Overall a pleasant experience, anyone who was worried about this like I was don’t be ! Took around 90mins in total and everyone was very polite. I even saw Wayne Rooney there getting a medical ( famous footaller ) 

I still need 1 jab from my GP as I couldn’t get it done there as I left my wallet at home by accident and only had cash. Anyone have experience with this? Heard it can be a pain once AOS comes around. Thanks!

If you do not receive all needed injections before or during the medical or you were not eligible for a insufficient time waiver:

 

Make sure you have your DS3025 and bring it stateside.

If getting the vaccination before leaving the UK, bring any proof of receiving it stateside.

If getting the vaccination in the US, keep proof of it.

Marry and AOS. For fulfilling the vaccination portion, you'll need to seek out a US civil surgeon. Try using the thread on VJ that discuss doctors in particular who do not rip you off or those who are familiar with completing the vaccination recertification ONLY. This can be tricky finding one that doesn't want to scam.

You do not need a new medical, blood tests, TB tests, or anything else no matter what a doctor tries to push on you.

Once you've found your civil surgeon, bring your proofs and passport, take the paperwork (I-693), and read the instructions VERY carefully. You are only required to fill out a portion of the paperwork. The civil surgeon will fill out only a portion of their section involving vaccinations to recertify. They will stamp and close it into an envelope which can be sent with the AOS.

Be further advised, if a US civil surgeon ever attempts to force you to have a TB test, having a BCG as a child (not given in the US) can cause a false positive. The CDC has guidelines about such individuals and what a doctor can do to avoid such headaches for the patient. If you ever get yourself into that situation, be prepared to pull out those guidelines for educative purposes.

 

You could also hold off and send in the AOS paperwork, without this. You may get an RFE of course, and you can choose to send in the vaccine stuff recertified from the US civil surgeon then. Or if you have an interview without an RFE requesting it beforehand, you can bring in the vaccination stuff then.

@Todd L F can I ask which vaccine? We have our medical next week & have been wondering about the varicella (we've had chickenpox). 

P.S. Thanks for the review. I've been stressing over this part.

I beleive it’s mmr2 I need, apparently I’ve only had the first one and there’s 2 shots needed. Just mention you’ve had chickenpox and you’ll be fine.
