5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, how looks procedure for medical examination if I'm pregnant and is there any possibility that can affect my case somehow. I found out that I have to take tetanus diphteria and what are consequences if that is forbidden for my situation? My medical exam will be soon so I'm worried.

You can choose to get the vaccination at a later date.

 

"vaccinations are not required for K visa issuance..."

Tdap vaccination is safe during pregnancy. 

 

For the xray, the will take the necessary precautions 


YMMV

Tdap is not only safe it is highly recommended in pregnancy as it contains the whooping cough vaccine which is vital the baby has some immunity when born from the mom getting vaccinated during pregnancy my obstetrician insisted I had it again even though I had had it for my k1 three years earlier. Now some of the others that are required are not recommend for pregnancy such as the mmr but that’s a different kettle of fish.

This - they take necessary precautions for protecting the baby during the exam if you aren’t showing yet you must tell them (it’s on the forms but I wanted to reiterate the important of telling them).

Problem with this is that if she does do it in the us before or during aos a lot of the us based authorized doctors to complete the medical are refusing to do it without paying for a full medical again which she doesn’t need or charging over the odds if you ask just to do the vaccines and the vaccine form. Some people have found they are hours drive away from the nearest one as well and having a newborn and trying to do this will be a pain in the butt.

Ok, if Tdap is highly recommended I don't see problem 😊. Tnx you so much for your answers, I really appreciate that. I was really wored because I don't want to be alone during pregnancy.
