Is it okay to get some vaccines before medical exams?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I read that some vaccines require several doses and the accredited hospital will only give one dose during the exam to sign the form. 

 

By the way, i’m the beneficiary from the Philippines and we are just about to submit our CR1 application and I would just like to prepare and see the possibilities. 

 

I no longer have records of my previous vaccinations. I also don’t know which i already had. I’m going to ask my doctor if it’s possible to know which one I already had.

 

If ever I already know which vaccines I still need to get, is it okay to get some of the required vaccines before the medical exams? Just so I wont have the remaining doses in the US, where I think would be more expensive there.

 

Also, let’s say I didnt get some vaccines before the exams and I would need to have all those required vaccines, will St Lukes Hospital  administer it to me all in one day?

Thanks in advance!

St. Luke's provides all required vaccinations during the medical (day 2) .. there is no benefit to trying to get the necessary vaccination from a private doctor.    Relax, the system works

@Chub08 Hank is right. I would like to add that all vaccinations are included in the cost of the medical that SLEC gives.
