For families who are immigrating into the United States, there are a lot of questions. At Pediatrics of Long Island, we are proud to offer immunizations as required by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for immigration purposes. Our experienced pediatricians can answer questions you may have about immigration vaccinations to ensure your child is up to date on all of the required immunizations for the immigration process.
The first question you may have is simply which vaccinations are required for immigration into the United States of America? The full list of vaccines required by the CDC currently includes vaccines to prevent the following diseases: mumps, measles, and rubella, polio, tetanus and diphtheria, pertussis, haemophilusinfluenzae type B (Hib), hepatitis A and B, rotavirus, meningococcal disease, varicella, pneumococcal disease, and seasonal influenza. The goal of vaccinations is to help provide protection for individuals, families, and communities at large from dangerous preventable diseases. Because of rigorous vaccination requirements, many of these diseases have been all but eradicated in the United States, ensuring a safer and healthier life for all children.
The CDC requires that children and adults of all ages who are seeking to immigrate to the United States receive a medical exam. During this exam, you will be asked to provide proof that you and your family have received the required vaccines. If you are unable to provide such documentation, you will be required to receive the missing vaccinations at the time of your exam. At Pediatrics of Long Island, we understand you may have questions about the immunizations required for immigration. The vaccines required for immigration have been proven to be effective and safe to administer. We believe it is important for children of all ages to receive appropriate vaccines in order to support their health and well-being now and throughout their lives. If a disease is preventable, we believe every precaution should be taken to ensure your child never gets sick. The diseases referenced on the list of required immunizations for immigration can have devastating effects if contracted. Many can even lead to death.
The criteria utilized to determine the required immunizations for immigration purposes are that the vaccine must be age-appropriate for the person seeking to immigrate, it must protect against a disease that could otherwise potentially cause an outbreak, and the vaccine must protect against a disease that is in the process of being eliminated in the United States, or has already been eliminated. The goal of this immunization schedule is to ensure that families immigrating to the United States stay healthy and contribute to the overall health of the communities in which they live. Vaccinations are important not only for the individuals who receive them, but also for people in the community at large who may be unable to receive their own vaccines for other reasons. This includes people with compromised immune systems as a result of treatment for cancer or other diseases.
