Just wonder why some candidates can skip the OTEE directly go for interview?
Back in November 13 2018 I received an email from CBSA stating that i met the merit criteria identified for screening with my graduation with a minimum two-year college diploma from a recognized post-secondary institution (2 year Police Foundation College Diploma).

Which resulted with my candidacy being considered for the next step of the process which consist of the interview (Basically meaning I was exempted from the OTEE).

I guess the process had some changes in the last few years and are not accepting exemption anymore. I always thought it was a way to streamline the process to try and make it faster.
I applied at the same time almost and also have a PF diploma but they made me do the OTEE still.

I had a valid top secret clearance from the Navy. It will make the process faster but you still have to have the security interview with CBSA, no exceptions.

You basically need all regular immunization so I would say if you got regularly immunized through out your life I would say your almost good.

As for me I had to have the 2 step TB done, regular yearly flu shot and my MMR. But I wouldn't worry to much about that cause if you are missing anything you will be told during your medical.

I had my medical this morning and i haven’t had any immunizations since 2009, but at my medical they just looked over my records and recorded a few things but didn’t mention to me if i needed to get any.

It seems you got your answer already. If no official source tells you to do something - it's likely not required to do it.

I believe Immunizations are not mandatory in Canada in general, of course is best to have it than not, for the recommended ones see this : https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/ ... rkers.html
