Occupational Health Vaccine/ Blood Test - Will Embassy Doctor Accept It?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Upon checking my GP records, they are useless. They have no record of me having chickenpox. I saw sure my mum had mentioned it in the past but I’m not in contact with her anymore, and my dad can’t remember.

I work for the NHS and sometimes come into contact with patients, so I contacted occupational health and told them I was no longer sure of my immune status.

They gave me a blood test and emailed me to say I’m immune. Will the London Embassy Doctor accept this? It was from her Trust email with her email signature and contact details. I’m hoping this will suffice.

What do you all think?

 

Thanks!

A titre test?

Yes, the clinic in London will accept it. They also will accept “My Mum said I had chickenpox” with no written proof needed. Furthermore,  even if you never had chickenpox, you would be given the waiver for “not routinely  available” because the UK does not immunise against varicella.

Yeah a titre year.

She said I’d only need the two vaccine doses if I wasn’t immune

Ah nice! Thank you 😊 

Always assumed they’d be strict for some reason

Hopefully they’ll let me pass for the Tdap when I tell them my GP lost my secondary school vaccine records. It would still be in date as it’s not been 10 years just yet 😂

I think its highly unlikely theyll let you pass with no documentation on Tdap, if its been a few years then I believe a booster is fine, but talk it over with the doctor.

Wishful thinking more than anything.

If I have to get it again then it is what it is

Thanks for your help ☺️

 Nope, Varicella is the only thing they waive without written documentation. It is especially easy in the UK because almost everybody has chickenpox since they do not immunise for it. 
 

You will need a new shot. In the UK they give Revaxis for the Td booster. It contains polio along with the tetanus and diphtheria. You don’t need a polio shot, but as long as the T and d parts are there, you are covered.

I don’t think that you will pass without any proof that you had Tdap. Besides, all records even old one should be in entered in the healthcare system. So, any GP in your country could easy access them in case it is required. So, contact your GP, and ask him to recover all your records about vaccines. Besides, you might need them somewhere else. For instance, when I visited this https://cameronmch.com/services/occupational-health/ occupational health center, they asked me for my previous records. I think it is right think to do, because your new doctor should be aware about any your illnesses, allergies or vaccines. Especially now, during the COVID19 period.

This is an old thread and the OP has been in the US for 5 months now. You are correct that all jabs need documentation except history of varicella (chickenpox) does not need written doctor confirmation.
