understanding vaccination requirements

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good morning,

I have a list of vaccinations needed but i wanted to check a couple of things.

1. the age appropriate part- does this mean that me being 42 means i only need the ones that are listed as "yes" in the 18-64 years?

2. what if in the 18-64 catigory it says no but in earlier years it says yes? do i still need to have those if i did not have them when i was younger?

Thankyou for any help

much appriciated

Vicki

Here are the shots needed for 19 through 59 years of age:

* Td or Tdap - Tetanus/diptheria/pertussis or get DT, DTP or DtaP and it will be accepted for AOS also. The latest shot must be no longer than 10 years ago or you need a booster. If you have a record of receiving pertussis, then the Td is okay for the booster.

* MMR - (if born in 1957 or later)-Mumps/measles/rubella. It's two doses in your life, but if you get the first dose, and 4 weeks haven't passed by your medical, they will waive the second dose for "insufficient time interval". If you only had one dose as a child, get a second one before the medical.

* Varicella - Not routinely given in the UK . A history of having chickenpox excuses you from the shot. They take your word for it at the visa medical exam. Be sure they check the box that says "Varicella History" on the form.

* Influenza - Required during flu season only, October 1 through March 31. If your medical is not during flu season, you don't need it.

No catching up on baby shots needed.

Then he goes to his GP office and hopes they will give him tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis AND mumps/measles/rubella for free. Many do. Some charge. If the medical appointment isn't within the next 17 days, then it will be flu season so a flu shot is needed. You can also pay for shots at places like Boots, Tesco, or even pay extra for shots at the medical appointment. Knightsbridge has their price list posted http://www.visamedicals.info/us-price.asp. If you can get them free or cheaper elsewhere you just bring in the documentation.

I'm more of a K1 person so never keep up with what happens (timelines) at NVC for spouse visas. I know you are supposed to wait until NVC assigns your interview date, then make your medical appointment allowing at least five days between medical and interview so the results will be there by interview day. I think your visa appointment will be 4-5 weeks out allowing you plenty of time to get the medical done. They usually have very little wait to get in at Knightsbridge. There is almost always something open in the next week when you call.

A note on the immunization timing since he has no childhood shot records. If he goes now and gets MMR, and the medical exam is more than four weeks away, they will say he's due the second MMR. But if four weeks have not passed between the shot and the medical, it is not safe to have another MMR dose so soon. The second dose is waived for "insufficient time interval". He never has to get it.

He also does not have to worry about Varicella. He can say he had chickenpox and the shot is waived. On spouse visas, even if you didn't have chickenpox, there is a waiver for "not routinely available" which gets you out of the shot as well. Spouse visas have to be totally complete by interview since you get a greencard out of the process. "Not routinely available" Is acceptable in the UK because it is not something the UK immunizes for so they don't stock it very many places. It's an expensive shot too. It doesn't work that way for fiance's because they can wait and get it in the US (where it is available) before they apply for their greencard (adjustment of status). K1 ones need to say they had chickenpox.

You're just a few weeks behind me. Interviews for London CR-1 are dished out at the beginning and end of each month for the following month. So, at the end of September and the beginning of October they will be assigning the November appointments. This can mean they you have a long wait for an appointment if your case complete is just after they hand out the appointments. You have to wait for the next round.

When you say you've sent the IV package, do you mean the online submission of the DS-260 or the bundle of civil documents (birth certificate et al) that you have to send? Latest info from NVC says to send AOS and IV stuff together in the same package. I hope it doesn't cause any delays if you've sent separately.

*~*~*moved from "CR-1 spouse visa process and procedures" to "United Kingdom regional discussion" as topic has become very London-focused*~*~*

Quick question Nich-Nick, What if someone does not wish to have an influenza shot and there medical is during flu season will this result in a denial ?

Here are the shots needed for 19 through 59 years of age:
* Td or Tdap - Tetanus/diptheria/pertussis or get DT, DTP or DtaP and it will be accepted for AOS also. The latest shot must be no longer than 10 years ago or you need a booster. If you have a record of receiving pertussis, then the Td is okay for the booster.

It's two doses in your life, but if you get the first dose, and 4 weeks haven't passed by your medical, they will waive the second dose for "insufficient time interval". If you only had one dose as a child, get a second one before the medical.

A K1 visa does not require shots, so yes you can still get a visa.

You will have to deal with immunizations prior to getting a greencard however. If the timing works out and your AOS interview falls when it is not flu season, you could be excused. Or if you go have another medical for AOS outside of flu season, you would get a new immunization form saying "not flu season". Or there is a chance that refusal of required immunizations could result in denial of the greencard and you are expected to leave the US. Guess you will just have to wait and see how it goes with your AOS timing.

Thanks, that is helpful to know. I didn't think about the AOS and all that. Hopefully the timing will work out. Because I'd rather not do another medical with the civil surgeon.

Actually I just thought of another question I have. So my fiance sent me over his immunization records this morning from the doctor. It shows he has had;

-tetanus 3/20/2007 (within 10 yrs)

-diphtheria 3/20/2007 (within 10 yrs)

-measles(twice)

-rubella (once) I think this required twice?

-I asked him if he had chicken pox and his reply was that he had shingles would that also count? to get him out of Varicella shot

Does he still need ;

-pertussis

-mumps x2

-rubella x1

thank you :)

They only take your word for having chickenpox as far as anything I have read. Does he have medical documentation of shingles? I don't know if that counts anyway.

MMR is not so commonly available as single antigen doses so he may have to get the actual MMR combo to meet the requirements.

Knightsbridge will have to assess his record and decide about all of your questions. I can't guess what they will accept. And if he's skipping the flu shot, he's likely going to be seeing a civil surgeon so what Knightsbridge says doesn't really matter as the CS forms will supersede the Knightsbridge fax sheet for immigration purposes.
