COVID Vaccine for Immigration

October 21, 2021 by Dr. Gregory Snider0

Immigration Update! As of 10/1/21 the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service (USCIS) has added a vaccination requirement for immigrants and refugees. All individuals who are applying for “adjustment of status” must now COMPLETE a COVID-19 vaccination series (with rare exceptions).  This may include the SINGLE shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine or TWO shots of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines. Essentially, anyone of any age who meets the requirements for any COVID-19 vaccine must be vaccinated. The Civil Surgeon cannot sign and date the Form I-693 (Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record) for immigrants or “modified’ Form I-693 for refugees until this vaccination requirement has been met.  Call us with any questions about this new requirement.
