Vaccinations for elderly parents

My wife is bringing her parents here to live. They are in Russia. The process is going fine, but we're concerned about the medical exam and the required vaccinations. The Dept. of State web site has a LONG list of vaccinations they may or may not be required to have. This is at:

http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_1331.html

According to this web site, the examining physician will determine, based on their age, health, medical history, etc., which vaccinations to require. They are both in their 70's. Can anyone give an idea of which ones they will most likely require?

Thanks so much,

Ron M.

I am going to ask but how are they going to deal with Medical Insurance here?

A question often asked but for which no one has come up with an answer.

Unless you are stinking rich.

I would be grateful if this could stay on topic. That is a serious question, but I don't want to open that can of worms here. Thank you.

Hello for what I know TDAP and MMR are a must at least here in the UK and some are required when you are over 60's..I suggest you to go to the Russia,Belarus and Ukraine forum and ask the same question there or even have a look on the US Embassy in Moscow website .

Good Luck

I'm not sure that the MMR is age appropriate. Most of us over 50 something had at least measles and mumps growing up and are generally immune and thus don't need the MMR. TDAP is not necessary but optional for those over 65 years old.

Check the CDC for specifics. http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/recs/schedules/adult-schedule.htm

Well I'm 42 and here in the Uk when you have your medical they are giving you MMR and TDAP,specially TDAP that is valid only for 10 years so if you had a shot longer than that you need to get another shot. My GP asked me to get a blood test to check my immunity levels on measles and mumps because I don't remember having has a child but already got my TDAP last Monday!By the way I'm the beneficiary.

In the US if you were born before 1957 MMR is not age appropriate. If you are over 65 then TDAP is optional.

OP's inlaws are in their 70s

You qualify on your own right, but the vast majority of elderly parents coming to the US will not.

If there is a solution it would be nice for the OP to share it.

I do understand that is very difficult for some parents and a health insurance doesn't come chip! :unsure:
