I'm at the Navy Mobilization and Processing Center in Norfolk getting caught up on vaccinations before I go to Ft. Jackson and then to Afghanistan. As of today, the anthrax vaccine is still optional in the Navy but mandatory in the Army and Air Force. It's just a signature away from being mandatory in the Navy.
I decided to take the first dose. I figure if I'm going to a country in which the national sport involves a contest for a headless goat carcass, it couldn't hurt to have immunity even if you could rule out the risk of weaponized anthrax.
