Immunizations

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just received my immunization record in the mail from the Public Health office in Ottawa, Ontario. I compared it to the vaccination requirements in Packet 3. I'm missing Hep A, Influenza, Human papillomavirus, Meningococcal, Pneumococcal, Rotavirus, Zoster, and the newbie shot Gardasil. Gardasil is a whopping $180 each and you need 3 but only one to gain entry in to the U.S.

My medical examination is on Sept. 22. Will these missing vaccinations delay our process? OR Could my family doctor give me some of the mentioned above vaccinations as I wait for my appt? :help: I really don't know. I tried calling the panel physician and they will not be returning to the office until another week! :angry:

You probably don't need all those:

Gardasil is Human Papilloma virus HPV- female to age 26

Hep A- No, if you're older than 24 months

Influenza- No if you're between 7 and 50

Meningococcal-No if over 18

Rotavirus- No if you're older than 6 months.

Zoster- No, if you're under 60.

There are age appropriate immunizations and you probably aren't of the age to require most of them. I don't know what list you are looking at, but there should be some age guidelines. Here's a long document from the CDC, who makes the list, and on page 12, there is a good table with ages. http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dq/pdf/ti_vacc.pdf

If you need anything, get the family doc to do it and take a signed letter or record from him to the panel physician to show what you've had in addition to what the Public Health Records states.
