I had the gun shot vaccinations in Marine Corps boot camp during the Vietnam War. Six total three in each arm. Mine went without a hitch but I was told by others if you flinched the gun could create some nasty torn skin.

Not in boot camp but later in my technical school they lined us up and had us go through dual corpsmen.
A guy in our Guard unit had ALS. I think his family suspected something they gave him when the war started early 90s.
