For Immunization details of the children,the Immunization card from India will do or do I need to get a certificate from the Doctor.Why I ask is I was checking the Envelope in which the Passports and COPR came,there is a paper which show the name has to be filled and,then the vaccines and down there a statement which say I Dr so & so certify that XXXX has taken all the require vaccines etc.
Please let me know if the card is enough or I need a letter also?
1,Immunization card is acceptable,provided child details, all vaacines names,dates, LOT numbers( if present better for certain vacccines) are written in english and its legible.if this is not the case i suggest u to get immunization certificate from any General Physcian or Pediatrician.
if cetain letters r numbers in immunization card hv faded,its better to collect immunization cettificate in this case also.
2.Imminization certificate is must in all other cases except above mentioned case.
Immunization card or certificate requirements :
1.child details like name,gender, dob,birth wt, birth ht( optional) etc,including parents names sd b present.
2.all vaccines names sd b written in clear english,running hand writing sd b legible(advisable to get typed if taking certificate).
3.date of vaccination sd b written clearly.
4.LOT numbers for certain vaccines,if present better.
5.imm. Certificate issuing doctor's name,designation,signature and stamp sd b clearly visible on letterhead.
6.imm.card sd hv signatures or tick marks against vaccination dates.
If immunization card or certificate is not clear, then suspicion arises and child will b subjected to rpt of certain vaccinations,although its harmless,it can b avoidable.
