Medical Exam - Jamaica

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all... quick question. I know that during the medical exam most are required to get vaccinations according to US standards. Many have suggested going to the local clinic and receiving some of the vaccines prior to medical date due to how expensive they will be on that day. However, this morning the Montego Bay location said that he should not get vaccines at the local clinic. Any reason for that?

I would say that the reason they are saying not to get them in advance is they won't be able to charge you if he has them already - plenty have done it - if you have proof of the shots being done, nothing they can do about it.

Hi Nikki --- not sure why they would tell him that...I have plenty friends and family members who have go through Mobay Hope and had their shot records updated and their local clinics and had no issues. My husband also did the same thing and that was 3 years ago. In my husband case, we went to his grade school and they provided the card we took the card to the clinic in the area where he lived in Mobay. I told the nurse it was for immigration and he'll be going to the US and she looked at his card and told us which shots he needed...at his medical he didn't need anymore shots. Wishing you all the best.

One Love,

Lawny

Thanks everyone. I found the list on the CDC website for required vaccines for immigration purposes by age. They provide the physician guidelines and specifies the requirements for those acquiring the vaccines abroad for entry into the US. I'll have to post it for future reference. Thanks all.

Sorry for the delay folks. THis is the 2009 list of Physicians Instruction Regarding Vaccinations provided from the CDC for persons going through immigration process for entry into the United States. Please carefully review the age requirements and the asterisk notations provided. Also... please keep in mind we are talking about Jamaica and just because something is said here does not necessarily mean this is all that will be required on the day of the exam. It is ultimately at the physicians discretion, however, this will give you a good starting point.

Happy examining! NOT!

Can anyone who has recently had their medical tell me what shots were needed for someone over 18?

This list was posted 3 months ago, we are still having a hard time determining what shots are needed as of October 2011, since we want to have them done at a local clinic.

MMR -measeles, rubella and mumps

HIB

Heb A and B

varicella

pneumoccal

influenza (not the flu shot)

rotavirus

meningoccal
