      SUBJECT: DOCUMENTATION GUIDELINES FOR ANTHRAX IMMUNIZATION

      1. Soldiers in the Southwest Asia Theater of operations during the time
      frame I January through 16 February 1991 were ordered to receive the
      anthrax immunization which was the only "secret" immunization given in
      theater. Some soldiers received one immunization; others received a
      second injection (Al, A2).       During this period of time, Operational
      security precluded annotating    this immunization in the individuals shot
      record and/or the medical       record.     This guidance has since been

                                                         - ------ --- ---I         -
      guidelines should be followed    for documenting this activity:
            a. Unit clerks or a unit   representative selected by the individual
      commander should prepare an alpha roster of personnel in the theater
      during the specified periods of time.
            b. Many of the immunization sites have since redeployed and their
      records and the roster of units they immunized are not available.          For
      that reason, it must be assumed that all service members in SWA during
      the specified time period received one or two anthrax injections. Due to
      the discomforts associated with the injections, soldiers will most likely
      remember whether they received a single or multiple vaccination.           The
      soldiers, word will be accepted, and one of the attached slips will be
      stapled to the medical record and/or the shot record upon redeployment to
      home station. (See attachments 1 and 2)
cine.
      Unit clerks at the time of immunization provided alpha rosters which were
      validated and returned to the unit. Units are authorized to annotate the
      shot records of deployed soldiers with the appropriate immunization
      record.

      3. To emphasize: no theater records of the anthrax vaccine program are
      available.    Each unit deployed to SWA during the specified time frame
      should survey their soldiers and annotate the individual shot records
      with the appropriate form.
