Immunisations for UK citizen applying for CR-1

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I appreciate your time looking through this for me,

I have looked around for an answer to my question but I feel I need some first hand clarification.

I've seen the various immunisations I will need before my medical appointment.

According to my records I have had the following immunisations between 1990 and 2004 (they are chronological):

1st Polio, 1st Triple DIP/PERT/TET, 2nd Polio, 2nd Triple DIP/PERT/TET, 3rd Polio, 3rd Trip DIP/PERT/TET, 1st Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR), Single HIB, Measles/Rubella Campaign (MRC), Pre-school Polio Booster, Pre-school DIP/TET Booster, 1st BCG, Meningitis C, School-leavers DIP/TET/Polio

My concern is that I don't seem to have any Hepatitis shots. I understand that some may be age (I am in early-mid 20s) appropriate but can anyone confirm if I am missing any?

Many thanks!!

Age 18 is the end of Hepatitis requirement.

Heres the shots needed for 19 through 59 years of age:

Td or Tdap - or get DT, DTP or DtaP and it will be accepted for AOS also (not longer than 10 yrs ago)

MMR (if born in 1957 or later) It's two doses in your life.

Varicella Not routinely given in the UK ; a history of having chickenpox excuses you from the shot. They take your word for it at the visa medical exam.

Influenza - During flu season only, October 1 through March 31. This was a new recommendation dated November 2010 for all ages over 6 months. Older lists will say flu shots for over age 50. It changed.

If your Diptheria, Tetanus, Pertussis shot was more than 10 years ago, you need a Td (tetanus/diptheria)

Not sure if Knightsbridge will be okay with the MMR. You had one as a child, but then the measles/rubella one didn't Include mumps. You might get another MMR at your GP to make sure you are fully compliant or just wait u til your visa medical and pay for one if they question your MMR compliance.

The US has some different immunization schedules, so you are forced to get aligned with those to immigrate.
