Number of vaccinations question

Ok. We still are waiting for our interview, but I have a question about the vaccination requirement for AOS. I have read all the info on the CDC website regarding the schedule for adult vaccinations and the required vaccinations for AOS. This is what I think is required (from CDC website age 19-49):

1. 3 doses of Tdap (if no evidence of prior vaccination)...or being somewhere on the timeline of completing the series at time of AOS application

2. MMR it says one or two doeses...which one is accepted for AOS one or two. Seems silly to have us pay for two if one is acceptable (he had this vaccine in Nov)

3. Polio

4. Vaicella 2 doses, 1-2 mths apart.

My question is really about the MMR. Is one or two doses required by the civil surgeon to check the box that the series is complete?

Thanks!

Emma

2. What vaccines should be administered to a person with an inadequately documented vaccine history?

If the applicant is unable to produce a written vaccination record or if in the civil

surgeon’s opinion the record is inadequate, every effort should be made to vaccinate the applicant unless a contraindication exists. The vaccines routinely recommended by the U.S. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) based on the applicant’s age must be administered. Specific information on vaccines, including tables on age-appropriate vaccines and ACIP recommendations, are available at CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases website: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines.

They recommend 1 or 2 doses, so I'm guessing/assuming 1 will be fine. But who knows. Call your CS's office and inquire :thumbs:

Good luck.

I was really wanting to know what was accepted by those that have already had the vaccination portion of the I-693 filled out by the civil surgeon.
