Which Affidavit of Support form(i864 or i864A) is needed?

Hi there. Our i130 was recently approved and have received the email from nvc with login information to our case. We have submitted the fees. The petitioner (my wife) has low income so she will be using Affidavit of Support from her uncle whose income very good. I wanted to ask whether my wife also need to submit the i864 form or only her uncle's i864 will required? Also, what will it be named; Co sponsor or joint sponsor? For her uncle, will he fill the i864A or i864ez or simple i864 form? Her father's income is also low. Should he be the joint/co sponsor along with the affidavit of support from the uncle? What kind of tax documents are required?

 

Also, in the form DS260, it asks whether I have vaccination record? I do not currently have but definitely I will get the vaccination during my medical. Should I choose No or Yes against the vaccination question? Moreover, should we fill the DS260 form first or the affidavit of support first? I am sorry these might be the very common sense questions but I really need to understand these basics before I fill up the forms.

 

You kind responses are welcome.

The Uncle (Joint sponsor) will submit his own I-864 with tax &supporting documents listed in the official instructions.  Your wife, as the primary sponsor, will also submit an I-864 along with tax & supporting documents.

"A few weeks after you have received your last Notice of Action indicating the approval and forwarding of your I-130 application to the NVC, the NVC will send your relative a packet of forms that you and your relative must fill out before your relative can be given an interview date with a consulate abroad. The packet will likely contain instructions to fill out the DS-261 and DS-260 online forms, by the intending immigrant. An I-864 form is also included that must be filled out by the petitioner (living in the US). The I-864 is the Affidavit of Support form that requires copies of the petitioners past 3 U.S tax returns (or tax transcripts which are free from the IRS) as well as any bank or financial records available (see the I-864 for exact requirements based on your case). The petitioner must make at least 125% above the U.S federal poverty to indicate to the U.S government that the intending immigrant will not become a federal charge to the government when he/she arrives in the U.S.. If the petitioner cannot meet these requirements, then he/she must still file an I-864, and find a joint sponsor who can meet the requirements on his/her own. When a joint sponsor is needed ,proof of their U.S citizenship or permanent residency is required. (i.e. copy of birth certificate, immigration status etc). The joint sponsor must be residing in the U.S, and he/she must also submit his/her past 3 years U.S tax returns along with bank or any other financial records available. The joint sponsor must submit his/her own I-864 form to accompany the petitioner's I-864 form."
