Many schools require international students to get their vaccines (留学生疫苗) done when they study in U.S.. In this article, we will introduce three vaccines in this article: Hepatitis B, Chickenpox, and Meningococcal Vaccines. You can do this after you purchase American health insurance (also known as 美国医疗保险). This is because the insurance company will pay for all your vaccine and you will spend 0 or very little money on vaccine. Here we highly recommend Huhu insurance (also known as虎虎保险 ) (one of the best international student insurance 留学生 保险), you can also use it during your opt period (also known as opt 保险 ) after graduation.
Hepatitis B vaccine
The hepatitis B vaccine is valid for 20 years, and the general US school generally requires a 3-needle hepatitis B vaccine record. Hepatitis B virus can be transmitted through blood and body fluids. When infected, the symptoms are white and yellow, fever, headache, vomiting, and many people will have no symptoms.
Chickenpox is not unfamiliar to the students, and the varicella vaccine is much simpler than other vaccines. American schools generally require freshmen to have a two-needle effective varicella vaccination record or have a blood test to confirm that they contain varicella antibodies. Students who have already had chickenpox can even apply directly to the doctor for a medical Provider Certified History with a date of illness and a doctor’s valid signature to avoid the vaccination.
Referred to as MCV4, the US must-have vaccine, meningitis spread through saliva, is one of the most harmful diseases. General American Schools stipulate that all full-time students must have a two-shot effective MCV4 vaccine record after 16 years of age. This vaccine is usually required to provide proof of vaccination when you live on campus. Basically all students in the school have had this vaccine. In addition to this, it is important to note that the US school attaches great importance to this vaccine. There have been precedents for banned the student dormitory for one month due to students who have not been vaccinated with meningitis.
