Vaccination Requirement

United States immigration law requires immigrant visa applicants to obtain certain vaccinations (listed below, age groups also given) prior to the issuance of an immigrant visa. Panel physicians who conduct medical examinations of immigrant visa applicants are required to verify that immigrant visa applicants have met the vaccination requirement, or that it is medically inappropriate for the visa applicant to receive one or more of the listed vaccinations.
In order to assist the panel physician, and to avoid delays in the processing of an immigrant visa, all immigrant visa applicants must have their vaccination records available for the panel physician’s review at the time of the immigrant medical examination. Visa applicants should consult with their regular health care provider to obtain a copy of their immunization record, if one is available. If the applicant does not have a vaccination record, the panel physician will determine which vaccinations are needed to meet the requirement. Certain waivers of the vaccination requirement are available upon the recommendation of the panel physician. Only a physician can determine which of the listed vaccinations are medically appropriate for the applicant, given the age, the medical history and the current medical condition.
