Default Hepatitis B vaccine needed?

I have been looking into which vaccinations are required prior to entry into the US. Looking at the

http://www.kamya.com/interview/intro.html

link, in the UK interviews section, it is mentioned that at the London medical, her two daughters were seen by a doctor:-

She advised that they would neeed Hepatitis B vaccinations - I had not realised that this was a course of 3 shots and she stated it was important to get the first done asap (the first and second shots must be no more than one month apart, the third is after 6 months) as they would definitely be needed for the girls to enter school in the US.
Does anyone know if that is still the case? This interview experience was in October 2000, and I have not seen anyone in the NG mention this recently, and wondered what other people's experiences have been. Neither my daughter nor I have had Hepatitis B vaccinations.

Thank you
Dbark.

D,

The INS-approved UK physician will determine what vaccinations are required for immigration to the US. On the Vaccination Supplement form, (s)he will certify that the person has been given each of the listed vaccinations or which of the listed vaccinations are unnecessary.

The local US school district where your daughter will attend school will independently determine what vaccinations your daughter must have in order to attend school in accordance with their own requirements.

In most cases, a school district's vaccination requirements for attendance at their schools are more stringent than the INS's requirements for immigration. It is quite possible that your daughter will not need Hep B vaccinations to immigrate, but she will need them to attend school.

Regards, JEff

If you are over 18 you do not need HepB vaccinations. If your daughter is
under 18 she will. She will need them to enroll in school. Hep B
vaccination requires 3 shots, she can start the series in the UK and
complete in the US but the school will expect evidence that she has had the
series or is in the process. (1st shot is followed 6 wks later by the 2nd,
and 6 months after that the 3rd). I would advise that you start the series
for her in the UK if your doctor/practice nurse agrees to give it for free
or cheaply, will save you some cash. We got ours free in the UK.

Hi,

Thanks for your replies. My fiance is phoning the local school today, to check on this. If my daughter does need the Hep B series of shots, we shall begin them without delay!

Thanks again,

D.
