Ive had all my shots up until I was 12, at the time my brother was diagnosed with a forum of autisum from one of his vaccinations, it was at that point that my parents decided none of their kids were going to get any more shots. I was just reading on the Woking medical site for the YVR medical that the Tdap shot is required every 2 yrs from 11-64?? is this right?

1 can always try the waiver route as well, but it may add a lot more time to ur journey!! And can still be denied!!


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

Do not be concerned that you will be hurting yourself by getting the vaccine. The doctor that did the original study linking the MMR vaccine to Autism has since lost his license to practice medicine due to falsifying data. The study would never have shown a correlation between vaccines and Autism if it was ever repeated, and if the doctor didn't falsify his data. Sadly, countless children die each year due to parent's continued fears over this vaccine. In Quebec, there are currently around 150 children with an outbreak of a disease that is entirely preventable, and sometimes the consequences for this disease are dire. As to why your brother developed Autism, it's not something that can be answered as of yet, though a lot of genetic tests are pointing to our DNA, and not an outside cause being to blame. It is pure coincidence that pointed the finger at the MMR vaccine, as it is given around the same time period that most children are being diagnosed. As to the mercury in shots, most vaccines in Canada no longer contain it, (called thimerosal) and it's not in a form that is dangerous in the vaccines that do contain it. (hep B shots are the only ones that come to mind)

As to when you need your shot, (it's called Adacel here in Ontario) you should have gotten it around 14-16 years old. Every 10 years after that, you get your Td. For the Visa process, you will need to show that you have your vaccines up to date, so see your family doctor and get that shot asap. I promise, it won't hurt! (just a #######!)
