You make an appointment with a "panel" (can be found from USCIS list) civil surgeon, and show the consular (for K-1 or K-3) nonimmigrant visa if it was within the prior 12 months; the physician will determine if shots (or titres) are needed and mark these down. You will get two copies, one in sealed envelope (to be given to USCIS at interview).

I suggest you call around to as many civil surgeons as possible in your area, the fees can vary by a considerable amount. I would also suggest you take the xray from the embassy physcial with you too. The CS we went to wanted to do another xray so I whipped out the one Claudeth had from the embassy and saved us thirty five bucks. Good luck
