Vaccination Question

I am beginning to feel like a forum spammer. :blink:

I just went and had the vaccination records for my kiddo and I updated at the local health unit so I could figure out what we need. We did not get flu shots this season, and we both need hep A and B. The flu shot is seasonal, so are they really going to hold fast to that one? The hep A/B are one month then six month booster... will they hold us up over the 6 month booster?

Flu shots or the Influenza vaccine is required for applicants 6 months through 18 years of age during the influenza (flu) season - so your ok with that.

Because completion of the vaccine series often requires several months, applicants are not required to have received all doses of the ACIP-recommended vaccines to fulfill the vaccination requirements for adjustment of status to U.S. permanent residence. Rather, they are required to have received at least one dose of each recommended vaccine, and they are encouraged to follow up with their primary health-care provider to complete the series.

My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

Why are you getting vaccinated for Hep A and B? Those are not required for your age group (assuming you are between 18 and 64 years of age).

They may be required for your child, depending on her age. Ok, just saw in your other spam :hehe: post that she is 6 - so she doesn't need a Hep A vaccination either.

Check out the immunization schedule by age at the link below to confirm what you actually need, this is the website of one of the panel physicians in Canada:
