I have taken all my vaccination, but do not have DS-3025 completed. Do I still need to submit I-693 at AOS?

So I believe I have completed all my US vaccination requirements based on the vaccination list and my vaccination record. However, as I did not provide my vaccination record to my doctor at my home country where I completed my medical exam, I believe it is marked as incomplete on my DS-3025 (which they took away at POE as I have NEVER received a physical copy). However, since my vaccination record can prove that i have completed my vaccination requirement:

1. can I just submit my vaccination record along with my AOS application?

2. Am i required to have my vaccination record to be examined by a CV who can complete the I-693 for me in my case?

3. If turned out more vaccination is required, it will be stated in the RFE right? Will it then delay my EAD and AP combination card?

Thanks in advance!

My understanding is that you have to have a USCIS-approved doctor have a look at your vaccination record and fill in either the DS-3025 (before the K-1 interview) or the I-693 (before submitting AOS). Immigration officers are not supposed to know the equivalent US vaccines for the ones you had in your home country.

I know the names of the vaccines are different in France than they are in the US. A regular US doctor won't know what vaccines I've had by looking at my French record (that's what the doctor told me at my K-1 medical).

I would go see a civil surgeon here before submitting my AOS if I were you.

So to sum up I would say:

1) No.

2) Yes.

3) Unsure about that one. They might just ask you to bring the I-693 at the interview. I would guess it might not delay EAD/AP since they're different applications. Just a guess though.

If you entered as a K-1, you still need to have a vaccination supplement completed by a civil surgeon in the U.S. This would be Page 9 of Form I-693 only, to be submitted in a sealed envelope with your adjustment of status application.

You need the I693 vaccine section filled out by a USCIS approved doctor. The case officers are not medical professionals and can't evaluate if your foreign records meet the requirement.


If it isn't difficult, it isn't worth it.

That's not quite true. It depends on how your DS-3025 was filled. See the thread below for details:

If you did not have the vaccinations marked off on the DS-3025 at your K-1 medical, then you will need to see a civil surgeon to get any you are missing and them all transcribed onto an I-693.

Many K-1 adjustment applicants do not need to see a civil surgeon. It depends on whether or not you had all the required vaccinations marked off on a properly filled out DS-3025 at your K-1 medical.

And more than Page 9 of the I-693 would need to be filled out if you were in need of seeing a civil surgeon.

Thanks guys for the quick response! In short I will need to see a CS to have the I-693 filled out properly. Thanks!
