How to keep my husband in US

Hi everyone,

Just before my husband (F-1 student on OPT, living with me in USA) and I (citizen) are going to submit I-130 and I485 to change his status, my husband got stuck at medical exam. Doctor insisted in asking him to take three shots of Hepatitis B in order to meet the requirement. But totally three shots require 7 months and by then, my husband legal status (F-1 on OPT) will expire and we could not submit our application.

What should I do in order to keep him in US? Any type of visa we should apply.

Many thanks.

Find a different doctor to do the medical? typically for AOS you only need the first shot of the series to be ok with AOS, but then have to finish the rest of the shots on your own.

Your I-129f was approved in 5 days from your NOA1 date.

Your interview took 67 days from your I-129F NOA1 date.

AOS was approved in 2 months and 8 days without interview.

ROC was approved in 3 months and 2 days without interview.

Hep B is not a requirement.

Hep B is a requirement if you have conditions that cause it to be required so you're not entirely correct. Here is the complete document that has the standard table on page 2, table 1 and the requirements which mean Hep B would be required are on table 2 : http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/PDF/wk/mm5901-Immunization.pdf

Get a new doc, or try to kindly point out that there is a box to check "insufficient interval between doses" which allows a medical to be complete without the immunizations to be complete (have to start the series as stated above).

I would follow Harpa's advice. My husband had to get all of his vaccines as he had no shot record, and he got a series of shots, then came back after a month for one more, and then they checked the box for the last in the series of 3, IIRC.

When I went for my medical they told me I could have a blood test done to see which shots I needed. They could tell if I had certain shots or antibodies already for eg..Chicken pox etc. I didn't want to have extra shots or antibodies if they weren't required as I knew I had most of my shots. In the end for me the test was cheaper than the shots I required and much more efficient.

+1 to Harpa Timsah's response.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Agreed.

I wasn't due for my third round of HPV vaccine when I took my medical and the doctor ticked that box and I had the shot a couple of months after the medical and there were no problems.
