    • Description:
      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has specific criteria to determine which vaccines applicants for a United Sates Immigrant Visa (hereafter referred to as applicants) are required to show proof of having received.

      The panel physician must review all vaccination records presented by the applicant and, if documentation appears valid, record the vaccination history and vaccines given during the medical exam on the US Department of State Vaccination Documentation Worksheet (DS-3025). Both the panel physician and the applicant should be aware that the DS-3025 is the applicant’s vaccination record, and an extra copy must be provided to the applicant. The applicant will need to provide a copy of the DS-3025 to healthcare providers, schools, and other institutions after US arrival.
