Don't you need to fill a I-130 as well? Don't you need to submit a prove of vaccines and a civil medical examination too?

I-130 is for spouse visas (CR-1) so they won't need that. Also the vaccines proof was listed in the letter as the ds-2030-something that they would have given them at the medical apt, it's up to them to have a civil surgeon convert it to a I-693. Looks good from what I see.
