VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS ACCORDING TO AGE AND GENDER

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Timeline

The following manual is the current guide that ALL U.S Immigration Panel Physicians use to determine which vaccines you need. Requirements are different for everyone, and depend on your age and gender! The list that you find online, through USCIS, and through your embassy is a list of ALL possible vaccines needed and does not specify gender and age.

You may not need everything on the list. For example, adults over a certain age do not need MMR (Mumps, Measels, and Rubella) as these are childhood illnesses.

Find the Manual at the following link. Check out page 12 for vaccination requirements.

The updated immunisation list (2011) is here: http://www.cdc.gov/v...lt-schedule.pdf Page 2 has the table.

The USCIS list is here: http://www.uscis.gov...0004718190aRCRD

So you compare the USCIS list to the 2011 list above. The CDC (which USCIS uses) still recommends the HPV and zoster vaccine but USCIS doesn't REQUIRE it for immigration which is why it isn't on the USCIS list but is mentioned on the CDC table.

The actual CS instructions (including updates) are here: http://www.cdc.gov/i...l-surgeons.html this list here is updated. You can see it mentions the TB information, and seasonal flu information and that HIV has been removed. On the left you can see a table that has the list of CS documents/pages.

As opposed to the .pdf you linked from ***removed***, you should look here: http://www.cdc.gov/i...structions.html as the .pdf you linked is from 2009 and this link is updated regularly.

**Edit - I tried using ***removed*** back when I did my K1 and it was completely useless. It's made (or was back in 2009) for people from high fraud countries so there's lots of things they mention/ed that are not ACTUALLY required. So I steer clear of that site.

WOW, this is very helpful! there have been major changes including in Hep B and A age range requirements. I know that immigration uses CDC recommendations, but just like how HPV and zooster are not required, are you sure the age ranges all stay the same too?

Yep. I was 26 when I did the K1 so I was required to have HPV (it was still needed then). Didn't worry me 'cause it was free in Australia if you were under 26 so I'd already had it before I did the visa :P

However, are you sure they are going by the age range recommendations of the CDC because I am pretty sure Hep B will not be required of everyone.

You have to actually read the table "key". The items in YELLOW on the table are definitely required for the age range by the CDC BUT you must compare the list to the USCIS list because HPV isn't required for immigration (it's yellow because the CDC recommends it for that age but because USCIS doesn't need it for immigration you wouldn't have it).

The items in PURPLE are only required if there are certain health issues etc that would require it, as seen in table 2.

Hep B is listed in purple and is therefore only required if you have any issues found in table 2 that would mean you should get it. Usually people don't need it.

I'd like to know that too. Will everyone need Hep B for AOS?

No. See response above.
