AOS Interview- new medical?

Hello all, hoping someone will be able to shed some light on this for us. Today, over 14 months after filing our AOS from our K-1 visa, we received a notice for an AOS interview that is NEXT FRIDAY. We have multiple problems with that, a planned trip to see family across the country with non-refundable tickets being one of them, but our main concern is a notice that came with the packet: It says that "as of June 2014, USCIS has limited the validity period for all Forms I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, to one year from the date of submission to USCIS (he did his medical before the Visa interview in Italy in September 2013, before 5 months of AP). Based on these new regulations, your I-693 Medical Examination has expired. Please bring the attached I-693 Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record to your Adjustment of Status Interview."

Okay, so we need a new medical exam I guess. From what I have read previously with K visas all you needed was updated immunizations, not the whole thing, is this something that changed in June 2014?

But also- it says "Please bring the attached form to your interview". It doesn't say go get a medical from a civil surgeon and bring the completed form. Is there any chance they plan to do it there? Or is that just my wishful thinking making me read it differently?

Thanks so much to anyone that has any answers for me! I will be getting on the phone tomorrow about it- but let's be real, what are my chances of getting consistent, up-front answers?

Thanks all!

If you have a reasonable interviewer, he/she will not ask you for new I-693. Otherwise he/she will ask for an up-to-date I-693, RFE is expected there and then.

If you want to avoid hassles, put another $50 to have new transcribed I-693 just in case.
