**PER NHQ/REGS- A FLU SHOT IS REQUIRED**​  A flu shot should be obtained at least six weeks prior to training for full effect


MEDICATION PROCEDURES


*** THE TRAINING SITE IS OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WOODS. THERE IS A FIRE STATION CLOSE, WITH PARAMEDICS, BUT THE  CLOSEST HOSPITAL IS ABOUT 45 MINUTES AWAY**


If your cadet will be on any medication during the training, the procedures below MUST be followed, whether the medication is over-the-counter (OTC) OR a prescription (RX)

Having everything ready as listed below will decrease delays in the check-in process






  • a medical supplemental form MUST be completed (see the Recruit Training tab for the form)
  • the form MUST be uploaded into Magellan by the unit POC  SOONEST so it can be reviewed by the Medical Personnel prior to the start of training
  • for OTC meds, the form MUST be signed by the parent AND the unit CO
  • for RX meds, the form MUST be signed by the parent, the prescribing DR AND the unit CO
  • ALL medication should be in the ORIGINAL container/pill bottle
  • ONLY send the amount of medication needed for the training
  • DO NOT mix medications all in one bottle- this will not be accepted
  • if your cadet is currently prescribed an inhaler, they MUST bring it to training, even if they haven't had to use it in a while- it must be kept on their person at all times
  • if your cadet has an epi-pen, they MUST BRING TWO (2) to training, one to be kept with them at all times, the other-as a back up- will be with the Medical Personnel
  • ​medications will be dispensed before chow, if the medication is to be taken after the meal, then the cadet should hold it by their food tray until they have eaten and then take it
  • taking the medication will be the CADET'S responsibility; they will need to make sure they are in the medication line prior to chow to pick up their medication each time
  • NO ONE can force anyone to take medication, if your cadet chooses not to take their medication, that is their choice and it will be notated and initialed by the cadet indicating that they have refused their dosage 
  • while they will be on call for emergencies during the training 24/7, the Medical Personnel will not be chasing down any cadet to give them their medication; we have ONE Medical Personnel who will be in the same place every day at each chow, so the cadets, staff cadet and adults will all know the procedure
  • if your cadet is feeling ill, or if they have been injured, they need to speak up and follow their chain of command; we cannot fix what we do not know about
