Full I-693 vs. VPO: Understanding Their Roles

Full I-693 vs. VPO: Understanding Their Roles

The entire I-693 process and the Vaccination Portion Only (VPO) service are essential components in U.S. immigration medical requirements, but they differ significantly:

Full I-693 Process:

  • Comprehensive Medical Examination: Includes a physical examination, tuberculosis testing, and a medical history review.
  • Vaccination Assessment: Ensures all required vaccinations are up to date.
  • Lab Tests: These may include blood tests for infectious diseases like syphilis.
  • Form Completion: A civil surgeon completes and signs Form I-693, a 14-page document, which the applicant submits to USCIS.

Vaccination Portion Only (VPO) Service:

  • Limited Eligibility: Only certain applicants undergoing an immigration status adjustment qualify for VPO, for example, many applicants with K-1 visas. It is your (or your legal advisor’s) responsibility to determine if you are eligible for this limited service. The civil surgeon does not determine your eligibility.
  • Limited Scope: Focuses solely on verifying and administering required vaccinations.
  • Vaccination Record Review: Evaluate existing vaccination records to determine any missing vaccines.
  • Partial Form Completion: The civil surgeon completes and signs only the vaccination section of Form I-693 (pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 12, 13, & 14 of the 14-page form).
How Does VPO Work?

How Does VPO Work?

The Vaccination Portion Only (VPO) service helps immigrants meet U.S. vaccination requirements for their green card applications. Here's how it works:

  • Record Review: Bring or email your existing medical exam documents to the civil surgeon for review.
  • Vaccine Administration (if needed): If you need some vaccines to meet USCIS requirements, the civil surgeon will provide you with written orders for the vaccines. You may obtain the vaccines anywhere you like, such as from the local health department, your personal doctor, or your favorite pharmacy.
  • Form Completion: Once everything is complete, the doctor will finalize and sign the vaccination section of Form I-693.
  • Receive Your Report: You'll be issued a report verifying your vaccination status, which you will include with your green card application.

Your age and prior vaccination history are the main determinants.

In 2024, depending on age and vaccination history, U.S. immigrants require various vaccines, such as COVID-19, measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, hepatitis B, influenza, pneumonia, meningitis, polio, tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis. Your civil surgeon will determine which vaccinations are required in your particular case.

There is no medical reason why you cannot obtain all needed vaccinations at the same time. This has been scientifically proven to be safe and effective. However, some vaccinators have a policy limiting vaccinations to no more than 3 or 4 at a time, even though there is no medical reason for this.
