Medical Form or Vaccination Form only?

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Slovenia

My husband and I are unclear about what, exactly, to send with our Green Card Application.

The official instructions provided with form I-485 read:

"if you are a K-1 fiancee who had a medical examination within the past year as required for the non-immigrant fiancee visa, you only need to submit a vaccination supplement, not the entire medical report."

By contrast, visajourney.com's own "Tips for Filing for AOS" guide (http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1aos) reads:

"if you are a K-1...visa holder the I-693 instructions state that you are not required to have another medical examination as long as your Form I-485 is filed within one year of your overseas medical examination. Regardless of if you are exempt from a medical exam, you are still required to complete certain portions of the I-693 and have a Civil Surgeon certify the form (and seal it in an evelope). Specifically, you will complete Part 1 (Information about you) of the I-693 and provide both the form and your DS-3025 (if you have it, proving your vaccination history) and any proof of required vaccinations that were completed prior to entering the US."

Can anyone kindly clarify what, precisely, needs to be filed? Can we apply for the Green Card with solely the vaccination record or DS-3025? Or must a civil surgeon sign off on it only through the I-693 (I don't see that form on Visajourney.com, by the way).

Thanks so much for your help.
