Immunization records question

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

I just got my immunization records and it says that I had shots for dipheria, pertussis and tetanus in 2003

I also had shots for MMR in 1989 ( I was born in 1987) do any of these need to be updated ?

I don't believe I need a shot for Meningococcal (Menjugate) because I am 23.

Do i need repeat shots for any of those or what ? Like I know tetanus is every 10 years. what about MMR ?

You're right, you don't need Meningococcal as that's only required for children from 11 to 18.

As for the MMR, you don't need any kind of booster shots.

This is a question for the Dr who will be performing your medical exam. Requirements differ from consulate. Meningococcal was one we definitely had to have. But, it is not on the list according to the Gov't website. Vaccination Requirements We also had to have Varicella (chickenpox) as she had never had the chickenpox nor the vaccination.

So, call the Dr you will be going to and ask him what requirements he/she will be looking for.

MMR does not require boosters but it is suggested to have them if you are a woman and you have a titre done that shows low immunity.

Has to do with having kids and being well protected from passing anything on. Mainly the Rubella.

For Toronto, this page outlines the vaccines you need: http://www.panelphysicians.com/Pages/Age6.htm

Since it's not 2013 you shouldn't need a booster. However, be aware that for AOS they require more vaccinations (it's somewhere on the travel.state.gov website- yeah, I know I'm being descriptive >_>). I had an MMR when I was a kid but when I saw my family physician she gave me an MMR booster without even taking a titre to test my immunity. She said that in the States they will "absolutely" require me to have an MMR booster (for AOS) so I might as well get it while it's free. No idea if that's true or not, I wouldn't worry about it. The only difference is that you may have to pay for more vaccines once you're in the States instead of getting some of them for free here.

The only time you need more shots before AOS is if you are just starting a series of 3-4 vaccinations or if you were pregnant and could not get any that you needed.

I had MMR when I was a child and not since then and NO a booster was not required for AOS.

AOS does not "require more vaccinations". Only ones you could not get or have to finish a series of.
