Jun 17, '13hey guys, how is everyone doing with the physical exam portion of it? I am really pressing for time to have everything done by july 15th. Good luck everyone !!! hope we all succeed in this awesome journey!!!
Jun 19, '13My physical is scheduled for July 5th so ill probably have to give them the 2 step shot verification later. Hopefully it won't be a problem
Jun 19, '13The 2 step ppd's are done one week apart from eachother so it really isn't a big deal. Its the Hep B and Varicella that take awhile if you need them. Hep B is a 3 stage shot, you get one then have to wait one month for the 2nd, and the 3rd is done 6 months later. I think they want you to have at least one if not 2 shots done. The Varicella is two shots, one month apart. Don't worry about the timing. There were people that in September still didn't have all of their stuff in. They will harass you about it during the first few weeks of school if you are missing something.
