Medical Procedures/Immunization interaction with antibiotics?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm doing my medical tomorrow (wish me luck for a smooth sailin). Anyway, I have an appointment with my ortho-dentist next week for a dental procedure (root canal and braces in a few months) and it requires prophylaxis of antibiotics to prevent infection . I also need to be under local anesthesia but I'm not too worried about that. I'm concerned most about the interaction between the vaccines and antibiotics. Idk which vaccines specifically I'm going to be getting if I (hopefully) don't  have to undergo sputum (fingers crossed). If they're going to be viral I guess  it's  not a big of a deal because I'm taking clindamycin anyway (antibacterial) but I'm not sure exactly.

 

I wish they provided this info online.

 

Also, I've read somewhere there's  gonna be varicella vaccine? I've had the chicken pox back when I was 12 (12 years ago) and I don't  have any visible scars except for this deep one on my eyebrow (which  could easily be mistaken as an acne scar). 

 

thanks for taking your time ;)

 

TLDR:

Which specific vaccines are required for the k1 visa will they interact with my antibiotics for upcoming dental procedure? (In 1 week)

 

and... Would someone who's had chicken pox before still need to get the varicella vax? 

 

Thank you

No vaccinations are required for k1.  I would do them however.  They will do a medical history,  if you had cpox you won't get varicella.   Most likely just mmr and tdap 


YMMV

Here is the list from CDC, normally at SLEC they administer 3-4 vaccinations.

 

https://www.cdc.gov/immigrantrefugeehealth/laws-regs/vaccination-immigration/revised-vaccination-immigration-faq.html#whatvaccines

 

 

(for those saying vaccinations aren't required, true you may be able to sidestep them at SLEC but the required vaccinations will still be needed for AOS later in the states where you will have to pay for them)

 

Who will be affected by the new vaccination criteria?

The new vaccination criteria apply to all applicants who seek legal permanent residence in the United States. This includes those examined overseas and those already in the United States who want to adjust their visa status to become a legal permanent resident.

Here are a couple of relevant links:

It doesn't mention any (nor have I ever heard of any) reaction with antibiotics. If you have an illness, the illness itself may prevent you from being able to get a particular vaccine, but this is due to the illness not the vaccine. Keep in mind that most all vaccines are safe, effective, and have few or no side effects. Don't let the list scare you - most of these side effects are extremely rare. Of course, consult with a doctor if you have any concerns.

Thanks for the response. I am not scared of the vaccines, fortunately (:P). Now that I know which ones they are I am quite confident! (I just finished the medical a few days ago). I just wasn't sure which ones were going to be administered  so that's why I was concerned about possible interactions (as one should be!).

but all is well, thanks for everyone's responses! I'm getting my root canal tomorrow 😁
