Question re medical and vaccination record

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. New to this site, and still trying to figure out abbreviations and form numbers regarding visa application.

 

US citizen Fiance and I have not filed the form I-129F but as early as now Im gathering needed documents for visa applications. 

 

Im curious what is included in the medical part of this application. Also what is an accepted form of documentation for vaccination? I have most of my vaccinations done at my current workplace wherein we are provided a small vaccination booklet. Will this be sufficient for me to take on the day of my medical to show that I have completed my vaccines? Im currently working in Bahrain and plan to process my visa in the Philippines.

 

Thanks

For my interview in London I had a print out from my local doctor in the UK showing what vaccinations I'd had (they looked them up in my medical records, and took a photocopy for me).

 

Not sure if it would work differently in your country.

Thank you limey.

 

I had my childhood immunization record back home, however most of my most recent vaccination is from overseas. I referred to the USCIS and CDC websites for vaccine requirements for immigrants and I only have about 2-3 lacking. Here in Bahrain the government's health department provides a certification of vaccination which is a booklet where all your vaccines are recorded. I am just not sure if this booklet alone is sufficient as proof that i have indeed completed this aspect of the immigration requirement.

I'm pretty sure that would be sufficient. In the UK they didn't seem too bothered about the form of it. I had a separate booklet of vaccinations from private places I'd had some as an adult, and they accepted it all, and the medical record stuff I provided was really messy photocopies of doctors hand writing from the mid 1970s (i'm 44), and that was no problem. You should be fine.
