Molly Petersen's curator insight, April 10, 2014 2:33 AM

This article is about the medical exam that immigrants have to go through to become a permanent resident or get a green card. They state that each immigrant entering the US seeking an adjustment of their status must prove that they have been vaccinating against certain diseases such as measles, mumps, polio, tetanus, influenza, etc. These physicians who are approved by the USCIS determine if that person needs to get a certain vaccine based on ACIP recommendations. The fees for the vaccination are for the applicant to negotiate with the civil physician. Along with vaccines one must get a chest x-ray, tuberculin skin test and blood tests. I think that this is a good for our country because we can protect more of the people already living here and it will help keep an outbreak from happening. 

Jacob Ostreng's comment, April 11, 2014 6:21 PM
I think that this is a good idea. this will help stop the spread of potentially deadly diseases into the country.
Anne Meyer's curator insight, June 3, 2014 10:03 AM
