    Hello everyone, just curious what week 1 medical is like? I've read plenty of threads that covered it but what is it like now? Do we have to get blood pressure and the vision test done again? I know there will be plenty of vaccinations and shots too. 

    Thanks

    They do not do another physical at Cape May, so you will not have vision, hearing, blood pressure, etc. checked in that regard.

    However, everyone has to have a dental screening the first week, and they check everyone's blood pressure prior to that screening. If it is high there's a good chance they will refer you to medical.

    Okay, thank you! What do you mean when you say refer to medical? It's unlikely for that to happen but just in case, what would they do at medical?

    From what I remember medical was the worst part of week 1. Tons of standing in line, waiting for things to be taken care.

    If you have glasses, you will be issued the BCG's in place of your glasses and will have dental done. They will schedule your teeth removal if you need it probably then or at least tell you to have them taken out.

    Medical is a long week. Be prepared to read and reread your Helsman over & over again. Long lines, standing around, or sitting, remember don't fall asleep. If you have glasses you'll be issued 02 pairs in maybe Week 02-03. Medical is like your doctor's office. If you're sick, injuried, need medical attention that's where you will go.
