Your application for immigration and naturalization is a very important step and a part of the requirement is to complete your medical exam and necessary vaccinations and immunizations as required by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Dr. Narula is a Civil Surgeon with USCIS. He has been providing the services for the past 12 years. Our offices keep up to date with the requirements for an adjustment of status.
Section 341 of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 imposed certain vaccination requirements on all persons seeking green cards in the U.S. These requirements apply to persons seeking to adjust their status to permanent residence in the U.S. as well as to those who apply for immigrant visas to enter the U.S. if the application was filed after September 30, 1996. It does not apply to persons applying for nonimmigrant (temporary) visas. At the present time, the government is not applying the vaccination requirements to refugees.
Below is a list of required vaccinations and is subject to adjustments as directed by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Measles / Mumps / Rubella
Tetanus / Diphtheria / Pertusis (TDAP)
Chickenpox / Varicella
Steps involved in this process:
Call either offices and set up an appointment for a physical, at that time you will probably get a PPD skin test to check for TB exposure. If you have a positive reaction then you will need to get an xray done.In addition there is a blood test that is done at your first visit. vaccination status is assessed and if you need any vaccines they will be offered to you.
Please do not go to your own physician for this you need to see a Civil Surgeon who has been approved by the USCIS.
