Why You Need a Physical for Citizenship
A physical is required for citizenship and green card requests so that you can receive vaccinations for any diseases you would be at risk for in the United States. The exam also ensures you do not carry any diseases or conditions that would prevent you from obtaining citizenship.
Several vaccinations* and tests are required during the immigrant physical, including:
- Syphilis blood test
- Gonorrhea urine test
- Influenza vaccine
- Measles vaccine
- Diphtheria vaccine
- Tetanus vaccine
- Pertussis vaccine
- Polio vaccine
- Mumps vaccine
- Rotavirus vaccine
- Rubella vaccine
- Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B vaccines
- Meningococcal vaccine
- Varicella vaccine
- Pneumococcal vaccine
If you have a copy of your vaccination records, we will be able to review them and determine if further vaccinations are needed. If you do not have your vaccination records, the doctor can take a blood test to prove that you have been immunized. Be sure to bring a valid form of ID so that we can verify your identity.
Some locations require an appointment for an immigration physical. Please call ahead to confirm the requirements of your location.
