I read recently that there have been issues with medical exams in Colombia with the 4 approved doctors charging $75 for each vaccination required. It raises some questions for me.

1. My husband does not have records of his vaccinations. Will he be required to get all 1 billion of the ones on the list?

2. If my husband did get the vaccinations at a different doctor, and brought documentation to the visit with an embassy-approved doctor, would they accept that?

Thank you!

When my fiance went to his he had his vac records from his doctors and he was missing 1 that they gave him. They did accept his records from his doctor. So as long as he has a record from anywhere else of what shots he has had they will only give the missing. He could get the missing ones from his doc before he goes..if he knows what he is missing.

He won't actually have to have all the vaccines on that long list. Many of them are not age approrpiate.

And regarding his lack of records, his doctor knows what vaccines they were doing the year he was born, and he probably has all those done, right?

I almost got some of my missing vaccines on that long list (my doctor offered) but I'm glad I didn't, as I ended up not needed any of them.

Did anyone know which three are required? I can only find the long list.

Sorry did not see that you asked earlier. Most those shots are combined into the three shots...they are just listed separately.

1 MMR is measles mumps rubella

2 Tdp is tetanus dipheria pertussis

3 Pneumococcal

4 Varicella for chicken pox if they've never had it. If you tell them you've had 99% of the time they'll forgo that shot

5 flu shot only if in season.

The first three are the required shots. Just make sure the fiancé tells them they only want the required ones and no optional ones.

***edit I could be wrong about the name of third mandatory shot but nevertheless there's only three required.
