My husband didn't have his either, when doing the DS-160 I don't know if it asks you if you have them, but on his DS-260 he indicated no, as he didn't have the records because the shots were all done through his schooling.

 

it is not 100% needed for him to take the records when he went in for his medical exam, just call around to the approved doctors and let them know you don't have them and ask if it is 100% needed or if so how to go about obtaining them.

I'm not sure if this will be of much help. However, you could try calling or emailing one of the approved doctor's and they might be able to point you in the right direction.

The DS-160 does ask this question. I was nervous but my fiancé put no with the note that plans were in place to obtain them before traveling to the US.

You only need vaccination records then the doctor can know what vaccination  you need. He'll ask what medicine you've taken daily for a long time. But maybe you don't need to bring medical records to the exam.That's what we do here. Call the hospital which will do your medical exam to make sure

Hi,

You will go to a Embassy doctor in either Cape Town or JHB. You don't have to have all your medical records or vaccine records. Don't worry about gathering everything.
