Vaccines Question

2 posts in this topic

Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: England

I want to go ahead and get my family's vaccines updated at our local GP. Because I do not want to mention immigration if at all possible, I don't want to ask them too many questions. I am going to use the angle of a new step-mother wanting to make sure the children are all up to date on their vaccines.

According to the Embassy, both my children and my husband need Tdap and MMR, and my the children need Hepatitis B and MCV/MPSV.

I have home vaccine records for them.

They've never had MCV or Hepatitis B we'll just have to get that.

The children had Polio, Diptheria, Tetanus & Whooping Cough and MMR as young children. Do these need to be re-boostered at any point in their lives?

We are not sure where my husband's records are (he's lived all over) so he may need to get his again again. But I hoping we can track them down.

I know that the Varicella is not available in the UK, do they still need to get it before we adjust status in the US? With their ages, it would make sense to get it as soon as possible when we arrive. "Welcome to the US, here's your chickenpox" would not be cool.

I just took the list and went to the Surgery and the Nurse did them. I think to get Varicella I had a combined shot, you can not get it by itself.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
