More medical questions

My medical interview is next Monday... do they give us a copy of the contents of the sealed envelope?

The reason I am asking is that I have read that, for the AOS application, we need to show a civil surgeon the DS-3025 so they can transfer the information to an I-693A form, to avoid paying for another medical. Should I request a copy of the DS-3025 when I go for my medical on Monday?

Also, is the list of vaccinations on the Packet 3 checklist the same list required for AOS?

Any input will be much appreciated!

Dr. Chau in Saskatoon would not give me the DS-3025 after I asked him many times. He insisted that only the consulate must see that and the rest of the medical results. I even told him that I would need it for AOS and he said that all I had to provide that the panel physician there is my immunization records that I gave him. So, no dice for me! But, do ask for it at your medical - maybe your doc will give it to you.

I don't know about the immunizations for AOS in comparison to package 3, maybe someone will come around with that answer.

You don't need the whole medical for AOS for K1/K2 ,if you had one in the last year you just need the vaccination supplement .. You can read the I-485 instructions here: http://www.uscis.gov/graphics/formsfee/forms/files/i-485.pdf Good luck :star:

I received a copy of the vaccination worksheet from my civil surgeon and that's all I submitted with my AOS application. The rest is sealed up.

The copy of the vaccination record is paperclip to the outside of the medical and it specifically states on it that one copy is for the applicant. The rest of the sealed envelope you never see. I sent the copy of the vaccination supplement in with my AOS.

I went to Dr. Seiden in Toronto.

Yeap, just make sure to get a copy of the vaccination supplement, and that's all you'll need.

However, depending which doctor you're going to, you may be able to get a duplicate copy of everything for extra $$$. Some will, some wont.

I got an extra copy after I got an RFE for it for my AOS stuff. USCIS had "misplaced" the first one :P That was *much* cheaper than having another medical exam here in the US.

My doctor provided me with the photocopied immunization worksheet as well telling me I would require it later on for the AOS. Yes, the vaccinations listed for the medical are the same ones that are required for the a AOS. If you still need to get some vaccinations, go to your family doctor and have him/her do them before you have your medical, then take the proof of the shots along with any other of your immunization records with you to the panel physician, otherwise you will have to pay for them if you get them done with the medical and will definitely have to pay even more if you get them done once you get to the US.

I had the same experience, I finally got her to fax me a copy. She said she would not but finally did. They claimed they had never been told this before.

I just got my titre tests back, testing positive antibodies for Measles, Rubella and Chickenpox (Varicella). So that means I need the Mumps and Tetanus-diptheria shots (I am in the 18-64 range).

Well, I got my tetanus shot today, and my doctor said to come back next week on Friday for the MMR (since I need the Mumps shot and it only comes in MMR).

Now, my medical is this coming Monday, and I know I will be lacking the Mumps shot. Will this be a big deal if this is not on the DS-3025? Can I just show the civil surgeon in the US proof of getting the Mumps shot after the medical, and will s/he add it on to I-693A?

By the way, I just got my Td shot today, and as a "record of immunization", my doctor wrote down on her little pad (same pad she writes prescriptions on) the following, with my name on top, the date, and her signature at the bottom:

"Td vaccine given today"

Is this a sufficient form of an "immunization record"?

I know, that is what I'm going to have to do too! I'm sure they have been asked that more than once! :rolleyes:

"Td vaccine given today"

Is this a sufficient form of an "immunization record"?

I dunno. When I got mine, my doctor's office gave me the "official" vaccination card from Ontario, signed and dated by the doctor. In Ontario, its a yellow card with the list of the vaccinations on it, and they just check off which one(s) you were given.

Does the paper at least have the doctor's name and address and phone number on it?

I would think they're supposed to have some sort of official papertrail for those things, because dont' they have to send the info to the provincial health office as well? :huh:

Yes, it does have her name, address and phone number on it.

I also thought there was an "official" vaccination card. I asked her for one and she said all she could do was write it on her pad and and write it in my medical record.

From what I've been reading online it looks as if there is an official Manitoba card... but for children only.

I'm really worried that what I have will not suffice and there is no one I can call to find out because it's the weekend... which doesn't help because my medical is on Monday :unsure:
