Crossing the Border: Vaccine Waivers for Green Card Applicants

All foreign nationals seeking permanent residence in the U.S. are required by law to receive vaccinations to prevent diseases like Mumps, Measles, Rubella, and Hepatitis B. The vaccinations are typically administered during a medical examination by a “civil surgeon,” which is a medical professional specially designated by the USCIS.

Occasionally, an applicant may disagree with the vaccination requirement or find that they are unable to receive one or more vaccinations. In response to this reality, USCIS allows applicants to seek waivers in very limited circumstances.
