just 1 vaccin ?

honestly im not sure what is the importance of this medical exam ?and if the applicant must have a report prior to the interview and before entering to the us , why the US( spouse) petitioner dont pass any medical as well ,ahead before the marital life with his foreign spouse -who already made the medical- ,to be sure he does not have HIV or tuberculoe, !!!!

there is a basic physical examination, a chest x-ray, and bloodwork, as well as the vaccinations (there are 3-4 for adults, I believe). My husband is still waiting to have the appointment letter so he can go do the medical. I spoke to some one who was there with her husband when he did his. There were 3 buildings that they had to travel to. One for the exam, one for the X-ray, one for the blood-work. I'm not sure which of those stops they had the vaccinations at. They arrived about 6am and left to go home about 7pm, so it was a long day. They saw the female physician, but I can not say about the cleanliness of any of the offices. She did say the offices were busy. And, yes the exam is a necessity for the interview. No exam - no visa. Some countries won't even let you interview if they do not have the medical results on the interview day. I'm not sure if Casablanca is one of those or not. Good luck

The medical exam is something you cannot skip, so if you have a health issue, it will be shown on your body as well as on the bloodtest and x-ray, contrarily to what everybody thinks, the bloodtest covers the Syphilis only, but the Dr determines if you have other diseases by visual clinical check, including your throat, eyes, respiratory, genitalia on top of a chest x-ray, you will be asked by the Dr many questions such as if you smoke, drink, had any diseases before, using drugs, etc... the vaccination shots are very important to protect you and protect US citizens, you don't need to know exactly what they are, you just need them, 2 shots on your left arm and 1 shot on your right arms, a pain follows the shots, you will be recommended to use a hot towel to reduce the pain.

the medical exam is a full day process between the doctor's office, radiology center and laboratory center in a zone of about 5 kilometers.

People in the US are required to get the vaccines to attend school, so they already have them. The medical is to get you the same vaccines that the US people have. It's for the public health of the people in the US (and you, I might add). The US has gotten rid of some diseases that still exist in other places in the world, and the US doesn't want them here (like Tuberculosis).

Ok, i found you my medical exam from last year, the vaccine names are: 1- DTaP: for Tetanus + Diphtheria + Pertussis 2- MMR for Measles+ Mumps + Rubella. 3- Vericella ( The varicella vaccine is a live (attenuated) virus administered to protect against the viral disease commonly known aschickenpox caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV) )

The blood test medical terms are: TPHA and VDRL they both cover the Syphilis.

i don't have the answer for your question, but it is a good question, the beneficiary needs to be protected as well! Lah iwafe9
