Need repeated vaccines done at St Lukes?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

My fiance and her daughter have been getting vaccine injections over the last few months to prepare for the interview, so she wont need to get them at St Lukes. Basically most of the injections that are needed to come to the US. Well apparantly she was in contact with St Lukes and they said that all the injections she recieved (at her Dr in Santiago, Isabela) are not applicable and she and the daughter has to have them all again at St. Lukes. Does this sound legit to anyone or just an attempt to earn more money for the facility? She has records of all their recent injections over the last few months.

Edit: I read the recent post by CJ8611 but am hoping for some clarification as it looks like it could still go either way.

It definetly isn't to make money, as the price is the same for the medical whether you have confirmed vaccinations or not. Its not a big deal to have them again, or health risks.

If vaccines are needed its inclusive of the price.

Just let them bring their immunization baby book/immunization certificate me and daughter did the same and they honor our latest 2 immunization so at SLEC were given 2 shots each.

Which vaccinations has your fiancée received already?

Maybe she has received more than she would have gotten at St. Lukes.

SLEC conducts their own check-ups and they get to decide what shots to give you. It's standard procedure for them.

You could have saved money if your fiancee and daughter just waited for the medical instead of getting shots from their local physician.

All the shots that SLEC will give (regardless of how many because it varies from person-to-person) are already INCLUDED in the medical fee so no need to pay separately for each shot.

Hope this helps. Good luck. :innocent:
