medical exam shots

The OP is under CR/IR type of visa. Vaccines are different compared to K1 since we don't adjust status when we get there. Just like what Magdasal said, you don't have to worry about the vaccines since they are already included in the medical fee. Before vaccinations, a doctor will look into the results of the exam first. Whatever it is that your wife needs (vaccines), SLEC will give it to her with no charge. I don't think you need to see a private doctor to have your wife's shots done before the medical because your wife can get them all (if needed) at SLEC.

Hi Yhang! I think you can help me on my confusion. I had my medical exam last April 22-23, 2013 at SLEC. I had four shots of vaccines, HepaB, Varicella, TDap and MMR. These vaccines have follow-up/booster doses. Do you have an idea if I can just have them from our private doctor here in Tarlac City before going to U.S. because if I am not mistaken they are more expensive in U.S.? It's just that I'm not sure if it will be accepted by USCIS. If it's acceptable, do the private doctor need to fill-up the same vaccine record that SLEC has given to me? or they should provide another record for the booster doses?

Thank you very much. smile.png

Vaccines are an additional significant charge above the medical in the UK (at least 100 GBP if you need three or more vaccines). I'm just pointing this out for people from other countries than the Philippines. Check your country's requirements. My husband saved a lot of money getting his local doctor to catch him up on shots under the NHS, so he can provide a record of vaccination to the medical in London.

I'm a dual US/Hungarian citizen (both by birth; Hungarian citizenship verification TBA), and my husband is a dual British/Irish citizen (by treaty) from Northern Ireland. We are atheists.
