What is an immigration medical examination?

An immigration examination is a medical screening for certain conditions specified by the US Public Health Service. The examination includes a physical exam, medical history, chest X-ray, and blood tests.

Children under 15 years of age are required to undergo a general physical exam and immunizations, but they usually do not need blood tests or chest X-rays.
