Hello everyone,

My fiancee just had the medical exam at IOM done yesterday. Today, she went to the Quarantine Service and had the blood test and 3 vaccination shots taken: TD, MMR, and HBV. When it was done, she was given the yellow paper and another slip with dates for 2 additional rounds of vaccine shots to be taken. One is dated 1 month from today and the 2nd is in 7 months. The slip does not indicate what type of vaccine would be taken at the next rounds. She will have the interview at the end of this month. Are these additional rounds of vaccination required before she come to the U.S, or can these shots be taken when she gets here?

That's most likely the HBV shot. You get 3 shots for HBV which are placed at 1-month and 6-month or so interval. I think she can definitely have the the third shot in America I've read about it on forums.

Thank you very much, Natalie :). My fiance lives in Hue so I think we will wait until she gets here to get the 3rd vaccine shot for sure. For the second shot in 1 month, would she be able to have it done at a medical facility in Hue instead of traveling back to Saigon again?

Maybe she can call the quarantine center and ask to be sure. I know that you'll have to bring thr vaccination documents to a doctor in america to transcribe to some form certifying that she's completed all the vaccines so in theory it doesnt matter where she gets those shots. Check aroubd the forum as well. Best of luck!

She will be able to finish up in the states. A lot of private insurance covers vaccines 100% just another reason to wait till she gets here. Warning though when she arrives you will have to find a Civil Surgeon to update her I-693 vaccination paper work which she will bring over in a sealed envelope. There are a lot of crooked civil surgeons out there that will want to do a complete physical at a very exuberant price when she only needs the form updated and maybe a vaccination or two depending on her age. I called several ones that insisted complete physicals($600-$1200) which I knew was baloney. I found one that was honest and updated it and returned it to me sealed for a cost of $26 dollars. Good Luck!

Thanks for your help guys. Most likely we will wait until she gets here to do the follow up vaccine shots. I will start looking for a reputable Civil Surgeon around my area.
