Once the applicant has completed the necessary documentation and made an appointment, the next step is to undergo the medical exam.
The applicant may need to go to the appointment after an overnight fast but this is something that should be confirmed with the USCIS civil surgeon performing the medical exam.
However, there are specific precautions that need to be taken by pregnant women.
The most important thing for a pregnant applicant to do is to discuss the pregnancy with the USCIS civil surgeon so that the appropriate steps can be taken to protect both the mother and the baby.
Immunization Status Routine vaccination, especially during childhood, is not part of medical care in many countries.
While this is standard for pregnant women at imaging and x-ray facilities, any pregnant woman that needs a chest x-ray for tuberculosis clearance should make sure she is properly draped to reduce the likelihood that her fetus is exposed to radiation.
Also, specific types of immunizations should not be received during pregnancy given the risks of vaccination to the growing baby.
