Vaccination Requirements for Adjustment of Status for U.S. Permanent Residence: Technical Instructions for Civil Surgeons

HHS released new technical instructions for civil surgeons regarding vaccination requirements for adjustment of status for U.S. Permanent Residents.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) adopted specific vaccination criteria that would be required for any person who seeks an immigrant visa or adjustment of status for U.S. permanent residence. Previously, the amendment to the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) required that applicants for immigrant visas and adjustment of status receive all routine vaccinations recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for the U.S. domestic population.
