You need nothing as a K1, but getting signed off at Knightsbridge will allow you to skip a Civil Surgeon fee in the US (maybe). 

 

An adult needs four shots, but there are waivers.

 

  • 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. You can get a waiver.
  • Influenza – Required during flu season only, October 1 through March 31.

Not unless you're under 18.

No hep. Agree.

 

Try this source, the USCIS Policy Manual; the rules for your AOS adjudicator-

https://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/HTML/PolicyManual-Volume8-PartB-Chapter9.html

Scroll way down until you find the chart of vaccinations by ages. 

 

A second good source, Panel Physicians Technical Instructions. Scroll to Table 1 and pay attention to the age appropriateness.
