Only the vaccinations, as far as I'm aware. Go to the UK regional forum and there is a K1 guide, very comprehensive and well put together, which includes links to what is required.

You need the MMR and tdap. MMR is two shots but if you get the first, they will let you do the second stateside as you are k1. And now it's November you need the flu jab which isn't free on the NHS unlike the others. £16 from Tesco or a Lloyds pharmacy.

I heard you should get your vacs from your reg doc first before the medical so you dont have to pay.

Also is there anything else you can get done with the NHS first?

What vacs are needed? Thanks.

Do NOT wait to complete immunizations stateside as Cathy suggested. Bad, bad idea.

MMR shot- if you have no record of vaccination, get the shot. Two shots is the requirement. If you have one on record from childhood, then get another. If you have none on record, get Dose 1 right before the medical exam. You will be given a waiver for "insufficient time interval" and never have to get Dose 2. The time interval between doses is 28 days (4 weeks) so if 28 days has not passed, they can't give another dose at the medical and will mark the waiver on the form.

Td or Tdap - Tetanus/diptheria/pertussis or get DT, DTP or DtaP and it will also be accepted for AOS also. The latest shot must be no longer than 10 years ago or you need a booster.

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. Make sure you tell the nurse asking about your immunizations that you had chickenpox so she marks the waiver.

Influenza Required 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. The list on the London embassy website is out of date since 2009. Dont follow it.

Sorry, didn't mean to mislead. All I meant was you can get the first MMR and not worry about the timeframe because they will waiver it, hoping you do it stateside.

The flu shot at the medical is £22, so unless your employer reimburses you for that (mine did :D) then you might be better off getting it cheaper elsewhere. Just make sure you take the documentation you're given regarding it to the medical or they'll give you another!


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

 

September 26th 2016: I-751 package sent to CSC

September 28th 2016: Package delivered
September 30th 2016: Check cashed
October 3rd 2016: NOA1 received with receipt date of 09/28/16
November 3rd 2016: Biometrics received with appointment date of 11/14/16.
November 14th 2016: Attended biometrics appointment
October 30th 2017: Infopass appointment to get I-551 stamp
February 26th 2018: I-751 case number (aka the NOA1 receipt number) becomes trackable
March 14th 2018: Submitted service request due to being outside of processing time.

March 15th 2018: ROC approved. 535 days (1 year, 5 months and 17 days)

March 29th 2018: Card being produced

April 4th 2018: Card mailed out

April 6th 2018: Card in hand. Has incorrect "resident since" date. Submitted service request on I-751 case (typographical error on permanent resident card) and an I-90 online.

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

August 8th 2018: Card in production thanks to the direct involvement of Senator Sherrod Brown's team

August 13th 2018: Card mailed

August 15th 2018: Card in hand with correct date. :joy:

October 31st 2018: Potomac sends out a notice stating they have closed out my I-90 per my request. Yay for no duplicate card drama.

It costs about the same here (New York). My wife just got hers and it cost me $32. She did not need it for her AOS; I just wanted her to have it so she would not get sick.

They give proof that you got it so you can show the Civil Surgeon that you did. Still better to get it all done by the time of your med so they can mark the DS-3025 as complete, so you don't even need to see the civil surgeon.

You might need that proof to get jobs here in the health field or child or elderly care because they worry you can transmit the flu to your patient.

You need them before if you don't want to pay.

You may pay crazy prices in the US trying to get a civil surgeon to sign off on a new form. You can't send proof from your NHS doctor with your AOS. It has to be all on the form from Knightsbridge, or a new one signed by a USCIS approved civil surgeon in the US after he adds the shots you chose to get after the visa medical.

Read these posts from people who did not get shots done in advance of their visa medical.

These are just examples of a gazillion from many countries that I have read and replied to.

It would be easier to put a completed DS-3025 in you AOS packet and not have to go through these experiences.
