Hi there. We are about to start our process. I've read so many posts about the Melichor (or something like that) doctor , saying she pretty much FORCES you to get the vaccines there with her clinic at a VERY HIGH COST.

1* Is there anyone who had the vaccines OUTSIDE her Clinic (other clinics, MINSA, etc) ?

2* Which vaccines are mandatory for the K1 visa ( I read somewhere influenza, tb, hepatitis and neumococo, true?) ?

 

 Thank you so very much!

Dr. Viviana Melinchon is only one of three options. Have you considered one of the other approved doctors? https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/Supplements/Supplements_by_Post/LMA_Lima.html#med_exam_instructions:

What vaccines are required for U.S. immigration?

 

At this time,* vaccines for these diseases are currently required for U.S. immigration:

  • Mumps
  • Measles
  • Rubella
  • Polio
  • Tetanus and diphtheria
  • Pertussis
  • Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib)
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Rotavirus
  • Meningococcal disease
  • Varicella
  • Pneumococcal disease
  • Seasonal influenza

*On December 14, 2009, the human papillomavirus (HPV) and zoster vaccines were removed from the list of required vaccines for immigrant applicants. All other vaccinations on this list remain.

 

Any future vaccines recommended by ACIP for the general U.S. public will be subject to the new vaccination criteria. If the recommended vaccines fit the new criteria, they will be added to the list of required vaccines for immigrant applicants.
