USCIS MEDICAL EXAMINATION

What to bring:

  • Passport or VALID government issued photo ID.
  • COMPLETED USCIS Form I-693
    • Southern Medical Care does NOT supply this form.

  • Medical Records
    • Past and present medications and/or treatment records if you have a history of chronic or serious illness.
    • Immunization records will help determine how many vaccinations you will be receiving and consequently can significantly affect your final cost.

NOTE: Unless administered on the same day, there is a mandatory 30 day hold between vaccinations due to the risk of interaction. Therefore, if you choose to receive vaccinations elsewhere prior to your appointment we recommend that you proceed with all required vaccines in order to prevent delays in the completion of your paperwork.
