Vaccine Expiring before AOS Interview

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm adjusting status from an F1 visa and sent in my medical with my application back in March. However, I realized that one of my vaccines (tetanus shot), which is valid for 10 years, will expire in July. We have not yet been scheduled for an interview and don't expect to have one for another few months. So my question is, when the interview comes, do I need to bring a completely new I-693 medical exam? Or can I just bring documentation of the new vaccine? A bit frustrating as I feel like the doctor should've caught that but oh well...

You will be fine provided the I-693 is not out of date. I asked my doctor the same question (though it was about the flu vaccine which changes every year) and she said that I would be fine as long as the form itself was valid, even if I didn't get a flu shot the following year (definitely get your shots though!). If your I-693 expires, though, you will need to get your booster first.
