Immigration Medical Exam Guide: What to Expect
All vaccines must follow CDC (Centers for Disease Control) & ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) guidelines for children and adults.
Two visits are required to ensure that all elements of the exam are completed including understanding one’s medical history, vaccine requirements, and a physical and behavioral exam.
At the first visit, our expert immigration medical specialist will review your application and ensure you meet the eligibility requirements for the immigration medical exam. Bloodwork and a urine test will be done to check for communicable diseases. Vaccinations are subject to availability, but at check out, you will receive a list of any further vaccines that must be acquired to schedule the next portion of the Immigration Medical Exam. These can be received through either your local Health Department or your family physician.
Additionally, if testing reveals that an x-ray is necessary for the exam, you will be asked to complete it before the second visit. All records and test results must be provided to us for you to be scheduled with our Civil Surgeon for the Immigration Medical Exam.
