Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Yes vaccinations are done for crossing border , however you may have him tested and screened for any illness.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
