waiver for the shot and to determine whether I am fit to continue my military service. I had heard nothing until a month ago, when the individual handling my case emailed me to tell me that now, military members will not be required to have a waiver to not receive the anthrax shot if they have had an adverse reaction.

Then I get an email last week saying that anthrax shots are resuming, on a voluntary basis for now, but will become mandatory once again in the near future.

Sounds like if you've already had a reaction and documented it, they may not need you to continue as a guinea pig for future shots. At least not for now...Rolling Eyes

I hope you have hired legal Council to assist you through your MEB process?

celiac,

Sorry for the long delay in replying... I also could not find that link.. it's over a year old so they must have archived it?
