vaccinations before medical

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I got my packet3 and is in the process of filling out the DS160 form. There is a question about having documentation in regards to vaccinations in accordance to US law.. now i know that I can NOT do the medical before I get packet 4 however can I get the vaccinations done in the meantime?

Since I have only a few of them, I can't really say Yes.

Has anyone answered NO and if so, what happened? Was the application delayed ? Were you made to get all ( or what was missing) at the medical? Did they make you get them AFTER you got into the US? etc etc

I mean doing the vaccinations over here would be cheaper, in that most would be covered by OHIP . If you get them done via their board doctor, does it cost? I believe from what I have read all other the net, just going to their board doctor is not covered under OHIP .

ps: I am going through Montreal.

Much appreciated.

Doesn't matter, just explain you'll have any vaccinations done by the medical date and ready for interview (which is really when they're due by.)


The cost of the vaccinations at the medical is never covered by ohip.

You can go and get the vaccinations completed prior to the medical....makes a lot of sense, especially if u can get them free....as they will make u pay for them at the actual medical. Take your vaccination booklet with you..or get whatever proof they give you,


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

HI , thanks for all your replies.

Sorry topic has probably been beaten to death but as you know , got to get all correct in the 1st place, right?!

1) getting medical file.. whether for the board doctor or for later use in the US... how far back /how much do you get from your own personal doctor?

2) I have read entries where people say that you don't have to get all vaccinations that is on the list but the board doctor would determine what you need based on your age. Is that correct? I mean HIB, as per the CDC(Center of Disease and Control)'s table of immigration, if you are from 7yrs and older , don't need or Polio if 18yrs plus.

ps: I got my packet 4 email; scheduled my interview and now trying to get info ready for medical which I have to schedule as well.

1) up to you. I didn't take any of my medical file to panel physician because I know the dates and reasons I've had surgery. I also didn't bring it to the USA.

2) it is always based on your age.. You need MMR (mumps, Measles, and rubella), Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) Varicella (chicken pox - verbal confirmation is okay), and influenza at certain times of the year.
