Actual vaccines required for K-1 visa

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I’m sure this has been asked before but I can’t seem to find a concise list. So perhaps someone who has already had their vaccines done could answer. 

 

The embassy in Dublin sent my packet 3 with the following link for required vaccines. https://www.uscis.gov/news/questions-and-answers/vaccination-requirements

They list: 

  • Mumps
  • Measles
  • Rubella
  • Polio
  • Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxoids
  • Pertussis
  • Haemophilus influenzae type B
  • Hepatitis B
  • Any other vaccine-preventable diseases recommended by the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices

 

While booking my medical appointment in the Mater Private in Dublin, the person I spoke to said “We only require you to have records of MMR and tetanus.”

 

But then there is also the list at this link https://www.cdc.gov/immigrantrefugeehealth/exams/ti/civil/vaccination-civil-technical-instructions.html#assessment

which lists:

  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus
  • Pertussis
  • Polio
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Rotavirus
  • Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Meningococcal disease
  • Varicella
  • Pneumococcal disease
  • Influenza

 

Appreciate any answers to this.

 

And the best of luck to all with their applications.

You don't need to get all the vaccinations, the vaccinations you require are chosen according to your geographic location, age and season of the year by the medical physician. I live in Colombia and I didn't have any vaccines records so the doctor made me get 3 of them the same day of the medical appointment:  Tetanus, triple viral or MMR(measles,mumps and rubella), and varicella. I was suppose to get Influenza too, but they waived that one because it wasn't available in the moment. 

and also when I called for my medical appointment they adviced me Not to do them on my own in a different place, because the embassy prefers them being order from the physician, (which I think is just a way for the physicians to get more money from you...)

Good luck in your interview!
