Tell the civil surgeon if you do not wish to receive the required vaccines or a particular vaccine. You should also tell the civil surgeon the reason you do not wish to receive the vaccine(s). In this case, a waiver may be available to you, but only under the following circumstances:

You are opposed to vaccinations in any form– that is, you cannot obtain a waiver based on an objection only as to one vaccination

Your objection must be based on religious beliefs or moral convictions; and

The religious or moral beliefs must be sincere.

The form used to apply for a waiver depends on the adjustment category under which you are seeking legal permanent residence status. For example, refugees and asylees seeking adjustment of status should file Form I-602, Application by Refugee for Waiver of Grounds of Excludability. Individuals seeking adjustment of status as a result of an approved Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, or Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker, would file Form I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility.

Before this gets moved I'll just add that from what I remember this waiver is expensive and the chances of success low. If you let the vaccine issue slide, I would just get them.

I'll second this. It also adds a sizeable amount of time to the process, if I can recall correctly.

This certainly does not belong in the politics and religion forum. Moving to waivers.

We get questions about this occasionally, and I have never yet seen one approved. And yes, they are costly and take a long time so it will probably double the time of your getting the visa, with very little chances of success.

Can I ask what religion you are that objects to vaccinations? Have you ever had any vaccines in the past, say as a child? If you have had standard childhood vaccines, and depending on your current age, you may not need anymore.
