Oh my, EF...My brother (from Germany) did an exchange year in Canada and that meant a lot of paperwork. What visa is EF intending on getting? (because then she can start looking for the appropriat exemptions)
Fact is: USCIS looooooves to force vaccines onto people coming in. She better starts looking for an "Amtsarzt", that is openminded- which is hard to find in an Amtsarzt....
She might want to start at rabeneltern.org-tell her to look for the forum. She needs to ask around what Doctor is openminded when it comes to vaccines, maybe they can direct her to other AP sites where she can find out about it.
She WILL need a visa to stay for a year, that's the problem. She is going to need exemptions for both USCIS (to get the visa) AND the school. That stinks.It really depends on the visa- my brother went to Canada, so that alone is different.
It might also be a hard fight with EF, I know how they made my brother run around. They are 2 routes: Fighting your way through EF, USCIS and the school. Or find somebody that is willing to sign her "Impfausweis" despite knowing she never had vaccines.
Can she at least get a "Titerbestimmung"? That might work in her favor-or not. I had a civil surgeon here in the US that pushed HepA, Hep B, and DTP Booster onto me, talk about a reaction, that day opened my eyes.
It'll be tough. I have an Austrian friend, maybe she can call her Doctor over there (she calls her Doctor in Austria after she had an awful experience with a Doctor here-maybe that guy knows something)
