After completing an overseas medical examination for a K-1, will a "supplemental" I-693 be enough at the initial AOS interview?

Los Angeles, CA |

I had my physical done in September 27, 2012 and on March 8th I am scheduled for the AOS initial interview. On the I-797C form the list states to to bring "A completed medical examination (Form I-693) and vaccination supplement in a sealed envelope (unless already submitted)."
On the USCIS site the instructions for i-693 state on page 4 that If "you are a K-1 visa holder (that is me) are not required to have another medical examination as long as your Form I-485 is filed within one year of your overseas medical examination. Regardless of if you are exempt from a medical exam, you are still required to complete certain portions of the I-693 and have a Civil Surgeon certify the form (and seal it in an evelope)." Will this portion be enough on what they are asking me to bring with me?
