Have you tried calling various independent or small walk-in clinics?

In addition, you might ask some pharmacists for ideas of where to go.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

Try walgreens and see if you can use your insurance. I used mine for my wife and it was covered under our policy. They have their clinic centers and they take most insurance unlike the walk in clinics that you have to pay directly.

94 isn't terrible for a vaccine. That is exactly the price the CDC says a dose of varicella costs.

Unfortuntly you can not just go any where for the MMR shots...You have to go to a doctor that works specifically with immigration I know because I have been there, I am now presently working on taking off my conditional residence for my 10 yr greencard...if you google doctors for immigration MMR shots you will find one

Nonsense - I-693 has to be filled by civil surgeon but shots can be taken anywhere. I did mine in local grocery store (Kroger) mini-clinic.

OP - this is relatively normal price for a vaccine in US, better get used to it...

Thank you everyone. I don't have medical insurance. So far I have checked the Health Department and Walgreens. Health Department 94 dollars, Walgreens 145 dollars. I have another question. His mum told him he has had the chicken pox shot already but the paperwork was destroyed in a fire at his primary school. Would it be ok to just get a titer and put it on his exam paper from the civil surgeon?

There isn't no nonsense about it that's how it is here.. I don't know where you live but here in the United States you have to have ALL SHOTS done by a civil surgeon which is through Immigration....and I also had to have a physical check up at the same time , all together it cost me $85 for the shots and $285 for the physical...and I wasn't talking about the I-693 I was talking about the I-130 for marriage and also for the I-751 for removing conditions of residence....

Again - complete nonsense. Civil surgeons sent me out to get shots elsewhere. It is the case with most of them, including this topic where OP is looking for cheapest place. Stop providing bad advice, you do not have to get vaccinations from civil surgeon - he / she just needs to see proof those had been done.

There is no medical for I-751 so I have no idea what are you talking about here - clearly you're confused.

I NEVER SAID I HAD TO HAVE A PHYSICAL FOR THE I-751 I SAID I HAD TO HAVE IT FOR THE CR-1 (MARRIAGE) AND AS FOR BAD ADVICE I happen to know what Im talking about I have been through it and this is what I was obliged to do here in the UNITED STATES...As I stated earlier I don't know where you live but each country has their own laws and regulations....I am a Canadian who has married an American and that s how it works here and I am more informed on this compared to you, as we had a real immigration lawyer help us two years ago with the process and this is how we had to go through a civil surgeon not just any where to save a buck..Ever wonder why some people are not accepted that's because they have a hard time following rules and regulations of the countries they want to stay in....
