    Hep B and if they are up to date with childhood imms. I don't think they need TB unless they are of the age to have at school. Should be ok if up to date will imms
    I would definitely check about the TB. I actually had a baby die from TB,that I cared for, so they are checking the children more frequently now. And we did not find out about it intil after he had passed. Many docs are now starting when the infants are just a few months old. I definitely would not be surprised to see the requirements change.

    Hi Suzanne

    I had chicken pox as a kid, and have some test results to suggest that i have immunity. however, recently i had a blood test which suggests that i don't have immunity anymore (??) - unsure why. what are the implications of this? i can't get an immunisation for this as one doesn't exist. will this pose a problem? it may have been a rogue blood test...

    Apparently if you come from the UK you will be ok with this one if you look at the requirements people coming from Uk are exempt as there is no available vaccine.

    Oh yeah you can loose your immunity for viral infections. for example German Measles, when I was a midwife and you do routine tests for Rubella sometimes you find somebody who tested positive the previous pregancy can prove negative in subsequent ones and need booster shot post delivery.

    Hi all
    I am just checking that all my vaccines are up to date ready for the medical (Re,green card, USA). found out from a friend that went for her med last week that despite having proof that she had immunity for Measels mumps & rubella, she was told she had to have 2 shots of MMR vaccine @25 each before he would give her medical approval report. This is also going to delay the report & may not be ready in time for her embassy interview! has any one else had this problem at medical? I now don't know if I should just go & get the shots from my GP ready just in case! Any advice?

    That is strange - I had my medical last september and didnt have to have anything. All I did was go to the GP and got my Titres done for measles mumps and Rubella...at that time it was sufficient. You need to check with the GP how much it will cost you to have them done..as it may be cheaper than having it done at the Embassy.Sorry I cant help you more...

    I had to have tetanus and diptheria. Do not worry they fedex the medical results to you and it takes a couple of days. When I had my medical last Nov, you couldnt take the result with you so maybe it has changed now?

    YOu dont need to take your children firstly, which is a big plus!:spin:
    And dont worry about the interview as they hardly ask you anything - just usually where your job is and that is pretty much it. Oh they did ask me when I had planned to go - and I said in 5 days time - they were really nice and said they would "try" and get our passports back for then............. which they did - they arrived the day before we flew - cutting it close!

    It is pretty much a foregone conclusion...as I have said to someone else before photocopy everything you have as we found this speeded up our interview process as they took all them and dont forget your Visascreen as when I had my list of things to take it wasnt on it but they do ask for it.

    For the interview you are standing at a booth for all of about 10 minutes.
