I recently updated my Tetanus/Diphtheria immunity by getting a booster as I figure this will not be available if the SHTF. I certainly wouldn't want to die from lockjaw because I got a simple cut and didn't have my shot. The shot is good for 10 years.

Anybody else get a booster recently? How long has it been? Any other shots that anybody could suggest to get that are available to civilians?

Got mine last week when I burned my leg.
It is kind of funny. I saw this movie a while back. They thaw out this bronze age man. Somehow he gets loose and they look for him. Anyway this doctor says he must be military. His blood samples came back. He has anti-bodies to rabies, anthrax, cholera, smallpox, ex...
At the time I admired that.

M1a Owner, a way to get a useful series of vaccinations is to arrange a vacation to sub saharan africa. The series covers almost every disease known that has a vaccine. dmen

Thanks M1A_Owner I already read that, I found it rather interesting. I think I scared my sister into it with the pictures and reading her the syptoms of it, she winced at one of the pictures. I'm working on getting the parents to get a booster because they were both vacinated when they were kids.

SK89,

The scary thing is that there is no booster available to civilians right now. That's why I posted that article. But I also wanted to note that many people born AFTER 1972 HAVE RECEIVED THE VACCINE contrary to what the CDC says, I received one in 1977 as a very young child. You may be one of them. Check your upper arm at the ball of the shoulder for a round mark with several small pock like scars in it.

There is no way to receive the vaccine currently unless you are in the military or medical field that I know of.
