Vaccination help!

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone will be able to answer this actually, as most people probably haven't gone through the green card process twice.

My first green card I was in the US, got married and stayed, had all the medical exams and vaccinations they required and got my green card in 2000. In 2003 we moved back to the UK and 'abandoned' my green card.

Now we want to go back. I've already had I-130 approved and getting everything I need done for the second part. I've just got my vaccination records from my GP's, and they're a bit rubbish to be honest, it can prove that I had the Polio, Diptheria and Measles ones when I was a baby, Tetanus uh, 20 years ago and a flu shot 11 years ago. It doesn't show the TB shot or rubella shot I had at secondary school.

I had the Hep B and any other ones while I was in the US. I have no idea where, as I moved around a bit, but I can narrow it down. Does the fact I can furnish my old green card and therefore I must have had the injections have any weight? I'm not sure how I would go about this. I don't mind having the jabs again at my GP's if I really need to, but I read (and remember) that the Hep B one requires 3 shots over 6 months...I don't want to wait that long to have my medical done and I really can't afford to pay the prices on the sheet they sent me today of what they change at the medical in Knightsbridge...

Any thoughts, advice?

As far as I can see if you are aged between 18 and 50 you only need the Tetanus and the MMR jabs at the London embassy stage.

You dont need Hep B unless you are under 17.

Anyway here is the link but ignore the Varicella (Chicken pox) as this isnt currently available in the UK. I was just asked if I'd had chicken pox, to which I answered, "yes, twice". That seemed good enough.

Are you saying they no longer give chicken pox vaccines in the UK or they are just out of the vaccine? My sister in law tells me that where she lives in France they don't give the Hep B series anymore.


The longer it takes to introduce yourself the less you've actually accomplished

The Chicken Pox vaccine has yet to be approved in the UK so it isnt available. The US embassy is well aware of this.

Varicella is not available in the UK. If you've had the illness normally the embassy will take you at your word. HepB is not given over 6 months, it is one injection a month for 3 months; but this doesn't matter anyway as you are over 17 and it is an age appropriate injection.
