NYC Civil Surgeon

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a civil surgeon in NYC that will administer 1 varicella vaccination and transcribe the vaccinations from my fiance's medical exam in home country WITHOUT charging us the cost of a full examination?

This seems pretty ridiculous. Why do I have to pay $250 for a full examination when he just had one?

Go to the Forte Green medical center in Brooklyn. They administer most vaccines for a very low cost. Then go to see Dr. Anthony D. Blau MD in the city. He charges about $70. that's the cheapest I found.

Do you have a County Health Department? Their vaccinations tend to be very reasonably priced. Mrs. T-B.-to-be got her two missing ones via this route.

For other civil-surgeon possibilities, see this thread:

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/231026-civil-surgeons-who-dont-rip-you-off/

and start from the bottom (most recent) and work your way back.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

So he doesn't have to receive a vaccination from a civil surgeon?

No the vaccination does not need to be from a civil surgeon.

We paid $7 for two vaccines in that center.

We showed the civil surgeon my husband's vaccination record that included the two most recent vaccines from the health center and there was no problem at all.

He filled out the supplement form and we sent it for the AOS package.
