vaccinations

My husband has no record of his vaccinations however he does have them all.... How would we go about this? Should he just get started on them all over again before we're assigned an interview date? Should he just wait for his medical checkup from an authorized doctor by the embassy to just give him all the shots....? I want us to be prepared.... HEEEEELP! lol

Please :)

Hello :) There are varying ideas on the best way to handle this. You can see if your husband could go get some titers done to test his blood and show proof that he had those vaccines or it may be that he will just have to get booster shots of the basic shots anyway.

I'm sure someone else will come along and help you out with this :) Good luck with the rest of your journey :):star:

He probably will need to get vaccinated again I am afraid. The good news is seeing as he is an adult he will most likely need only the tetanus vaccine, MMR II and Varicela vaccines.

Hi just recently went thru this with my husband, he had no records and I was sending him to a doctor to see what were the shots he needed. But I called the doctor he was going to see (the one the embassy authorizes) and she told me that SHE would determine what he needed according to his age....so he got 2 shots that she recomended he should have. He ended up going to a clinic and they were done for free!!! all he had to do was bring the authorized doctor the proof that he got them. So don't go crazy and get in touch with the doctor's office that he will be going to and they will give you all the info you need!! Good luck to you!

for vaccinations that are not problematic to re-administer they likely will just do that... for others they could perform titre tests to determine if certain antibodies exist... if they do this and they come back positive, then that will act as proof of those certain vaccinations


YMMV

So wait, did you wait until you got the interview date? Is this time consuming or anything in the fact that he has to wait a certain period to get each shot after another...?

As an adult there is only 4 shots he would need to get if he cannot show proof. Also, his school records should have proof of any childhood immunizations. As a male getting all of the immunzations at one time is no big issue health wise, only money wise.

I asked my husband about his school asking for immunization records and he said that there is no required vaccines to have to enroll into school.. Can you believe that?!!! 0_0 :bonk::wacko: El Salvador is slowly burning down to the ground... I gotta get him out of there... lol

Make sure you keep a copy of the inmunizations that he gets, you may need them later, USCIS got my medical records from El Salvador lost and those "approved" doctors don't give you copies, I had to go to another "approved" doctor to get another physical and if I had not have copies of my vaccination records I would have had to take them again. They are also useful when you get him enrolled in your medical insurance.
