Xcel Urgent Care is approved to perform immigration examinations for individuals seeking permanent residency (Green Card) as required by the USCIS. The medical examination includes an interview, a physical exam, a tuberculosis blood test, a blood test for syphilis, and a urine test for gonorrhea. During the exam, we review your vaccination record and any required vaccines can be administered during the same visit.
Upon your return visit 7 days later, if all tests are normal and your vaccination record is complete, you will be given a completed I-693 form in a sealed envelope for USCIS, as well as a copy for your records.
The fee for the examination is $400 payable in cash, check, or credit card. This fee includes the tuberculosis blood test, the syphilis blood test, and the gonorrhea urine test. The fee does not include any additional tests that may be required based on the initial assessment. For example, a positive tuberculosis blood test requires a chest X-ray to be performed and a positive syphilis blood test requires a second confirmatory blood test.
Exams are by appointment only. Please call (844) 923-5227 to make an appointment.
Preparing for your visit:
To avoid multiple visits and unnecessary vaccination costs, please bring in any vaccination records you have, including childhood vaccination records.
You do not need to fast before the exam. If you have a tendency to faint when your blood is drawn, drink plenty of fluids before coming in.
You do not need to bring in an I-693 form, but you do need to bring an official photo ID, such as a passport, a driver’s license, or a state ID. If you have a USCIS number (A- number), please bring it with you.
For adults aged 18 through 64, USCIS requires proof of a completed covid vaccine series, and childhood series of tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis (Tdap) and measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccines. A dose of Tdap within the last 10 years is also necessary. A flu shot is required during the flu season. If there is no history of chickenpox disease, the chickenpox vaccine is also required. Finally, the hepatitis B vaccine is required for adults 18-59 years-old.
If no official documentation is available, a dose of Tdap must be administered. Because many individuals do not remember having had chickenpox, we offer an inexpensive blood test to check for immunity against chickenpox, which would obviate the need for the expensive chickenpox vaccine. A similar test for immunity against measles/mumps/rubella and hepatitis B can be performed in lieu of a vaccine.
Vaccine prices are as follows:
Hepatitis B: $80
You do not have to receive vaccines from our clinic but you do need to show proof of having received the required vaccines. If you have insurance, we can provide you with a prescription so you can get your vaccines at a pharmacy that would bill your insurance. This way you would not have to pay for the vaccines.
