    Hi Vaishu,
    I don't think any vaccination is mandatory. USCIS recommend to take but it is not must thing. I had Tetanus but not MMR. Women who are trying for baby or breastfeeding mom, they are not advisable to take MMR. I guess you are fine.
    Here is the link which will explain in more detail http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/I-693.pdf
    Wish you good Luck!!

    Re: nursing moms-Vaccinations for greencard?

    Hi Vaishu,

    No worries. There are special privileges given to nursing moms as well as pregnant women.

    I know my neighbor who delivered her girl baby a month back too is filing her I-485 and did not get MMR vaccination. You just need to get a letter from OB/GYN or Paediatrician to say you are nursing and MMR is not to be given to you.

    By the time you get to the last status of getting the green card, you just clear your left out vaccinations.

    Good Luck!

    Hi,
    Tetanus vaccine is safe during pregnancy ,even I had one in germany.It is imp during pregnancy so don't worry.But MMR is not given if u want to conceive or to pregnant ladies.

    Re: nursing moms-Vaccinations for greencard?

    Vaishnavi ,There are USCIS certified physicians to do medical tests .Vaccinations can be taken outside which can be mentioned with USCIS physicians reports that its taken .But the examinations have to be done by USCIS certified physicians.They know the exact format to send medical forms to USCIS. I did the same and usually lawyers suggest the same(Our lawyer did).It avoids taking tests again which can be quite an expediture.
    Ask your physician whether this can be done.
