The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) adopts specific vaccination criteria that would be required for any person who seeks an immigrant visa or adjustment of status for permanent residence. Therefore, all applicants must be up to date their vaccination before filing I-693.
If you have a vaccination record (i.e., proof of vaccination including the name of vaccine, date, and provider) and all vaccine requirements are met, our provider may not ask additional vaccination.
If you had certain vaccination but do not have the record, a blood test could be performed for evidence of immunity.
In general, adults aged between 18 and 64 are required to have following vaccination: Tdap, MMR, Varicella, & annual Influenza(between Oct 1st to March)
Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis): It is good for 10 years
MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
Varicella (Chickenpox): If you have had a history of varicella, vaccination can be waived but required to test immunity by blood test.
