Hi everyone,

So a couple of weeks ago i had a MMR vaccination done (i know a second dose is needed after 4 weeks).

But the nurse told me i only need one dose because of my age group (16-60 or something).

So my question is - when i go do my medical, and i find out i'm required to get a second dose.

Is there a way i can be allowed to go back and get the second dose with that nurse, or would i have to

get it at the medical?

thanks

Never heard of anyone needing 2 doses of MMR and that's the main shot.

No they will not allow after medical you would have to be complete at medical so they would do it.

This is why it's best getting things done at medical alot of miss information, there is no 2 rounds

I believe HEP is 2 rounds months apart but that's not required.

Are you sure? because i remember reading a while back here on vj someone stating a MMR vac is two shots.

Also the nurse told me a MMR vac is two shots (4 weeks apart)...

You probably had MMR or something similar when you were a baby. This is a booster shot, not the first shot for you. (They changed the requirements in the 90s or something to need another booster since it's less effective over time and many people did not get it so the US just asks people in a certain age group for a booster).

The vaccine can not be given closer than 4 weeks apart is what the 4 weeks is about. Scenarios:

A ) If you have a record of MMR as a baby and another from a few weeks ago, you have two and are done.

B) If you had the first ever a few weeks ago and have your medical before four weeks pass, you get a waiver marked on your form for insufficient time interval. It would not be medically appropriate to to give another dose too close to the first. You never get the second (for immigration) because you have a waiver.

C ) If you had the first ever a few weeks ago and have your medical after four weeks have passed, Knightsbridge will say you are due for a second dose. You may pay for it then and there and be done. Or you can tell Knightsbridge to hold your file until you can get the shot free on NHS. Go get the shot and have the doctor fax the record to Knightsbrisge. Then they complete your form and send the medical file on to the London embassy.
