Madical exam costs.

I see the cost of the medical exam is 800 RMB and I assume that does not include the cost of the vaccinations because it depends on which ones you need.

Can anyone give me a ball park figure on the shots? My fiancee is 48 years old.

Thanks

Perhaps I can add some information:

My 46 yo wife was unable to get the vaccinations done in China, due to time constraints. As a consequence, she received them at her Civil Surgeon (CS) examination in Seattle on 13 Aug 2012. According to the CS report, she received a Tuberculin Skin Test, Td and MMR vaccinations. At that time, I had applied to include her on my employer's health insurance plan, but no coverage information was available so I paid cash for the exam. We have since provided the CS with her health insurance information since she was covered retroactively to 1 August 2012, and are in the process of receiving a refund of my payment to the CS. I just received the EOB from the insurance company, the CS charged $160 for the immunizations and skin test. The health insurance plan has paid negotiated charges of $124.

Due to the individual nature of each person's immunization record, and the time of year (i.e., no current influenza vaccination necessary or available in August), there are a lot of potential variables. Just take a look at the list of the vaccinations on Form I-693. What I am saying is that the immunizations she received where determined to be appropriate by the CS at the date of her examination. Additionally, it is my impression that the CS didn't give us any discounts on the vaccinations, even though he was a Chinese physician and my wife thought he would be more reasonable with his fees/charges. YMMV.

In retrospective, I should have been more insistent that my wife get her immunizations done in China, I firmly believe that they would have been cheaper there. However, accurate and complete immunization records would likely be required by the CS in America. I hope that helps.

Good luck on your immigration journey.

no clue on the costs of the vaccinations, but

do note that it's very useful to have another shot record made, whilst she's there.

For 20 more rmb, her shot records are transcribed into a yellow book, and she can keep it.

A shot record is useful if she needs it in the USA for work purposes (working with children, getting a state job, getting a federal job). It's so worth the extra 20 rmb to get it, IMO.
