I-693 question

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I've been in the US for about 2 weeks now and I was finally married with my fiance about a week ago. I am now going to apply for adjustment of status (AOS) but the lady said back in SLEC that I still have one vaccination that needs to be done and that needs to be done upon application of AOS. I've been going over the medical examination report they handed over me and trying to figure out what is the other vaccine that I still need to complete my Form I-693 to be handed to that civil surgeon. I've been give 2 vaccines in SLEC, it was Tdap and Varicella vaccine. Do you guys have an idea where to look on the document what is the other vaccine needed for AOS? Thanks so much for the replies.

The three that are usually age appropriate are Tdap, Varicella, and MMR.

So I have checks on Tdap and Varicella. But on MMR, I have a blanket waiver legend "D" on it and it is not checked. So should I still go to a civil surgeon for that vaccination?

I'm not sure what to do in this case. Hopefully others will be able to help you. Good luck!

I forgot one, the flu shot, which is seasonal.

Okay it looks like the flu vaccine for me has been totally waived. I just need to do some more research regarding the MMR thing with a "D" (not routinely available) remark.

If D means not routinely available in your home country, then that is one you will need to get here. It is widely available in the US. If cost is a concern to you, I would suggest that you google the public health clinic in the county where you live. Most offer low cost vaccines. I got my MMR for $8, while at Walgreens it was over $100.

When you got your MMR, did you also give the doctor your Form I-693?

I got the MMR prior to seeing the civil surgeon. I just went to the public health clinic in the county where I live. They gave me a print out showing that I had received the vaccine. I took that print out with me to the civil surgeon, who then completed the I-693. I didn’t do K1 process. I did everything from in the US. So I don’t know exactly what you need to do with regard to your situation exactly.

I see. The doctor just needs proof that you were vaccinated and with that, they will be able to complete the I-693.

You can do it two ways. If you are absolutely sure what you need to complete your vaccinations then have them done at the public health department (PHD) in your community. Be sure to get a receipt. Call around to inquire what it cost to have the vaccinations from your DS-3025 and your PHD receipt to transpose to a I-693. My wife needed the flu shot, went to Walgreens for $10 and brought the receipt to a CS. But before that she called around and was told by one Dr that she needed the entire physicals completed and he wanted to charge $500. We said no thanks and kept calling around. Found a Dr that knew what we needed and charge was $75.00 to complete the I-693. We submitted our AOS package and had no problems. So call around first for pricing.

You do not complete the I-693, the civil surgeon will complete it.  You bring the DS-3025 to the civil surgeon.   If there is a vaccination needed you will know at that time.

 

The number of vaccinations received varies with each person, some vaccinations are not required if you had the disease as a child

Right. I found out that the clinic inside the military base where my husband is assigned to can give the MMR vaccine, which is the one that I need, for free. So could it be any doctor who could fill out the form or is it only a certain group of doctors?

Yes you can choose any facility/Dr to administer the vaccination. Just get a receipt from them and return to a CS to complete the I-693. :thumbs:

All you need from the doctor for the MMR vaccination is a vaccination record form .. The doctor will know what you want.   

 

Only the civil surgeon completes the I-693 for AOS

 

 Bring the DS-3025 and the vaccination record for the MMR vaccination to the civil surgeon.   The civil surgeon will complete the I-693 and give you a sealed envelope.
