Bamberg, Germany - PCS with Army and not vaxed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have any info on pcsing to Bamberg with two children one 3 and one 1 with no vax's? Any tips? Is there anything that you would vax for? I was looking at MMR but my concern is they want to do 2 shots within 28 days that just seems like a lot for such a harsh vaccine. Also scares me to do to my 17 month old little boy..... is there any others that you would consider? Is there any tips you can give me about the transition and the process of going? Will I be hassled? What is the best thing to say? religious reasons?

Germany doesn't require any vaccines, so the miltiary cannot make you get any shots at all. If you are worried about measles in Europe you can just go to any German doctor and get the measles only shot for your children and the military will never know. It costs very little since it's socialized medicine so if you have no insurance there are standard rates that apply (ca. 50 Euros for visit and then the shot runs at about 10-40 EUros, depending on which one you get).

The military can give you a religious exemption to all vaccines, but you cannot do some and not others. It's all or nothing. Past shots don't count, you might have turned religious recently, kwim? So I would claim a religious exemption and then privately do shots in Europe that I want without the military or any US registry ever knowing.
