The Broward County Health Department announced it is now offering all services needed to meet the requirements of the immigration medical examination.

The services are being offered from 8 a.m. to noon Mondays and Wednesdays at the Fort Lauderdale Health Center, 2421 SW Sixth Ave.
Appointments are required and may be made by calling 954-467-4705.

“We are pleased to offer this important service in our community,” said Dr.  Paula Thaqi, the department’s director. 

As part of the requirement for obtaining permanent residence in the United States, most applicants must undergo a medical examination.

The department is offering the service to persons 18 years of age or older who have applied for adjustment of immigration status, have received a letter advising them of an appointment for application review, and have been told the medical examination if required.

The services provided include a medical examination, screening for tuberculosis, laboratory tests, immunizations for adults, treatment of certain health conditions, referrals for additional services and completion of the relevant immigration form.

At least two visits to the health center are needed to complete the examination.
