Vaccinations needed.

Hi,

I have the list of vaccinations needed;

Hepatitus A

Hepatitis B

Influenza

Influenza type B (Hib)

Measles

Meningococcal (meningitis)

Mumps

Pneumococcal (Pneumonia)

Pertussis (whooping cough)

Polio

Rotavirus

Tetanus and diphtheria toxoids

Varicella (chicken pox)

I've been told that I don't need all of these for the medical, but I will need to have had them all before I apply for the green card.

I've read on here that it's much better to get all of the vaccinations done in the U.K before the medical. My local doctors surgery can do the ones I need (MMR-£15, Men-c-£15, Hep A+Hep B £60, Pneumonia-£8.50 all plus VAT). The Nurse told me they don't do the Rotavirus, but to try a travel clinic. I found one in Cambridge and the Rotavirus is £100.

Is there anyone going through the process that can confirm I'm on the right track? Do the prices seems ok?

The Influenza (flu jab) they only give seasonal (i.e winter time), so I won't have that. Will that be ok for the green card?

Can anyone tell me if children need the rotavirus too?

The nurse will be giving me the Meningococcal-C (meningitis-C) vaccination. Which is the standard one here. On the list above they don't specify which type of Meningitis they want so I hope this will be ok?

Thanks for any help! :)

Timeline

In the Philippines all of the shots needed that could be given were included in the medical exam cost. Once fiance got to the US and we were married the missing shots were coverd by my health insurance.

Her daughter need a few shots as soon as she arrived in the US to enroll in school that we got at reduced price from a local charity clinic.

Total cost for all shots was less then $40 usd.

You are right in that it will probably save you a lot of money to get any vaccinations you need done by your GP but you don't need all of those. Are you checking this info?: http://photos.state.gov/libraries/unitedkingdom/164203/cons-visa/iv018a_medical.pdf

Page 7 and 8 has the vaccination requirements but you need to check which ones are age appropriate. Hep A for instance is only valid for ages 12 - 23 months and Hep B only up to 18 years of age. Rotavirus is only shown as being required for age 2-6 months. Varicella is not available in the UK so you are excused it - they will probably ask if you have had chicken pox. The main ones you need are the TDaP (Tetanus, Diptheria and Pertussis) and MMR. My GP did both of those for free. As you said, you only need flu during the flu season.

You are on the wrong track. I've answered your question before on this same subject. If you would take the time to read the first post in this thread it will tell you EXACTLY what shots to get. Click here---> http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/350185-london-2012-k1s-from-noa2-to-interview-thread/ The shots are even in bold type. I am 1000% sure the information is correct

The Influenza (flu jab) they only give seasonal (i.e winter time), so I won't have that. Will that be ok for the green card?

Yes, but only if you get everything you need corectly recorded on the DS-3025 shot record at Knightsbridge. If you leave shots to be taken after the medical or in the US then you will pay a civil surgeon and if it happens to be flu season at that time, then you will need a flu shot.

Can anyone tell me if children need the rotavirus too?

What are the ages you need to know about?

The nurse will be giving me the Meningococcal-C (meningitis-C) vaccination. Which is the standard one here. On the list above they don't specify which type of Meningitis they want so I hope this will be ok?

You don't need it for immigration if you are over 18 years old.

Thanks. I had read this, but then saw the long list of vaccinations and thought I needed the rest for the AOS. Another member posted the form for the medical and the table to show how old you have to be for each vaccination. You know your stuff. Thanks!

Yes, but only if you get everything you need corectly recorded on the DS-3025 shot record at Knightsbridge. If you leave shots to be taken after the medical or in the US then you will pay a civil surgeon and if it happens to be flu season at that time, then you will need a flu shot.

What are the ages you need to know about?

My son is 4, and from looking at the table he only needs Pneumococcal (which the nurse will give him for free)

I'm 33, and I only need the MMR (I only really need mumps, but they don't do that seperatly!)

and I'm going to get the tetanis and dip as I had it 5 years ago in Spain, but have no record of it.

My son currently has chicken pox at the moment, so that's one less thing to worry about! (I'm getting it recorded on his notes and will take that to the medical)

You don't need it for immigration if you are over 18 years old.

Thanks! The link was very helpful. I'm now going to have to have 2 vaccinations instead of 6! :D
