the three C's

Willie Moore said that Willie Brown was all messed up when he got the three C's

They did make it to Camp Shelby where Willie Brown had a fateful meeting with the camp doctors.  ?Willie Brown just fell down cold,? Moore said laughing.  ?When they gave him the three Cs, (shots) he just fainted.?

What were the three C's.  I know they were shots but what kind?  Anyone know :)

Civilian Conservation Corps (part of the New Deal) - enrollment started out with vaccinations, which were sometimes referred to as CCC (or 3C) vaccinations - smallpox, diphtheria, typhoid, and in some areas, spotted fever -  these being the usuals.
