Attention Adults: We strongly advise obtaining a blood titer to check for immunity (antibodies) before getting a MMR and/or Varicela shot.
For those adults choosing to obtain vaccines at a different location outside of our office: It is our company policy to first examine each patient before obtaining any vaccines.
Required Immunizations by USCIS/Immigration Services:
VACCINES ARE EXPENSIVE AND MAY CAUSE YOU TO EXPERIENCE UNPLEASANT SIDE EFFECTS. HERE ARE SOME ALTERNATIVES:
Blood Titers: A blood titer immunity test provides quantitative measurements for IgG antibodies to viruses such as Varicella, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, etc. This test is used to determine if a person has protective antibodies to several infectious diseases. Most people around the world receive all required vaccinations when they are young. A blood titer can help a person determine if they are immune or may need a booster. Results from this test are useful for people who are not sure if they have been vaccinated or need to prove if they have immunity from prior vaccinations. Reasons to obtain a blood titer vs. a vaccine include:
Generally cheaper than vaccines
There is no risk of experiencing side effects
Positive blood titers are accepted by USCIS/ Immigration, all major universities in the USA and Health Care industry.
