Colombia Vacciness for stepson and mother

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance will be going to the embassy in Bogota for her medical at the end of the month. She lives in Barranquilla  Colombia, does anyone know the list of vaccines that are required for an adult? which ones a 10 year old boy would need? 

Any idea of reasonable places in Barranquilla to get these as we have heard they are expensive in Bogota like $100 buck each.....

Can you get the DS-3025 that shows the vaccinations are complete at the medical if you do them outside the medical exam? If not youll will pay for a transposing of your vaccination  to the I-693 once you are in the US for your AOS

Regarding the vaccines, if she's got EPS, she can get them with them or Red Cross, I'll suggest to do it with either of them since are reliable institutions and will be accepted by the doctors suggested by the embassy.

Ha, there are 3 embassy approved doctors. My wife had all the shots at the red cross. She had to get them all again from the embassy doctor, he said, he will not do the medical without so called booster shotts. It is a money issue, no shots no approval. Who you going to complain to. Then when AOS in the US came, same thing, no shots no papers. Maby there is water in them shotts, but you will pay for them, in Colombia and in the US

The panel physician is only interested in making money, and not in helping you to save money.

I'm not interested if the panel physician is going to make any money or not. What my interest is that I get the exact form filled out completely and noted at a reasonable price so that I can turn it in for my AOS. I'd rather see you contribute to the conversation rather than bad-mouthing it. Your opine adds nothing.

Like is been said here many times, every case is different, and something may have changed in 6 years.
