The military never had any problem with doing that to any poor sap who lost their shot card...

I got the smallpox twice within 2 years because the Navy didn't properly keep records. The vaccine works, because the second time they jabbed me, there was no swelling or irritation at all for me, while everyone else on the boat had swelling and itching that lasted several days.
