• Some questions answered about the Immigration Medical Examination
  • The Immigration Medical Examination is a mandatory process, one of the invariable parts in the overall Immigration journey. We had spoken some time ago, about the vaccinations that are required to be taken by the Green Card applicant. To refresh our memory, here is a list of vaccinations that are required for immigration purposes:

    • Hepatitis A
    • Hepatitis B
    • Influenza
    • Influenza Type B
    • Measles
    • Meningococcal
    • Mumps
    • Pneumococcal
    • Pertussis
    • Polio
    • Rotavirus
    • Rubella
    • Tetanus and Diphtheria toxoids
    • Varicella

    What is to be done if the Immigration applicant does not have a vaccination record?

    In such a scenario the panel physician will have to work with the applicant, in order to come to a conclusion as to which vaccinations he or she will need so as to meet vaccination requirements.

    Are there any exceptions where the applicant need not receive a listed vaccination?

    If the panel physician recommends then certain waivers are available. This will have to be discussed with the panel physician in detail.
