Vietnam K-1 : Medical and Vaccination

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!... My fiancee spoke to IOM about medical and vaccination, and was told by IOM that for K-1 NO vaccination is required! Doesn't sound like that is true? Any recent HCM K-1 interviews who can chime in here? Thanks and appreciate your feedback!

I'm not from Vietnam but when I received packet 3 from Montreal I made sure to have ALL those vaccinations including travel ones that weren't provided under our free health care system here in Canada. When the nurse did my blood work and I showed my updated piece of paper, she said the consulate asks for the vaccines but doesn't require them all and they will all be required down the road. I was slightly annoyed as I got 8 vaccines in one day, but better to be prepared especially since (most of) it was free. better to be safe then sorry!

Also the reason for doing bloodwork (I thought it was to prove immunity) was to test for syphillis. I asked the nurse out of curiosity and that's what she told me. Good luck to you!

If they are talking about the required vaccines that is suggested then no it's true you don't need them for a k1...

But you do need the required vaccines for AOS.

We suggest getting the vaccines before or at the medical because if you do it afterwards or once in the states, you may have to pay large fees for the vaccines and civil surgeons will request you to pay for an entire new medical, as you will need a new vaccine form filled out by one, and they usually refuse.

It may be easier to get the vaccines now rather than later.

It depends on age. At the minimum, she'll need:

2 doses of MMR

1 Flu shot

2 Varicella (or proof that she had it before)

1 dose of Td or Tdap

There is a list of required vaccinations from the CDC and you mgiht want to Google it.
