Flu Vaccination

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

As it looks like I will be attending my interview in October, I was wondering if I should get a flu vaccination and take proof to the interview?

Regards

Rich

Yes, you should get one as soon as it's available - have you had your medical yet? If you haven't, they will require it, and will charge you (through the nose) for it. Then the proof of all your vaccinations (including the flu) will be in the (sealed) medical package you bring with you to the interview.

Incidentally, get your physician to check and make sure you're up to date on all your other vaccinations. For example, despite having been vaccinated as a child for measles, my immunization had degraded to the point that I had to have a booster. And if you need a tetanus booster (if your last one was more than 10 years ago) make sure you get the TDAP (the "AP" means "and Pertussis" (whooping cough) and you need that too). Your doctor can do a titre test to make sure you have everything you need.

No. They only look at the medical report from Knightsbridge and don't examine anything you bring in. (assuming you already had the medical??)

Plus your K1 Visa is not dependent on having shots. you could get a K1 with zero immunizations.

Don't be confused by the previous poster....different visa, different doctor, different consulate.

I guessed that was the case but wanted to check. I can get a flu shot if I feel I need it for $35 at the local pharmacy when I arrive back in the USA so it isn't much trouble anyway.

Rich have you had the medical already? Were you complete on shots and they were signed off by Knightsbridge? Complicated answer depending on what your DS-3025 says.

Medical was on 5th September and I was complete on shots. I had a tetanus booster and two MMR shots (4 weeks apart) back in March.

And your Varicella is marked VH because you had chickenpox?

And your flu is marked "not flu season"?

If so, good to go for AOS. Never need the flu shot as long as it was not flu season on the date of record. If your AOS takes you past Sept 5, 2015 some interviewers are sending people back for updated vaccination forms. However that is something you can't preempt and will have to see how it goes if/when the time comes.

From memory, my record was marked VH and 'not flu season' so I guess I'm good to go.

Just now waiting for the interview............
