Here on a K1 visa and we are submitting the Adjustment of Status. Had a medical exam in morocco and the DS-3025 appears to be properly filled out and is noted as complete. However, under MMR it says "unavailable" and there is no associated medical waiver in the last column and the other 3 primary shots are all dated. Additionally, we were only given page 1 of 2 by the physician and have never had the second page. This was sufficient for the K1 but we'd like to avoid an RFE on the AOS

 

Based on this would we go ahead and visit a civil surgeon to get the MMR and and submit the portions of the I-693 for vaccines? Or, should the DS-3025 be sufficient?

 

Thank you!

My thoughts...

The reason "unavailable" isn't mentioned in the manual that the adjudicator uses. It does say this:

 

'If the required vaccinations were not received or not marked as “not medically appropriate” as of the date the medical exam was conducted, determine whether the missing vaccinations would still be required as of the date of adjudication.' 

 

Unavailable would mean they weren't received... so the adjudicator would have to determine if it is required at the date of adjudication, which at current the MMR is.

I would say to go ahead with a CS and i-693, since this vaccine is available in the US.

 

I hope that helps, good luck :)

Thank you! That sounds right. I wasn't able to find anything on "unavailable" except for a number of UK threads on a vaccine they don't do in the UK but do require in the US. 

 

I've been calling doctors here in the Dallas area and having trouble finding someone who will simply do vaccines instead of only do and charge for the full medical examination so I was hoping the current DS-3025 might be sufficient.

I think if you search "not routinely available" maybe you'll find some. Yes, that seems to be a problem. You can always try to mention to them that they are supposed to offer it since it is basically the same as them referring a portion of the i-693 to another physician. The vaccination portion is the only thing that is required since the USCIS already has an approved physical for you from an overseas physician. You might get lucky and get someone who will listen to reason. I really understand your hopes! I can't by any means guarantee that it wouldn't be sufficient, but I do think you would be at the very least a high risk for that rfe.
