What is an immigration medical exam?

When you register for lawful permanent status in the United States, you are required to have a medical exam or physical.

It also ensures that you are up to date on the following vaccinations:

  • Varicella
  • Tetanus
  • Diphtheria
  • Rubella
  • Measles
  • Rotavirus
  • Mumps
  • Polio
  • Pertussis
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)
  • Meningococcal disease

 Your examiner also screens for drug and alcohol addiction.

What happens during an immigration medical exam?

Dr. Miller and the team at Neudorf Infectious Diseases Clinic have years of experience performing immigration physicals and provide quick turnaround on the required paperwork to help fast-track the legal process.
