The medical & vaccinations

I've just received my vaccinations list from the doctor, and amazingly it goes all the way back to my first childhood ones in 1973 (yes, I know, I'm older than a fair number of people on here :lol:).

From the list:

1973 DTP + Polio (booster in 1976)

1973 Measles

1984 BCG (TB vaccination)

1986 Tetanus

1986 Polio

2000 Tetanus booster

2000 Polio booster

2000 Hep A (booster in 2001)

2000 Typhoid

From that, I would assume that I now need another Tetanus booster and, presumably, the MMR? I had chickenpox in my early 20s, so the Varicella issue should be fine, I think :wacko:

That's a very good and thorough list.

The doctor performing the exam is the one who calls the shots (no pun intended) on what shots you will need. You don't need them at the exam, as you can wait until the AOS phase when you are in the U.S.

But many people get them at the exam anyway, or at least at some point before they leave their native country, because of cost. Health care in the U.S. is $$$.

In your case, with access to NHS in your native country, you probably want to get missing ones there from your local clinic.

Hey rallybug, I'm older than you lol. I had all of the vaccinations at my local GP surgery again, even the ones I had as a child and the boosters. I think they should have charged me as I had them done at the travel clinic, but they didnt so I guess I was lucky! It doesnt hurt to have them again, so I just felt happier doing it that way then I knew my vaccination sheet was completely up to date. Oh and start early because some are a course over a few months.

Best of luck :thumbs:

You're going to need MMR and DTP (not just tetanus). Maybe flu. I wrote about it a few days ago HERE.
