Notice of Proposed Vaccination Criteria for U.S. Immigration

Notice: This proposed rule has become final as of November 13, 2009. Please see Notice of Revised Vaccination Criteria for U.S. Immigration.

On April 8, 2009, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) posted a Federal Register Notice on proposed vaccination criteria for U.S. immigration. Currently, vaccines recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for the general U.S. population are also required for—

  • immigrants who seek permanent residence in the United States, and 
  • people currently living in the United States who are adjusting their status to become permanent residents. 

HHS/CDC is proposing specific criteria to determine which ACIP-recommended vaccines should be required for U.S. immigrants during the medical exam. HHS/CDC welcomes any comments and feedback on these criteria.
