Vaccinations for AOS

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We are in the middle of the AOS process and just received an RFE to submit the vaccination portion of form I-693. I have a copy of my husband's vaccination work sheet from his medical that was done in Egypt. I want to know if there are any missing vaccines before going to the civil surgeon since I have a feeling it wasn't filled out correctly by the civil surgeon in Egypt. This is what is stated on the vaccine sheet since for some reason I can't attach the image.

DT DTP DTAP (no checks) = Not age approproate

TD (checked) = Date Received 09-30-2012

Polio-OPV IPV (no checks) = Not age appropriate

MMR (checked) = Date Received 9-30-2012

Rotavirus = Not age appropriate

Hib = Not age appropriate

Hepatitis A = Not age appropriate

Hepatitis B = Not Routinely Available

Meningococcal = Date Received 09-30-2012

Varciella = Not age appropriate

Pneumococcal = Not age appropriate

Influenza = Not Fall (Flu) Season

At the bottom the civil surgeon checked off Vaccine History incomplete - Applicant may be eligible for blanket waiver(s) because vaccination(s) not medically appropriate. Does anyone know if he will be required to receive additional vaccinations?

Wrong thing was spotted!!! Varciella = Not age appropriate. If he got Varciella when he was young, it is marked "VH" or he needs to take vaccine.

Very common mistake by foreign panel doctors.

After lots of research, I found this page and decided to post it here to help anyone else who may encounter these questions in the future. http://www.cdc.gov/immigrantrefugeehealth/exams/ti/civil/vaccination-civil-technical-instructions.html#i693There is a table at the bottom that lists which vaccines are required for each age group.

Thanks again NancyNguyen for your help.

We did this too. We did not yet get an RFE, but the doctor in Egypt also marked varicella on my husband's as "not routinely available". Apparently this does not suffice for a waiver. Our primary care doctor happens to be a civil surgeon and our insurance covered the varicella. He went a couple weeks ago and got influenza and first varicella dose, and has an appointment in a couple of weeks for varicella dose #2. There are 2 doses required for AOS. We are doing all of this based on trying to get it done before they ask for it since the varicella doses have to be taken 4 weeks apart. We don't want to delay anything if they ask us later. Anyway,

hope this helps. Yes follow the CDC technical assistance to civil surgeons link.
