Vaccination Exemption - Please help!

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am looking for some advice. I was recently approved by the USCIS (YAY!) and am currently waiting for the NVC to input my details into their system (Only to go and send my file straight back out the door GRR).

I've been looking at the vaccination requirements and I have concerns about one vaccine in particular. I was given this vaccine as an infant and suffered a severe allergic reaction to this. I have information about this on my medical history as proof. My question however is will the K1 visa medical note this on my medical record and if so will I have an automatic exemption when I attempt to adjust my status? If this is not the case will I have to apply for an exemption and how long does this take roughly? I read (from a source other than VJ) that it can add months to the process to get an exemption.

Any help is always welcome!

Many thanks in advanced.

Get a note from your doctor on the reaction and when you do the medical exam you'll get an exemption from the embassy doc and won't need to get the vaccine. You could also do the titers and show you have immunity already - then no need for vaccines.

There are waivers for contraindicated vaccines. You have medical proof that it would not be medically inappropriate to receive the vaccine. Take it to your medical exam. If you get all your needed vaccines or waivers signed off at Knightsbridge clinic in London then you won't have to see a civil surgeon for clearance once in the US. Save some $$.
