Default Innoculations

Hi,

I British, been in the USA for 18 months on an L1 just got my pack for the last stage of my Green Card and it lists a whole bunch of innoculations. Sheeeech I wish I'd known about these months ago I could have got started.

It infers that I might not need all of them but I'd like to be all set by the time I get to the interview/medical at the consulate in London. How do I know which ones that will expect and which they will not. I'd rather not have them all but I dont want to get their and find I am one missing.

Any advice?

Thanks

Mike

If you go through Consular Processing, the consulate will send you a list of the
required vaccinations with your Packet 4. You will have enough time to get the
vaccinations before the interview. The required vaccinations maybe different for each
country, and also depend on the age of the immigrant.

Hi Mike

Don't panic , your not expected to have all the vaccines listed , as far as i know your only required to have had the MMR and Td (adult form tetanus and diptheria )

Even if you get to the medical and find your missing some it's ok as they can be given whilst your there.

Hope this helps

What I have heard is that most working-age adults will get two shots, or perhaps
three: MMR (measles/mumps/rubella) and TD (tetanus/diptheria), and perhaps varicella.

If you want to check which immunizations you need, see
http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dq/pdf/cs_va_2.pdf, particularly Table 1 and Table 3. For
some countries, certain vaccinations may be unavailable, for example, varicella in
the U.K., and the person is simply excused from having the vaccination.

My wife is about to submit her fingerprints for residency...according to the INS, the
doctor she contacted, and our family doctor, she will need MMR, TD and varicella. She
already had MMR...she's going to get TD tomorrow from the local health department.
Varicella will have to be administered by the INS doctor (at a cost of $75 for the
vaccination alone).

You need to go shopping with all INS doctors in your area for this. In Boston area, I
found an INS doctor who charged a total of $25 per adult ( for 2 vaccines ). An INS
doctor in the town I live in quoted $150/adult for the same thing.

You don't have to use the INS-approved doctor; you can just go to your family doctor
or any other place that has these vaccinations.
