Missing shot - civil surgeon??

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have another question. My wife did not get her TD shot series in the Philippines as the series was not available when she went to St. Luke's. Does she have to get the first shot of this 3 shot series before applying for AOS or can we go with what she's already gotten shot-wise? If she has to get at least the 1st TD shot, can she get that at like a county health department, or does a civil surgeon have to do this to her? Please let me know as soon as possible. We're wanting to call Dr. Arnold about transferring DS-#### to I-693/a, but do not want to be missing a crucial shot (if it is required, etc.). J got here on a K1 and had her medical exam/shots at St. Luke's back in August.

Also, do we need to fill out the name and address information for the I-693/a form or does Dr. Arnold do that for you?

Thx.

I'm fairly sure that, if shots are required, that you can get them done anywhere. A civil surgeon just needs to complete the 693/a. You would just have to send the document that she received the shots to Dr. Arnold.

I sent the 693/a to Dr. Arnold with the top part filled out, but I had that completed before I called. When I spoke with Tammy at their office, she said that they have the forms there, so it is not necessary as long as they have everything they need to do it.

The TD shot doesn't have to be give by a civil surgeon. You only need the CS to transcribe the medical records to the form. I got my shot through Kaiser (covered through by hubby's insurance policy for free).

But is there any requirement for AOS for her to get any missing shots from the DS-3025 (?) form before filing for AOS? As of yet, I have not gotten J put on my insurance yet, which is why I was thinking of trying to take her to the Health Dept. to get it done, but only if it is required. J doesn't like shots, nor do most people, and I'd rather her not get them just yet if she doesn't need them yet. Can we just have Dr. Arnold fill out the necessary information based on what was put on the forms in the Philippines?

If you send in an I-693a with your AoS application and the form shows you are missing some vaccinations that are required, then you'll get an RFE for those vacciantions. To save time due to an RFE, I'd go ahead and get the vaccinations done now, and then take the DS-025 and the report from the new shots to a civil surgeon to get a completed I-693a.

I would think that since J was granted a visa to the USA, she would be ok with her "required" shots...wouldn't that make sense? J also added that the shots are moreso required if the applicant is/was pregnant at the time of the medical. However, J was not and still is not pregnant. Thoughts folks?

I definitely agree! :thumbs: I had my TD shot taken from a private doctor last November 17, 2007 and paid 63 USD for a shot. However, I've known just recently that its cheaper to get it from the local health center and I even recommended it to a friend the other day and she just paid 25 USD for TD and 90 USD for Varicella. But, I am not sure if the fee is all the same in other states. Hope this helps.

If you're not aghe specific for a certain vaccination, then that's fine, you don't need to have it. For the ones that do apply to your age, you need to have them to be granted LPR status. A civil surgeon has to put their name to a vaccination that you do not need, either because its not age relevant, you have previously had it, or it is not needed in your area (such as Chicken Pox/Varicella vaccination not needed in the UK as its not available).

I don't know why Non-US Citizens are required to have these vaccinations, I just know they are.

I don't know why Non-US Citizens are required to have these vaccinations, I just know they are.

The following link is a list of USCIS required vaccinations for becoming an LPR - http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/men...0000ecd190aRCRD

For AOS, we want to make sure we get all we need in terms of the medical, especially the vaccination history. J's vaccination history was not able to be located by her childhood doctor and in the interest of her getting as few shots as necessary, could someone please let us know what exactly she would need before we file for AOS? I realize some of these vaccinations are done in stages, but what exactly must she have when we file for AOS? Below is what is shown on her DS-3025 and other misc documents.

DT/DTP/DTaP - "Not age appropriate"

Td - "Not routinely available" * - we're getting stage 1 of this next week

Polio - "Not age appropriate"

Measles/Mumps/Rubella - "Completed Series" 8-17

Hib - "Not age appropriate"

Hepatitis B - "Not age appropriate"

Varicella - Vaccine Stage 1 given 8-17, Vaccine Stage 2 given 10/27 (DS-3025 from 8-17 lhas checkmark on "Insufficient Time Interval")

Pneumococcal - "Not age appropriate"

Influenza - "Not age appropriate"

"Vaccine History Incomplete" is checked, as is "Applicant may be eligible for blanket waiver(s) because vaccination(s) not medically appropriate (as indicated above)."

The doctor "panel physician" did not print his name on her copy of this form, but he/she did sign it.

I understand that other folks here got RFE for TB test results. Since this is not indicated on the vaccination report, and J does not recall having this done with her medical exam, would this also need to be done next week, too? We want to have as few shots as possible for J, obviously, and not having her old vaccination history kinda concerns me. I know J either had polio or hep b vaccine when she was young, as there is a mark high on her right arm.

I know there probably aren't very many doctors out here, but any help/advice would be appreciated.

Another question I have that probably should go in another separate post is "do we have to submit multiple copies of her passport and visa pages, birth certificate, I-94, etc. since we are filing I-131 and I-765 together, or should we include additional copies to accompany those separate applications?" Some of the forms require the same documentation, and if all of this just remains in a single file for her, it would make sense just to include one copy for the entire packet. How do you guys recommend to proceed with this?

Thanks for all your help...

If you're not aghe specific for a certain vaccination, then that's fine, you don't need to have it. For the ones that do apply to your age, you need to have them to be granted LPR status. A civil surgeon has to put their name to a vaccination that you do not need, either because its not age relevant, you have previously had it, or it is not needed in your area (such as Chicken Pox/Varicella vaccination not needed in the UK as its not available).

I don't know why Non-US Citizens are required to have these vaccinations, I just know they are.

The following link is a list of USCIS required vaccinations for becoming an LPR - http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/men...0000ecd190aRCRD

Thanks for this...this helps somewhat. I'm just concerned that they will ask for her vaccination record for these shots and the record was apparently lost by her doctor...it would seem silly to give her the shots all over again, though. We'll definitely go ahead and get stage 1 of Td. Do we need to submit additional evidence via mail to USCIS once she receives stage 2 and 3 (if applicable)?

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: Philippines
Timeline
Hi, I have another question. My wife did not get her TD shot series in the Philippines as the series was not available when she went to St. Luke's. Does she have to get the first shot of this 3 shot series before applying for AOS or can we go with what she's already gotten shot-wise? If she has to get at least the 1st TD shot, can she get that at like a county health department, or does a civil surgeon have to do this to her? Please let me know as soon as possible. We're wanting to call Dr. Arnold about transferring DS-#### to I-693/a, but do not want to be missing a crucial shot (if it is required, etc.). J got here on a K1 and had her medical exam/shots at St. Luke's back in August.

Also, do we need to fill out the name and address information for the I-693/a form or does Dr. Arnold do that for you?

Thx.

Hi, 3 vaccinations are important as part of the I-693. These includes:

MMR

Varicella (chicken pox)

Td shots (given only in the US)

You don't need to complete 3 series of Td shot for the AOS, but it's better to have it completed to have a lifetime immunization. I had my Td shots given in a Health Dept. for only $5.

When i applied for AOS i only include the DS-2053 from St. Luke's, fortunately i didn't got an RFE. But i still had it transcribed by Dr. Arnold to I-693 for $10 for my interview. You will get it back in a sealed envelope including a copy for yourself in a matter of week. The interviewing officer didn't asked for it but i voluntarily offered it, i paid for it anyway for that reason.

Hope this helps. GOD BLESS!
