Vaccinations Required for K-1 Visa

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We were told that all of the following vaccinations are required to enter the USA and they have to been administered in the last three months.

· Mumps

· Measles

· Rubella

· Polio

· Tetanus

· Diphtheria

· Pertussis

· Haemophilus influenzae Type B

· Rotavirus

· Hepatitis A

· Hepatitis B

· Meningococcal disease

· Varicella

· Pneumococcal

· Influenza

My fiancee has taken none of these in last three months. Will she be required to take all of these when she goes to Manila for interview and medical exam?

Because only few of them listed above are required prior interview, yet, some others are required later when applying green card, I believe zoster and HPV are also required for that.

They will only give what is age appropriate for your fiancee. My wife didn't have any shot records and she only received 3 or 4 shots at St. Lukes.

Q. I heard that the vaccine against herpes zoster (zoster) and the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) are required vaccines. Is this true?

No they are not.

The only ones required for AOS are MMR, Tdap/TD, varicella(unless you had the chickenpox) and flu shot(only during flu season).

^^^ Absolutely right!

OP...She doesn't need any shots before her medical. She'll get the shots she needs during her medical at St. Lukes. The shots are covered in the price of the medical.

Chinook got the MMR, the TDap, and the flu shot at St. Lukes. She already had chicken pox, so she didn't need the varicella shot. No more shots were needed for AOS.

Ryan&Rain...Please stop spreading misinformation.

It is supposedly 2 doses for MMR. First one when you are about 1 year old, then you should get another one when you are around 5

I only got 2 shots. One of them is MMR, which suppose to last lifetime (and I got it as a kid). Not sure know why I took it all over again?
