Immigration Medical Exams - Frequently Asked Questions


What if I am pregnant?

If you are pregnant, you are required to have a medical exam, but some parts of it may be postponed until after delivery of your baby, depending on the circumstances of your case. If you have any concerns, you should discuss them with your family doctor before the immigration medical exams, with the Civil Surgeon, or with the Panel Physician.


What are the vaccination requirements?

You should have vaccinations for:

  • Mumps
  • Measles
  • Rubella
  • Polio
  • Tetanus
  • Diphtheria toxoids
  • Pertussis
  • Influenza type B
  • Hepatitis B

Note: If you are unable to submit all your vaccination records at the time of the exam, or if you have never had certain vaccines, the Civil Surgeon or Panel Physician can administer them to you. It is important that you do not try to fulfill your vaccination requirements before you meet with the Panel Physician or Civil Surgeon, in case it is not medically appropriate for you to have one or more of the required vaccines.

What if vaccinations are contrary to my religious beliefs or moral convictions?

If you have firmly held religious or moral beliefs that do not permit vaccinations, you may still be eligible for Adjustment of Status. You will need to apply for a waiver of vaccination requirements.
