Improper Military Jet Injector Vaccinations – Part 4

Jet Injectors = Jet Infectors

May 21, 2016

The nozzle of the jet injector was not wiped between vaccinations. This is evidenced in these photographs by the lack of medical supplies within the immediate vicinity of the vaccinator. There is no cotton or gauze swabs to clean the nozzle or a readily available container for discarding waste. In some photos the carrying case of the jet injector is the only visible equipment next to the vaccinator. Several of the photos capture the corpsmen’s conduct in between vaccinations. Rather than wipe the nozzle the corpsmen are standing idle while waiting for the next recruit to step forward.
