I just took TD shot, CS says I still need Tdap

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My first post...

I took a TD shot from my physician and then went to the Civil Surgeon to get the medical exam. He looked at the letter from my physician that says I have taken TD on June 2nd, CS says that since March 2009, there is a new regulation that requires people in my age (29) need the Tdap shot and not just the Td shot.

CS is now telling me to wait for one month and then come back to him to take Tdap shot. I am concerned about the double dose and side effects, I read the USCIS instructions and seems like they want people to take TD or TDAP shot, not necessarily TDAP.

any opinion?

thanks in advance.

Thought to share my experience in case someone else faces the same situation...

I went to another CS without mentioning the complication I had with the previous CS. He looked at the doctor's letter showing my TD shot and said I am all set for Vaccines and do not need anything else.

Hi! I am in this exact situation right now. But I had a DT shot today. So, did the second CS authorise everything or did you need Tdap in the end?

Thanks.

My husband only had the TD shot on his vaccine record and the CS did not question it.

The only people who questioned him were the nurses at our insurance provider.

This could probably explain their concern: Obviously TD is different from TDAP, they are both tetanus shot, but the TDAP also comes with the vaccine for the whooping cough, which has been attacking kids more rapidly within the past few years. The tetanus shot is only good for only a certain amount of years. Even as adults we still need to continue taking shots just like when we were kids!

The doctors were just trying to take advantage of that!

Honestly, I would like my husband to get the Tdap since there is small children in our family, but he got the regular TD shot last year in his country, and don't know the consequences of getting the other one so soon!

So, is DT similar/same as TD??

You don't need the TDAP if you already got the TD booster. I only had the booster and i was fine, besides which the next dose is every 10 years.
