The US Citizen does not need to go through a medical evaluation. Just the intending immigrant does. Good Luck.

You do not fill out the I-693. A civil surgeon is required to fill it out.

The intending immigrant needs the medical. You go to the civil surgeon, they fill it out and give you a sealed envelope (you get a copy). Do not temper with the sealed envelope as it is opened only by immigration.

The Civil Surgeon will complete the I693 for the individual adjusting their status - therefore the one who needs the vaccines (if at all) is the one adjusting status.
