When I had my medical in the philippines, i opted to have my vaccine in the US.

yesterday me and hubby went to his family doctor for a general check up. Doctor gave me flu shots, tetanus and dpt. arent those the shots i needed for my aos since i havent gotten my vaccines in the philippines. The thing is the doctor has no idea what to do with my vaccine chart the one given by st luke.... What forms do i need to make known that i now have my vaccines done here in the US?

What forms do i need to fill out for my adjustment?

My k1 expires february 25, 2015.. Thats why i need to accomplish everythjng this month.

Thanks to everyone who will answer my questions... :)

The civil surgeon will know exactly what you will need. Download form I-693, page 5 is where the vaccination record section (http://www.uscis.gov/i-693). For me, I have my vaccination records from Philippines and US for Hepa A, Hepa B, Tetanus, MMR, Influenza . Then my doctor also indicated that I had Varicella (chicken fox) therefore i dont need that vaccine. The civil surgeon also indicated on I-693 that DT/DTP/DTap, Hib, Pneumococcal, Rotavirus and Meningococcal are not age appropriate and so I dont need them. The civil surgeon gave me IPV shot (pollio vaccine), I had it but no records so she just gave me a shot again.

Whatever you miss, the civil surgeon will give you the shot. But if you have insurance it is probably better/cheaper to get it from your doctor. The USCIS has the list of civil surgeons in your area (https://egov.uscis.gov/crisgwi/go?action=offices.type&OfficeLocator.office_type=CIV).

Your family Doctor may not be a Civil Surgeon. However, he needs to provide you with proof of the vaccinations that your were given, which you will need when you visit a Civil Surgeon for you I-693.

Only a civil surgeon can update your vaccinations that will be required for your AOS. You can go to the USCIS webpage and locate one if you haven't: https://egov.uscis.gov/crisgwi/go?action=offices.type&OfficeLocator.office_type=CIV

A Civil Surgeon can be a Doctor but any Doctor is a Civil Surgeon, they have to be selected by USCIS to conduct medical examinations.
