DS-3025 Vaccine History Incomplete

Hi all,

My wife is here in the USA on a K1 fiancee visa and we married in the 90 day window. We are now filing for AOS. My question concerns the I-693. I've read the official instructions and the advice here in the Guides section.

My question is about the DS-3025. Section 2 is marked "Vaccine History Incomplete" and then under that another box is checked: "Applicant may be eligible for blanket waiver(s) because vaccination(s) not medically appropriate (as indicated above)".

Do we need to go to a Civil Surgeon and fil out the I-693 or not? This seems way too complicated... Thanks in advance.

I would say yes only because usually PI doesn't complete the vaccines.. I was told when I had my medical there that I was all set, and when I showed my records to the health dept here, apparently my Tdap shot was overdue. Chances are it might be the same. I mean to avoid getting an RFE, you might as well do it. Just find a CS and have them look at her records to see if she needs anything, and then trancribe it onto the I-693. She doesn't need to repeat the whole physical exam.

My Journey:

We met through a study-abroad program in Shanghai, China in August of 2009

We got engaged March of 2010

I received my K1 VISA in 6 months (June-December 2010)

We were married 04/02/2011
I received my conditional 2-year greencard (AOS) in 2.5 months with no interview (April-June 2011)

Our son was born 02/03/2013

I received my masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology 04/17/2013

I received my 10-year greencard (ROC) in 3 months with no interview (March-June 2013)

My husband returned from deployment 06/20/2013

My naturalization journey took 4 months (April-August 2014)

I became a US citizen on 08/01/2014

Received passport in 3 weeks (regular processing)

Thank you, VJ! smile.png

Yes you need to :)

Actually no you DON'T have to unless the shots are incomplete. I just posted another answer similar to this here: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/317330-vaccine-questions/page__view__findpost__p__4754564 It has the required shot list and the age requirements.

You can decide for yourself whether you want to risk just sending the DS-3025 (you'll just get an RFE) or if you want to try and play it safe with the I-693.. which doesn't guarantee that you won't get an RFE because they're known to lose your medical.
