Where do you get Vaccination records, with original certification?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I haven't lived in England for years, but for my upcoming medical I need to have proof I've had my vaccinations. I've had them all done though when I was younger and still have my TB(?) scar.

 

I just don't know where I'm supposed to go to get them? I have no idea who my doctor was all those years ago and my mother never brought them with her either

You dont actually need it. The doctor will decide which shots you need. It's like..  it would be nice if you have it but doctors know what to do without it also.

Cheaper if you have them but as Roel said you can pay for what you need at the medical.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

i wasn't able to find evidence either and my GP just did the again and issued certificate which I then presented at the medical.  I didn't wait until my formal medical to get them. 


first met late 2016, met 13 more times since. Filed i-129 Apr 14th. NOA2 dated Oct 11th.

The doctor that currently holds your NHS records will be able to give you your vaccination record...I know you said you’ve not lived in the uk for years, but have you officially left? By that I mean, did you contact HMRC to let them know you were emigrating and did you let your doctor’s surgery know? For example, many people that live in other European countries don’t do this.

 

If not, theoretically, you should still be listed as a patient at your last doctors surgery in the UK - and they should be able to access your old vaccination records, even if they were done at a different surgery.

Is your medical in London or Dublin? 

 

I can only speak for what generally happens at a UK medical, but since you posted in the U.K. forum, I am answering.

All you need as an adult is:

Tdap Tetanus/Diptheria/Pertussis

MMR Mumps/Measles/Rubella

Varicella-- WAIVED if you tell them you had chickenpox

Flu--WAIVED because it is not flu season

 

You do not have to prove baby shots. So really all you will need to satisfy adjustment of status is two shots because two can be waived.  Go get them at your GP, Boots, a travel clinic, or at your medical and be signed off for AOS. You can get a K1 visa with zero shots, but you'll end up having a big hassle and expense seeing another doctor in the US to sign you off.
