When to get necessary vaccinations during I129f/K1 process?

Recommended Posts

Hello! My fiancé and I are both just stumped as to when he should get his vaccinations updated or just a new medical exam. We are about 4 months in to waiting for our NOA2, and I believe he should get his vaccinations before we get accepted (hopefully accepted ;~;). He is in Ireland, but unfortunately, his mom seems to be antivax, so he is unsure if he got his vaccinations when he was younger. We’ve been told here on the site from a few different people to wait until the interview phase to get vaccinations and the medical exam then, and told also to just get it now, which is why we’re stumped on what to do. Help would be much appreciated, thank you so much!

Some you may be able to do, but also may end up just getting them again later, hence why people here will tell you wait until the medical prior to the interview and receive them properly and properly annotated.

I see, that makes sense. Is there some specific place to do it if we chose to do it now, or would any doctor work? And should we also just ask for a record or copies from the doctor that show that he got his vaccinations? Thank you btw 🙂

You can get vaccinations anywhere and bring the record to the medical for transcription onto the immunization form


YMMV

Hi Kozano, your fiancé should contact his local HSE records office and request copies of the vaccines he received as a child. These will include the ones he received in and any others that the hSE was notified about. He can find his local office here https://www.hse.ie/eng/health/immunisation/whoweare/requestrecord.html

 

My local office posted me a copy of mine within 3 days.

 

Personally, I am waiting until I know that my application is with the Dublin Embassy before I get mine. I had considered getting them as soon as I could but really, having the date they were given as close to the medical is best in case you need them to still be in date at a certain time when you’re in the states. 

 

It’s a matter of calling a doctor and checking that they have those vaccinations in office or you can arrange an appointment at your local Tropical Medical Bureau. 

 

Hope that helps. And best of luck!
