Vaccines before the interview

Is it true that all the vaccines or none are required for the beneficiary to leave the country. Wondering as this interview for Rio becomes closer since my fiancé said that she read something in the group she is apart of about vaccines in Rio stating this.

Technically no vaccinations are required for the k1.  


YMMV

At the medical they're supposed to determine if she has all the necessary vaccines. If she doesn't have them all and she refuses to get the missing ones (at medical they should give the missing ones) she has to get a I-693 done here for AOS and that's way more expensive. So I would advise to get all the vaccines she needs at her medical (if she needs any, a lot of people already got the necessary ones)

All of this.

 

I know it is tempting to make the process shorter while still in Brazil but leaving the vaccinations for later will cost you during AoS here in the US. It’s not easy to live in one income and unlike what happens in SUS in Brazil, you can’t get vaccines for free.  

 

I was able to get all my vaccines in a Posto de Saúde, for free, and in a few visits. I would strongly recommend that your fiancée does the same.

vaccines in Rio

She doesn't have to get them as a K1 . . . 

But get the shots in RIO that the panel physician suggests.  It will save you time and money rather than getting in the US.  Keep the copy of the medial record for later. They will give her one.

 

Don't get them before the medical at another facility.

As long as the vaccination record is brought to the medical they will be transcribed onto the DS 3025, so getting them before is perfectly acceptable

What is there to elaborate?  If you have had any vaccinations prior to the medical either as an infant, child or adult.  You bring the record to the visa medical and the panel physician will record the previously received vaccinations on the DS3025 .

When you just say "medical" I'm not sure if another word should be added to that because usually in college someone says "medical facility or medical so on...". Therefore, I asked to elaborate so I understand. I don't understand why so many smart comments here. Everyone is different.

I had my medical Feb 21st. They have expressly mentioned it several times that a K1 applicant is NOT required to have any vaccinations whatsoever and may refuse shots being administered during the medical. There was a respective box on a form they gave me. I ignored this box, had flu done right during the medical and ended up not being immune to measles which I need to do upon arrival, as it is not available locally. The same with the kid, got flu shot and he needs meningococcal which is not available here

What people need to be aware is this. No, you don’t need to have all the vaccinations  to pass the medical examination for a K1 visa. You only need to show you have all the vaccinations when you apply for Adjustment of Status after getting married here in the US.

 

That being said, it looks like some people think they can simply go to a pharmacy or Walmart here in the US, get all the shots, and take the document for a civil surgeon to sign. Not all civil surgeons agree to do that, tho, and might require a new medical examination that they can endorse. 

 

As long as people are aware that vaccinations are more expensive and more time consuming when they are left to be taken here in the US, they might as well do as they see fit.

 

For those people residing in Brazil, it is very easy to go to a public clinic and have a doctor evaluate what vaccinations are required for the person’s age, and then get them for free.

 

Obviously I can’t speak for residents of other countries, so ultimately just follow what applies to your particular situation.
