As a child I had reacted adversely to the DTP vaccine, very basically: my immune system shutdown for several months and it was even longer before I bounced back fully. As a result, my parents ensured I remained clear of all other vaccines and I've had a relatively healthy childhood. I'm 20 now and wondering how my body is going to react to the full-course of vaccines they'll pump into my system at Raleigh. I discussed the issue with my parents before applying, they think that because I'm older (bigger, stronger, healthier, etc.) the reaction (if any) will be small. After the pre-joining brief today and discovering I'll be needing 6 different jabs, I'm a bit worried. Will they give me all the jabs at once? Surely that will just confuse the body as it tries making antibodies for 6+ different diseases? Is it possible to have them spread them out over the 9 weeks, since I wont even be serving at sea until next year? I'm going to try and get the BCG done before going to ease the load. Any help/advice would be appreciated.
