Title

Vaccination Records for a Vietnam Soldier

Subject

War and Vietnam War Documents, Vaccination Record

Description

Original vaccination records for Vietnam veteran Jimmy Ray White. Jimmy, originally from Kearney, Nebraska, was father to Andy White and served in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War. Jimmy passed away in 2004, the same year as this case, after extensive chemotherapy and a long illness.

This original booklet contains extensive, detailed information about the required vaccinations for each Vietnam soldier. These included, but were not limited to, Typhoid, Polio, Tetnis, and the Flu. Many Vietnam Veterans are still suffering from various side effects of these particular vaccine administrations, such as Hepatitis C, many of which resulted from unsanitary administration equipment and areas.
