However, some practitioners were unfamiliar with this discrepancy and initially declared presumptive immunity based on an "up to date" MEDPROS immunization report.
That number has nearly quadrupled in 8 years as a result of the HR category on MEDPROS.
MEDPROS automatically identified many of those Soldiers as Hearing Readiness Class IV because they were overdue for their annual (12-month) hearing test.

The required method for completing and forwarding deployment health forms is the Army Medical Department Medical Protection System (MEDPROS).
A record of each immunization required for deployment will be documented using MEDPROS. Immunization requirements vary by deployment destination (for specific guidance, see Army Regulation 40-562 6 and the PPG4).
A record of predeployment testing for tuberculosis infection and human immunodeficiency virus infection, performed as prescribed by DoD and DA policy, will be recorded using MEDPROS. A record of testing for deployment-related tuberculosis infection, as prescribed by DoD and DA policy, will also be recorded using MEDPROS.
Electronic completion and capture of deployment related health forms, archiving deployment health related forms and data in the centralized database at AFHSC, and the use of systems like MEDPROS to document and monitor deployment health related requirements have all improved dramatically.
