Do all vaccine series have to be completed before vaccination requirements are fulfilled?

For vaccines requiring a series, only a single dose is required for immigration purposes, except for the COVID-19 vaccine series.  For most vaccines, if administration of the single dose of a vaccine at the time of the medical examination does not complete the series for that vaccine, the “Insufficient time interval to complete series” reason will be documented to indicate that additional doses will be needed to complete the series for that vaccine.

Exception : Primary series of COVID vaccine must be completed before immigration physical
