 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

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:

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.
