medical summary and inmunization records

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, i'm a 27 year old from Mexico, my husband is an US citizen and we are in the process for a cr-1 visa.
my problem is: my immunization records are missing (they used to print a card called cartilla de vacunación but they don't last 27 years so) and there's no way my healthcare provider (IMSS) have a copy. Also it's been a long time since i don't use their services so they haven't digitalized my medical records (and destroy everything on paper after 5 or 6 years) and i'm afraid my medical summary it's lost forever. There's anything i can do? all i have in record is an allergyc treatment for two years now with a private doctor.

we are still expecting to get our NOA2 but i'm getting all the files i need for the next step and that's the only thing i don't have. Please Help!

Yes, when it comes time for your medical, you can have the civil surgeon draw titers for all of the vaccinations required.  Those are blood test that looks for antibodies to the diseases, and the presence of antibodies usually confirms either that you had the disease, or that you had the vaccine.

I was unable to find my vaccination records when I was in the K1 process, so I was given the option of having blood tests done, or to receive the vaccinations again. I opted for the vaccinations.  I was then able to print out a record from public health to show I was vaccinated.  The only one that was troublesome was mmr as some people have bad reactions, but I just had to sit in reception for 20 minutes to ensure I didn’t have a reaction.  The rest are quick and relatively painless and there’s no danger in receiving them all again.

i guess i'll take the blood tests because i'm in an allergyc treatment, get the vaccines again it's not a great idea... do you know anything about medical records? what if i don't get any? 
thank you very much!

You can tell the doctor that you need the titers drawn if you don't have your records.  You may still be required to get some immunizations.
