No Vaccination history

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey gang....

Starting the Visa process via "DCF" in Frankfurt, Germany here in the next few months. Will be headed to the US in Feb 2012.

My wife and stepdaughter have no vaccination/medical records or history.

Do I need to be concerned about this at this point?

We have not gotten to the medical appointment and interview time at this point...but it will be in our not too distant future.

I'm deployed right now and my wife and stepdaughter are back home in the Phils for another month or so. Is there anything they should do now to make the medical appointment process easier?

They'll both be coming back to Germany at some point in March...and then I'll return to Germany in April or May.

Thanks for any and all info!

That will be no issue. They will give what is age appropriate. My wife only got 2 or 3 shots when she did her medical and she had no record of immunizations.

Others will provide you feed back as well

Incorrect. The price of the medical includes vaccinations.

Maybe cheaper if no vaccinations are required. Won't go over this with you.

Incorrect again. With or without vaccinations, the price of the medical is the same at St. Lukes. St. Lukes is the only facility in the Philippines authorized to perform the medical. Please stop posting misinformation.

What is the cost of the medical examination at SLMCEC?

•The medical exam fee is US$213.35 for adults (15 years and older) and US$185.35 for children (under 15 years of age).

The price is $213.35 (in Php) for adults no matter if you get vaccinations or not at St. Lukes. Read the pages and tell us where it says that it will be less. :bonk:

Thanks for all the answers and information everyone. A & I are glad we are covered for now.

Also, FYI: We'll be getting the medical stuff done in Frankfurt, Germany and not in Manila - as we are doing a "DCF" in Frankfurt. It will be costly (EUROS) for sure :) With or without vaccinations....

Michael...Don't worry about the vaccinations, as your girls will only be given the necessary age-appropriate vaccinations in Frankfurt.

And I'm sure there will be an expert coming along any minute now to tell you how much they cost in Frankfurt! :whistle::lol:

It's good to see you here again on VJ. Stay safe during your deployment. Thanks for your service. :thumbs:

When they recommend what immunization to give, is this enough for the AOS? Because a lot of people say that we should get all our vaccinations done before leaving the Philippines (to make it easier when filing for AOS).

During her medical at St. Lukes, Chinook received all of the vaccinations she needed for AOS. The vaccinations at St. Lukes are included in the price of the medical.

here's a link to US Embassy in Germany for medical exam... http://germany.usembassy.gov/visa/iv/step6/

it doesn't list fees since they can vary by physician. on the webpage there is a link to vaccination requirements.

That's great! So, this means that I don't really need to worry about that because I will have it done on my medical? I was worrying about this and wondering how I will get vaccinations because I saw a long list in the internet and I was worrying about how everything will cost.

Thanks :)
