This is a list of shots found in the K1 instructions. Are all these required prior to the physical exam?

Vaccinations currently required are as follows:
 Mumps
 Measles
 Rubella
 Polio
 Tetanus
 Diphtheria
 Pertussis
 Haemophilus influenzae Type B
 Rotavirus
 Hepatitis A
 Hepatitis B
 Meningococcal disease
 Varicella
 Pneumococcal
 Influenza
 Any other vaccinations recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices.

My Fiancee has no prior shot records. Does she need all of these shots? ouch

Thanks

My wife also has no immunization record......

But from what I have seen so far, most are receiving only 4 or 5 vaccinations during their exam.

No she does need all of them. My Fiance also had no prior record of receiving any immunization shots. When she went for her medical they only gave her what was needed as many of the shots are not age appropriate anymore.

1) No vaccinations are required for K1, none.

2) If your spouse is 18 - 64 years old then, optionally, all she needs are three shots as listed below (TDAP, MMR and Varicella) for the AOS:

YMMV.

Although not required, you do pay for them as part of the fee at St. Lukes.

For the Philippines, at St. Lukes there is a flat fee for the entire physical - including any necessary shots.
So its pay now and get them or pay anyway and get them later which may or may not cost you.

From the posts above, it sounds like it happens during the physical. The exam doctor will tell her what shots are needed and give them to her as part of the physical. Is this correct?

Thanks to everyone

Yes, that is correct. The immunizations are usually given on day 2 of the exam.

This must be a Phillipines thing as all the research I found was that the shots are not necessary except for some for AOS.

The shots are not necessary (required). But if you need to get some of them later (AOS) why worry about it and get them when you pay the first time.
So yes it is a Philippines Embassy thing.
