Medical Exam - Missing Vacine

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Wife has interview coming up soon at US Embassy. So, she scheduled medical exam. Before going, she went to her personal doctor to review vacines and was given the varicella vacine. Now after going to medical exam, doctor told her she was also missing the 2nd dose of the MMR vacine. Problem is that because she received varicella vacine, she must wait 30 days before she receive the MMR. However, her interview is scheduled before then.

The doctor advised that she go to the interview, explain the situation, and then once she received the MMR vacine doctor would deliver report to US Embassy.

I'm guessing they will conduct interview, but will not issue visa until the records are delivered to Embassy. Any thoughts? Anybody else had similar situation? Should she expect any obstacles?

Very strange, the doctor should sign off on the vaccinations OK with the first MMR dose, and leave it up to you to do this after getting visa and entry to the USA.

My wife had just first dose none and ahe no problems immigrating, we latter got tested for immunity, when she wanted to go to a college in the USA, but the second dose was not needed for immigrations and green-card.

She tried explaining that to the doctor and convincing him to sign off given she already had the 1st dose, but noluck. Doctor simply stated that he would not complete paperwork until she showed proof of having received 2nd dose of MMR. Not sure I have any options.

Most consulates have more than one medical center or board certified doctor, if so then perhaps going to the other one.

Moving this thread to Consulate/Embassy forum...

You are correct that it is up to you if you want all the shots but it is up to the physician to certify your immunization status based on health and age. Without that approval you won't get a visa. Not much to contest either since the physicians are approved by the embassy. As Dan said, try another approved physician would be about the only choice or wait a couple of weeks, have the shot and the worries are over.


May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

Now I'm worried :( ...I am missing a vaccine and consulate approved doctor said she would order it. She called me yesterday to say she cant get it before the interview date (Feb 14), that she would recommend in her report that I get it when I arrive in the states.

Will that cause a problem? Will the embassy accept that or will I have to go and find it elsewhere before I am approved?
