Okay, one more thing to think about

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So, my husband remembers having the chicken pox as a child, but has no visible scars. His doctor appointment is Tuesday and our interview is the 19th. Is this chicken pox thing going to be a problem? I heard that if they make u take the vaccine, it's a lengthy process... Can he take patrt of the vaccine (part 2) in the states? Will he need a vaccine if he can't prove that he had it with a scar?

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

If the doctor checks his blood to see if he had it, will they know right away??????

Yes, a blood test will show that, it takes like one hour for the results.

I know for my medical I had a titre drawn which showed I had immunity. But for the medical the US is worried about a person coming in with HIV/AIDS, TB, and some STD's. So as long as your husband doesn't have any of the above, he should be ok. Most doctors will draw blood if they have questions or concerns.

Thank you for the replies so far...

I am just starting to worry about every little detail now that we are SO close. My husband is Albanian and does not know the word chicken pox, but I explained what happens when you get it, and he explained that, yes, when he was about 4 or 5 he had what sounds like the chicken pox... I've never met an adult who didn't have 'em.

Like I said before, I just don't want the fact that he can't PROVE that he had chicken pox to be a problem. And I read somewhere that if you had it when you were VERY young, the immunity might not show up in your blood.

Thank you,

A. Voci

Why was it faster? I hear the chicken pox vaccine takes a couple of months to complete the series of injections....

Just wondering.

Thanks!

The varicella vax is a one-shot deal. Perhaps you are confused with the Hep series of 3 shots over the period of a year.

Congrats on getting the interview appt, Amy. Try to not worry so much!

Thank you so much to everybody for responding. I have read in several places that the varicella (chicken pox) vaccince took a few (series) of shots... maybe I heard wrong. I am trying not to worry, but with the interview so close, I just want to be sure EVERYTHING is correct and that we will have NO problems.

Ohhhh, my fiance hasn't had the chicken pox yet, and his medical is tomorrow! I didn't know there was a vaccine for that, but I'm happy to hear that it is just one shot. I will have to tell him about it today.

Well, I just got the email from my husband... he says the medical is done and there are NO PROBLEMS!!!! :dance:

I think he said in the email that he has the papers (I guess maybe these are what he will take to the embassy on the 19th???).

So, we are almost there.... I KEEP PRAYING!!!!
