Vaccines for Colombians

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

PilarPinto, there has been lots of discussion on this subject, but here is what we plan to have done prior to the medical:





I would also be interested to know if anyone recently to have a medical exam had to have anymore than the above. Also from prior posts, try to get the vaccinations 1 to 2 weeks prior to the medical exam, or they could tell you the vaccinations are to old and you have to get them done again by the doctor. When you get the vaccinations, make sure to get shot records to bring with you to the doctor and make sure the doctor in Bogota completes form

DS-3025 which I believe you will need when she gets to the United States.

Hi.. somebody know exactly what vaccines we need for the embassy since i calla lab and they told me i need like 10 of them really expensives :( tjx a lot!!!

For visa approval all that is needed are the MMR, TD and varicella (if the patient didn't get the disease as a child). You can get them before the medical if your health insurance covers them or if you think they'll be less expensive to get them somewhere else like the Red Cross for example. If you do, you need to get them less than a week to two weeks before the medical or the doctor may tell you that they're too old and will ask you to get them again at his/her office, just like Jon&Clau said. You may also wait to get them the day of the exam at their office but they may be more expensive, but a few other members have said that they're not, so it's up to you.

You can find more information to this question as well as any others you may have in the Colombia Club Part IV thread. You may also ask as many questions as you want in this thread and someone will always be willing to help you. :star:

Go to the appointment and they will tell you exactly what you need, they have a list of 10 or more but that doesn't mean that you will need to get them all. They wont tell you on the phone how many of them you need but maybe you will end up just needing the reinforcements that might be 3 and they will cost less. Go there and depending on your medical history they will tell you exactly what you need, for kids are more expensive because they are at a stage where they can still develope the virus, but for adults you would need maybe 3,obviously if you took the complete cicles when you were a kid.
