Price of Vaccinations?!

My fiance just told me that out of the list of the vaccinations, the only ones she needs are HPV, Hep. B, and Meningitis. I can't believe the price for this stuff in Brazil, she told me that the HPV is 3 vaccinations each R$500 which is about USD$250 and the others are R$120 which is about USD$60. I had no idea they were this expensive. Does she need to get all 3 shots of the HPV while in Brazil or can she get just one there and the rest here where it's cheaper? Oh wow I'm shocked here :blink: I had no idea. And I know that she needs more medical stuff during the Adjustment of Status right? What will that be?

from what i have read she can get them after she gets here unless they require for her to get them thru the usa embassy in her country...........i could be wrong

but that is what my understanding is of it so far

I was under the same impression from talking to my lawyer...I could be wrong but I believe that there is no need for immunizations in Brazil because they can be completed in the United States during the ajustment of status stuff.

The vaccinations are not required for the entry on the K-1, but will be required for the next step.

Well I just got off the phone with my lawyer, he informed that she will have to get the vaccinations in Brazil, unfortunately. They are so expensive :( Oh well that's that I guess.
