Hi All, waiting patiently on my NOA-2 (hopefully I’ll have that soon) in the meantime I’m looking into the vaccinations I’ll need. 

I have most of the vaccines, however a few of the vaccines required on the list only became available in Ireland in recent years.

I have had chicken pox and my doctor did a blood test which shows I now have chicken pox immunity, as a result he does not want to do the chicken pox vaccine on me. Is there a way he could write a letter or something which would prove that I am immune or will he just have to give me the vaccine anyway?

The second issue is that the rotavirus vaccine is only suitable for babies from what I can see. Does anyone have any information on that?

Thanks

As stated in the USCIS website:

 

Q. Do I have to receive all the required vaccines, even though I have been vaccinated before? 
No. The civil surgeon will review your vaccination records at the time of your medical examination to see whether you have proof of earlier vaccinations against vaccine-preventable diseases that are appropriate for your age category. It is important that you take any written vaccination documentation you may have to the civil surgeon  when you have your immigration medical examination.

 

If you lack any vaccinations required for your age category, the civil surgeon will administer the vaccines as needed. In the alternative, you can also choose to obtain the required vaccines from your private healthcare provider. However, because only a civil surgeon is authorized to complete the vaccination assessment on the Form I-693, you must return to the civil surgeon with the proof that you have received the missing vaccines.

 

In addition, some individuals are immune to vaccine-preventable diseases, and they know of the immunity because their private healthcare provider has tested them. If you have any written evidence of immunity, you should take this documentation to your civil surgeon. This will enable the civil surgeon to determine which vaccines you need to receive.

The USCIS vaccination guidelines are based on the CDC vaccination recommendations as currently mentioned by the ACIP. Suggest that you google CDC vaccination guidelines for accurate information.

Hey , I literally just had my medical in the Mater in Dublin - in the email they said the only vaccines they actually require are 

 

MMR - Records of these can be obtained from your local GP or HSE.  (I got mine as a baby in australia and didn't have the paperwork in Ireland so I just got another one)

 

Tetanus- within the last ten years, if longer booster is required. 

 

That was what they listed on the email they sent me after i booked my medical.

 

Also, in relation to chicken pox literally all you have to do is confirm it orally - the doctor while giving the phsical examination asks you a series of questions and it is enough to just say yes or no to the chicken pox question.  

 

Hope this helps

Collect all documents you have about your vaccines and the test result of antibodies in your blood. The USCIS approved doctor should know what to do with them. Also not all vaccines are age appropriate and you will get an exeption on such vaccines.

*~*~*question about the medical moved to “embassy discussion”*~*~*

 

What do you mean by “all the vaccines”? For adults, it’s only:

 

- MMR

- Tdap 

- varicella (doesn't apply everywhere - the UK, for example, doesn’t routinely carry the varicella vaccination so in such cases it’s sufficient if you have had chicken pox)

- flu vaccine (but only if immigrating during flu season)
