Adjustment of status: Another medical exam?

Timeline

I am a K1visa holder who is now happily married to my US husband and I have to apply for adjustment of status. In reading the requirements, it says I have to have a medical exam. I had one back in Canada and was given a package to bring to immigration at the airport once i left for the US. I was never given back any forms nor allowed to have copies, the only proof I have of already having a medical exam is my receipt and second medical package containing x-rays with the medical exam company stamp. I had all my vaccinations and have my records.

What I am asking is do I have to retake the exam and if not how do I prove I have had one done with minimal stress and cost?

Thank you

If your medical was completed within the last year you don't need to have a new one. USCIS has the copies of that exam from when you turned in your packet at POE.

However you will probably need to have a civil surgeon fill out the vaccination section of the I-693 (specifically Sections 1, 2 - the vaccination section only - and 5 (I think) - the civil surgeon's signature.) If you are missing any vaccines (like if you only got the first one in a series) you will need to have those COMPLETE before you can mail it in. Have those done, have the CS transcribe the information onto the I-693 (there's a decent list of CS's who generally don't rip you off here: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/231026-civil-surgeons-who-dont-rip-you-off/)

Close but not exactly right (the bolded section I mean).

If you had the start of a series in your home country you do not need to COMPLETE the series, you simply need to make sure you have had the next shot in the series making sure you are up to date at the time of filing AOS.
