Original vaccination records required for medical examination?

Hi all,

 

I've been lurking for a couple of weeks and have found all your advice extremely helpful and reassuring. I'm currently awaiting Packet 4 from the US Consulate in Montreal and am looking ahead to the medical examination requirements in the meantime. 

 

One answer I couldn't find is whether original vaccination records are needed to demonstrate proof of required immunizations at Medsys. The reason I ask is because I'm a Canadian who grew up in Quebec and used to have the little purple "Carnet de vaccinations" immunization booklet as a kid, but it appears I lost it in a previous move. However, I had the foresight to scan the entire booklet in PDF form a couple of years ago and could print that out as proof for Medsys – my question is, will that be sufficient or will they insist on seeing the original booklet? 

 

Also, I've seen on the Montreal forums that some people brought a titre test to prove varicella immunity while others simply made a verbal declaration of having had chickenpox in the past. Can someone who's been there more recently confirm whether the latter was indeed sufficient? 

 

Thank you for your time! I'm hoping to come back and write a review of Medsys and the visa interview once I complete those stages.

Anytime you have a question concerning a process in your country it should be posted in the sub-forum section for Canada. 

 

To answer your question you should bring the PDF file of your vaccination record to your medical exam. They will accept it. Also, they will do any testing for vaccinations that will be needed. They determine that by a verbal, physical and from blood tests to determine which you will need.

They don't seem too fussy about how you provide it.

I went to see my doctor in the UK and they printed off things from their records - just scans of paper docs from when I was a kid (so some were from 40 years earlier). I also had a little booklet with some from a travel clinic when I'd have vaccinations to travel to South America, India etc. Anything you have just take it along and I'm sure they'll accept it.

Great, that's reassuring. Thanks for weighing in!
