Syringe Vaccinations for Electives

Hello guys,

I'm currently a med student from Central America planning to do electives in the US and have all the other criteria met except the vaccination forms, i currently have all the vaccines taken with few weeks already passed to get them IgGs but in my country they dont do titers and i have been investigating with different labs and the best offer i got her is to send it to Mayo Clinic through a doctor that used to work there, but these tests are qualitative, is there any US service i can contact who does this for IMGs?

You don't need to the antibody titers.

You can get an authenticated paper from your doctor saying that you have been vaccinated.

Also do PPD and have it read and get a report for that.

thanks for the reply, but there are some health entrance forms from several universities that ask for the dates, health report from the Dr. and titers.

It's not [AND], it's [OR]

You either supply them with shots record or if you don't have that then serology titers.
