Vaccination K1 VISA

Don't worry about the vaccinations.  The panel doctor will administer what they feel you need based on the examination and tests regardless of what your records shows.

When applying for a K visa you are not required to get vaccinations - according to technical instructions for panel physicians

 

website https://www.cdc.gov/immigrantrefugeehealth/exams/ti/panel/vaccination-panel-technical-instructions.html

Vaccination Documentation for Nonimmigrants

The vaccination history of all applicants submitting for an examination by a US panel physician should be reviewed and vaccinations they have previously received should be documented on the DS-3025 Form, even if they are nonimmigrants who are not required to meet vaccination requirements prior to travel to the United States.

Although refugees and K visa applicants are not required to receive vaccines before traveling to the United States, they must meet the vaccination requirements when applying for adjustment of status or permanent resident status in the United States. Therefore, for these applicants, panel physicians must complete a DS-3025 Form if the applicant provides reliable vaccination records. A copy of this form must be provided to the applicant for use as his or her vaccination record in the United States.

Usually cheaper to do it at the initial medical phase.   Otherwise you have to use a civil surgeon in the states.

This is is accurate but somewhat misleading answer because while you are not required at K-1 stage, you do have to show them during Adjustment of Status stage. https://www.uscis.gov/i-693

It is usually easier and cheaper to get those done before leaving the country even of they not legally required for K-1 visa part.

Some vaccines are covered by insurance in US and others aren't. What I would have to pay in Denmark is way more than I will in US because they will be covered by my then husbands insurance. Also there can be quiet a long time between when you do the medical for K1 and the medical for AOS. Necessarry vaccines are free in Denmark but the list of vaccines considered necessarry in US is way longer than here and since they are not considered necessarry I would have to pay for them. Also it is actually more expensive at the panel doctor than at my own doctor for the same vaccine. 😊
