<div style="font-style:italic;">Tari: I'm filing for removal of conditions just this week, and no, we don't need any more vaccines nor a new medical, at least something good huh? But we get to pay the new fee (they raised them July 07 by nearly 60%!).<br><br>
I know that the age cutoff for Gardasil is 26 according to USCIS, I read it somewhere on the immigration forum websites. Gosh I am so happy that I don't need it, if it had been there 2 years ago - oh my!<br><br>
I wouldn't be surprised if some states will make laws that everybody needs to be vaccinated such as New York calls CPS on you if you refuse the vitamin K shot and eye ointment... Believe me it is terrible, I have had that the first 7 years of my life in Ex-Eastern-Germany. Medical care including vaccinations were mandatory and completely out of the hands of the parents - you couldn't even refuse that your child participates in a medical trial/study. Making vaccines mandatory is one of many steps towards such a dictatorship and I really find it concerning.</div>

I agree with you there. I am 23, so still fall into the age group that it is recommended for, but the thing terrifies me. They in no way did enough research.<br>
My midwives asked if I wanted it after my daughter was born, I said no. They asked why, I told them the above, and they told me "But they studied it 6 years!" I said, get back to me in 20 and tell me how the women who got it are fairing, then I will think about it :p<br>
I am glad to hear I won't need a new medical or the vaccines though! I didn't have my records from my childhood vax as we moved a million times and immigration made me get every. single. one. again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">They made you think they were, of course, but they really weren't. This fact was clearly stated on Form I-693 (the previous version, of course, which I have a copy of if anyone is interested).</td>

I certainly thought it was mandatory in 2005/2006 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I got MMR when my daughter was ~3 months old and nursing. Luckily I did have my childhood records, so I didn't get more. Our immigration lawyer said it was mandatory. It was the reason our interview had to be delayed because I was pregnant and could not have the shots (and the chest X-ray) earlier.<br><br>

I thought it was mandatory too when I was applying for my greencard in 2005 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
