You can join the military without vaccines.
If you tell them at time of enlistment it's against your religion, or if you've never received a vaccine. You can waiver out.
If you've already enlisted you can try to get a waiver.

Just in case any one wants to join, or your kids want to.

My husband wanted to join the Navy, but then we found out I was pregnant with #3 and now he has too many dependents under the age of 18. :( That's good to know for anyone else wanting to join though!

Never heard that one! But have heard both mom AND dad can't be in the military if there is a minor involved? Not sure if it is true or not?

Not true. Just need a family care plan.

I think it depends on which branch. In the air force it is not allowed but in the army it is.

Don't have a link. I was told. I googled and found links saying you can waiver out if you do it at enlistment.
It said if they tell you there aren't any don't sign because its a lie

I don't know. It's just what we read online for eligibility for new enlistments.

i have heard of that before. But if you enlist w/o a waver, your stuck, there is no way of going back.

Yeah I'm just wondering how difficult they make it for you even with a waiver
