The DS-260 form includes questions related to vaccinations. The specific question may vary slightly depending on the version or updates to the form, but generally, the question on the DS-260 form regarding vaccinations asks:
“Have you received any vaccinations or immunizations in accordance with U.S. immigration laws?”
The purpose of this question is to gather information about the applicant’s vaccination history and ensure compliance with U.S. immigration requirements. The applicant is expected to provide accurate and complete information regarding any vaccinations or immunizations they have received.
It’s important to note that the specific vaccination requirements can vary based on the immigrant visa category, the applicant’s age, and the applicant’s medical history. The U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) outline the specific vaccination requirements for immigrant visa applicants.
When filling out the DS-260 form, applicants should answer this question truthfully and provide details about the vaccinations they have received, including the type of vaccination and the date it was administered. If the applicant has not received any vaccinations or is unsure about their vaccination history, they should indicate so on the form.
It’s advisable to review the instructions provided with the DS-260 form, consult the specific vaccination requirements for your visa category, and seek guidance from the U.S. embassy/consulate or a designated medical professional to ensure compliance with the vaccination requirements for your immigrant visa application.
